Edita Gruberova had a rather

"eccentric" vocal sound, but

she  was amazing, and people

traveled all over to hear her.

I never saw him, but am told

the voice was exciting.Whenever

we hear thunder, we know he

is singing in heaven!

   The great Mario!!!!!

Category:general -- posted at: 7:45pm EDT

I was 15 and the first singer

I ever saw live was Mario

in my first opera, Aida.I saw

him 40 times, and the man

was sensational.He had a

"bronze column of sound"

from bottom to top.Loved this

man.He once came out and

said,"Hello,boys" in my poor

little ear!!!!

  I have been so happy to have

sung in various opera groups,

and have enjoyed some fine

artists (like Sam Ramey,Paul

Plishka, and Marisa Galvany)

BUT some people live in a world

of their own..like Sue...who also

does the E flat in the Aida which

I think I have published. She vocalizes

on our NY bridge and therefore

this accounts for many auto crashes.

  Mio Dio!!!!!!!!!

When I taught languages

I would do little plays with

the kids. This is not our

best effort, but it was so

adorable to have the kids

do this Barbiere Scene. I

sang many Bartolos (one with

Ramey) so I was familiar with

this.  LOVE KIDS!!!

beauty of tone.

Buon compleanno!! Il

gran tenore,Giuseppe

di Stefano!!!! Incredibile

Over the years, you come

to find the very special

operatic moments that

thrill!!! Di Stefano,in 1950,

sounds like the greatest, but

sadly he made errors in his

technique, but still the man

was fabulous.
