Not a sigh exactly, but that moment in the "live" 1965 BORGIA which
introduced Caballé to New York, when she starts to slowly ascend the
scale in the recitative before "Com'é Bello".  You can hear the
silence in the auditorium go from 20% to Zero.  People literally 
cannot believe what they are hearing.  When she finally tops
out at B-flat, singing ppppp, you sense that every person in
the room realizes they are participating in history being made.
The SCREAM that emanates from that audience at the close
of the aria is absolutely thrilling.....
