She claims to be the ‘Mistress of Evil’, but how does Maleficent compare to the wickedest women in opera? Classic FM has given a 'Maleficent rating' to an unnerving host of classical music’s villainesses - from the mildly malevolent to utterly maniacal. By Rob Weinberg
To proclaim yourself 'Mistress of Evil' is admittedly quite bonkers. But does Maleficent live up to her own self-image? Well, she puts a curse on a baby princess, and has a shape-shifting pet raven called Diablo, who can talk. In her defence, Jolie says Maleficent is "complicated". Hmm, sounds like a euphemism to us. Of course, this bad fairy has to get the maximum Maleficent rating of five out of five.
