Ross also enjoyed a successful international career, appearing at La Scala in Milan, La Fenice in Venice, the opera houses of Bologna, Palermo, Florence, Verona, the Vienna State Opera, the Berlin State Opera, the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, etc. Her repertoire included roles such as Abigaille, Lady Macbeth, Amelia, Leonora, Elisabetta, Aida, Gioconda, Santuzza, Maddalena, Tosca, Donna Anna, Medea, Norma, etc. Ross was forced into retirement in 1979 due to illness.”
