OVER THE TOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A collection of material that illustrates how opera singers can sometimes
become so in love with their own voices, that they forget that the
composers would sock them in the mouth if they were alive.

 Also included are some rather delusional people who have cracked up
 even the most serious opera enthusiast.

Whether you like it or not, you cannot say this boring!!!!!!

You vant Petrova?? Vell, you got her!!!!

 I just spoke to Zinka, who vishes you a happy Fourth of July, and she vants to tell you that since she is coaching Vassilka Petrova (I think she is dead)...Vell, she vants to see if it helped...So here are two arias she just recorded.

          Let me know your comments so I can tell her if she is a good teacher up there (or down there...) 

(8 delusional minutes of pleasure)

P.S. Birgit got very angry at me when I told her I spliced in the great Petrova high unnatural B that ends "La Mamma Morta' into her "In questa reggia." (I will someday podcast it)
