    Oh, good for her. I like her for she is very talented and she works her ass off to give a good show.

    Also love the Sarah Palin thing. Better than whats-her-name’s.

    In bocca al lupo, Dorotea della Metropolitan!

  • Spen says:

    Hahaha oh I like this very much! 0:56 -- 1:23 haha.

  • CwbyLA says:

    Does Dorothy Bishop do an impression of Bartoli? That would be funny!

    • MontyNostry says:

      These days, Bartoli does an impression of Bartoli.

      • Avantialouie says:

        Yes, but Bartoli’s impressions of Bartoli are even better than the original thing.

      • oedipe says:

        Bartoli sang elegantly and was in great voice for her Desdemona at the TCE a couple of weeks ago.
        BTW, rumor has it she will do a staged production of Norma in Paris.

  • perfidia says:

    That is wicked! Her impression is so filthily good that I hope she is an uncanny mimic, because otherwise she must have spent hours listening to Fleming’s attempts at crossover. I don’t wish that on anyone. Well, maybe on Sean Hannity and his ilk.
