God Bless Milka Ternina,

born 12/19/63. I would

have loved to be in your

studio when you taught

Zinka..my favorite singer.

Dear friends,

  Indeed this has been

an incredibly sad period

and I do hope you have

survived in the face of

tragedy. Let us pray the

vaccine will help and restore

peace and health wherever you

are.

   My sincerest love  Charlie

  I just found the son of my

darling Virginia Zeani on

facebook. Alessandro is a

doctor and now I feel

"part of the family." The

way she sings "CAAAAro"

says so much about her.

Lucky to have had  "three

madres" in my life...My own

ma,Virginia, and Renata.

Category:general -- posted at: 6:42pm EDT

Dear friends,

 I have posted here and  on

other forums for so long

I know I may repeat,and

you have archives also.

However,I do not recall

the zillions of things and do

not want to post hip-hop

so bear with me and enjoy

what I post(or skip it).My

buddy from 1977,Diana,did

a fabulous Violetta here with

BRONCHITIS!!! She is really

something.

Category:general -- posted at: 9:40am EDT

A marvelous company

with innovative

ideas.BUY the Elektra.

I think you will love

it. My 2nd favorite

opera.

Category:general -- posted at: 9:37am EDT

Nowadays,in every venue,

they all sing (usually down

a third) this aria. The very

great Sirach von Bodengraven

joins in. Povero Puccini.

 

Category:general -- posted at: 9:33am EDT

  I came to love Piotr

as a great artist and

friend.One of the

special singers today.

Category:general -- posted at: 9:29am EDT

We just lost her. A wonderful

emotional artist.She reads the

Traviata Letter as good as

Muzio!!!!!

Category:general -- posted at: 6:42pm EDT

Happy Birthday....When she

wrote me and sent photos

I reminded her of the funny

time she came to our party

after a big Gencer party and

only Gencer photos on the

walls and she said "What is

this..  SHRINE???"

When I see the scene from my

favorite film, Casablanca,,

and Madeline LeBeau,the

last surviving member of

the cast, sing  "mugir les

feroces soldats,"with the

tears streaming down both

her and my faces. I wish we

could take those idiots here

who KILL our anthem.

This may be funny, but it shows

what horrendous taste some

people have. VIVE France...and bring back

the end of the Carmelites!

of emotion she had.

Over 70 roles and could

have done more.
