    I’m so delighted to see La Resnik discussed favourably. Over a very long career she has been an amazing artist capably covering several “fache” as her voice colouring changed.

    To think she had already passed through the soprano range and then won huge acclaim for her Carmens around the sixties to still be onstage today doing “A Little Night Music” is no mean feat in anyone’s books.

    I saw her as the old woman in Queen of Spades thirty years ago and she was mesmerising. There’s not too many around today that will have half the career of Mme Resnik.

      She’s not still on stage as far as I know- A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC was 22 years ago.

      • Ruxxy says:

        My apologies armer -- you are right -- she did it in 1991. For some reason I had it in mind that she’d done it again recently. Blame the Baileys- everything’s new again :)

  • Mme. Euterpova says:

    For the past 70 years, she has demonstrated an intellect of the highest order, artistry of lofty calibre and vocalism of true greatness.

    And for those same 70 years, she has demonstrated dictatorial superiority over anyone and everyone, raging bitterness and the decorum of a woman who is totally unaware of herself, her verbal venom and her utter rudeness.
