Famous and renowned opera singer of the future, from the 1983 science fiction novel The Celestial Steam Locomotive by Michael Coney. In a story from 91,137 Cyclic, La Rialta is murdered by a genetically engineered raccoon-human hybrid named Raccoona-Three. However, the trial goes a long way to establishing civil rights for animal-human hybrids, as she is put on trial like a human instead of just arbitrarily put down like an animal.

The secret is that La Rialta was also an animal-human hybrid; her genes were spliced with those of a hippopotamus.
