La Cieca thinks any revival of Adriana Lecouvreur is reason for rejoicing, though this photo made her stop and wonder: since when does Hillary Clinton sing verismo?

Oh, all right, it’s La Cieca’s little joke. Our Secretary of State has not sung any opera role, recently anyhow. The Hillary lookalike is none other than Nelly Miricioiu, who recently interpreted the embattled comedienne in the solidly Italianate company of Victoria Joyce, Hubert Francis, Alison Kettlewell, Simon Lobelson, Daniel Grice, Andrew Mackenzie-Wicks and (non ti scordar di me!) Simon Bainbridge.
