Happy Birthday Regina Resnik

The dynamic American singing actress celebrates the 90th anniversary of her birth today.

  • 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.

      • 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

    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.

    • armerjacquino

      Bitterness and venom, you say?

      Well, there’s a lot of it about.

      • Mme. Euterpova

        Yep, I’v been on the receiving end of the rudeness and venom. And she didn’t even know me. She has no respect whatsoever for anyone else except for what she thinks she deserved in her career.

        • Famous Quickly

          I could sing Mme. Euterpova

          *tomorrow* — it’s a question of rudeness and venom.

          • Mme. Euterpova

            How did you get a picture of Resnik’s vagina?

      Does this have any meaning, I wonder idly?
