    Ah, Maria Callas - probably the most famous of the divas. She had a hell of a good voice ... and a hell of a temper.

    I wish opera would not be such a loathed art by some people. I would LOVE to see a live opera, because my feeling is that you actually need to be there in person to truly get the emotion of the performance. Well, at least I've had the pleasure of seeing live ballet.

    I can't do Opera. Sounds too much like a train wreck.

    Thank you so much, P F Tinmore, for putting up this beautiful and moving religious song, by Barbara Bonney, my favorite of all those who have sung it, and I have it on one of my playlists. She sings it movingly as most all sopranos do. I love her voice. Melting. :)

    Now, now, Count ... you're just upset because you aren't allowed to sip the blood during the performance.

    Hi Granny...love to see your avy...lol. Makes me smile. :)

    Two immediate members of my family were classically trained in opera [Juilliard] and I grew up listening to Dad singing it. I came to love it very much.

    So glad to hear from you, this beautiful day,
