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

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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 EDT

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 EDT

Last note is closest to the way she

sounded live.    Wagnerian

volume, like a jet plane!!!!

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!!!!!

I met him when I discovered Soviero in 1977.

When I complimented him on the way he

ended the opera "Mimi..." he said he did

appreciate what I said more than speaking

of his high C. Shows great artistry.
