Born on this day in 1412 martyr and saint Jeanne d’Arc. How many theatrical, cinematic, operatic interpretations of her life? I’ll start:
Birthday anniversaries of composer Max Bruch (1838), bass André Pernet (1894), conductor Maurice Abravanel and soprano Mafalda Favero (both 1903), baritone Francesco Valentino (1907) and baritone David Ohanesian (1927).
Happy 81st birthday mezzo-soprano Shirley Love.
