Yes. This is a problem especially noticeable if one uses speakers with an extended HF response (which need not be peaky) or one is listening in small or medium rooms with hard untreated surfaces.
Among my tests for system setup are the Queen of the Night's arias on various recordings.
I have made some progress with acoustic treatment, better equipment, toeing in speakers less to provide more of a HF rolloff, and power treatment (this last to my surprise), but soprano "glare" is difficult to eliminate entirely. A very high ceiling would help, I think, but that's not an easy fix for most of us.
I believe that a major contributor to the problem is recording technique, which places mics much closer to the voice than one's ears ever would be. In a large performance hall, the soprano would be far away, and the many seats and nonparallel surfaces would reduce that glare. Many microphones also have a rising high-frequency response, and many classical recordings are bass shy, which accentuates any overemphasis in the treble.
By the way, I've experienced the issue in person, which tells me that recordings and/or hifi systems exhibiting this are not necessarily at fault. In a poorly treated medium-sized room in a North Carolina town, a recital by a visiting soprano had me running for the door. Even the Musical Director of the series, herself a concert pianist, found the singing of this "diva" objectionable -- not in any technical sense, just for excessive loudness at the top of the range.
