Category:general -- posted at: 7:48am EST

First Met telecast..At one time we really

hated her doing heavy roles.....but she has

emerged as the LAST of the really special

divas in the Muzio,Favero,Soviero,Zeani

tradition. Phrasing,emotion, love of the line.

Look Zinka and Renata had some BADDD top notes.

Even in heavier roles, she did more than anyone

does today.... BRAVA!!!!!

   More of the great lady!!!!!! I called

Category:general -- posted at: 10:51am EST

Her Met debut 1/31/55. I FROZE

from 6:00 A.M. Her first line ended

with "soave" and we all said, "Zinka who???"

Not really..but imagine Zinka, Renata,

Stella in the same season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Category:general -- posted at: 10:35am EST

In opera history, who else could combine

volume and beauty.We used to run after the limo as she yelled CIAO out the window. One

night I got impaled on a fire hydrant and

almost became a castrato senza coglioni!!!!

I called you every birthday and I am "calling"

you NOW.  GOD BLESS my Renata!!!!

Top started to get flat..so what!

I cannot hold back my tears!!!!!

Category:general -- posted at: 10:19am EST

She rose from the chair on "Ma" and

then when she got to "E MIO" it was a

WAGNERIAN sound...Note the little

"breath" before the "ma". MIO DIO!!!!

Category:general -- posted at: 10:16am EST

Last note is closest to the way she

sounded live.    Wagnerian

volume, like a jet plane!!!!

Category:general -- posted at: 10:09am EST

My darling friend Renata Tebaldi

made our lives so happy. I miss

that wonderful great Renata,

whose Desdemona debut was 1/31/55. and when we met

her on 2/1, we did not know

it was her birthday. NO ONE

made us happier.Her shows

were events of LOVE!!!!!
