"Loris,ove sei" when I saw was as if the entire

theatre SHOOK!!!  Not a

"Tebaldi voice" but like

All one must do is to listen

to MY TAPE of the Olivero

Met 4/3/75 65.

NO ONE like her. I used to

call her on birthdays...and

I consider her totally one of

the greatest singers EVER!!!!!

so sorry for the

people and wish

people my LOVE!!

There is just so much music

in life..I really had not seen

Diana's great Butterfly.I  have

to find the cast. I did send

flowers and champagne for

the 80th birthday Mar.19.I

still consider the greatest since

Tebaldi, who did once kiss her.

I have never booed..even Baum.

Look..the Met hired him. Last

week a guy yelled at Brenda

Rae during the Zerbinetta

aria.."You have no technique."

They threw him out...but we

know of the loggionisti at

Scala and other people doing

things LIVE..I was too shy and

never yelled at Zinka that her

kicking her train and dust in

act two Tosca made me cough!!

VAT????  You BUM!!!!

When Dolora had me do a mini

Handelman master class for

her students,knowing I knew

the "good stuff," I said to her,

"It must be some great thrill

to sing the Judgement Scene!!"

Answer:"I just want to get the

notes out!!!!"

I made one Facebook post that

was rejected and so I am forced

HAPPILY to drive you crazy

much more,until they let me

post..GREAT FOR YOU!!!!

Martha Moedl had 3/22 birthday

and Alfred Poell was 3/18. I can

still SEE Moedl in 1957 in Walkure.

Had some flaws...but for me a

great MIRACLE!!!!!!!

life shares Mar.19!!!!

Bieito Toilet bowl Ballo.

favorite singer? I saw Zinka

   Of all the singers I have

seen live..Tucker remains

the greatest tenor for me.

I write to his sons often and

am happy to have thrilled to

his great voice.

I tried!!!! The greatest in

my life...and only B flat


I once taped 31 of them

LIVE...and then I did no.

31...I think I used an

umbrella for a sword.
