Wonderful to find a new voice

the way I did w.Soviero Mimi in 1977.

She is superb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  I may have posted this, but if you

want to cry like me...you watch this.

  She would come forward slowly on

"Ma quando vien lo sgelo" (note a

kind of "breath" on the "Ma" and then let out 

a Birgit Nilssonian top note on "E mio" that

threw us on the floor. (Remember, we were 

standees.)….I miss her so.....Called her on

every birthday....NO ONE in my view had the

combination of beauty of tone and WAGNERIAN volume.

My friend saw Livia Budai as

Eboli in SF .He fell on the floor

in hysterics!!!! Who let her out?

I do not care if you are male,

female,or not sure...YOU are better!

  My favorite version of this scene

  with Giuseppe Taddei (6/26/16) and

Rosanna Carteri.The way he says the

word "Entrate" is so warm...she never came

here..a pity!!!!!

  Gorgeous soprano. When she

  started the Norina Don Pasquale

aria, the resonance was so amazing,

I thought she was singing in my EAR!
