    My latest podcast at: http://handelmania.libsyn.com features a Los Angeles 1980 La Boheme with Diana Soviero,whom I have always considered one of the greatest artists in my long opera experience. I think you will like it. Diana,along with Scotto and Zeani, are the very last of the “verismo divas,” and the voice, combined with the attention to the phrase, the word, the inflection, add up to a “complete” artist. I feel fortunate that I have enjoyed Diana for over 35 years. Brava to her always!!!!!

    I get trashed for daring to speak of Leontyne’s crazy mannerisms..but here is an example of GREATNESS, showing that when she was not doing her “thing,” it was amazing…just amazing!!!!!!!!!!

    THIS is what happens when you do not have enough covers for the Ring Operas..or it could be the MALEDIZIONE of the machine….
