Did I hear someone say Magda Olivero? What gigantic strong muscles she 
had and she used them to advantage.
Yes, she had a vibrato to the annoyance of some but her embracing of a 
role right down to her very being was a gift that washed away any deficits 
she might have had.
Never to be forgotten.

On another note: I saw AVA's production of Trovatore this evening and was 
mighty impressed with some really fine voices.  The Manrico has such a 
beautiful voice -- too bad his acting was like a stick.  Today, a beautiful 
voice just isn't enough.
The Leonora too had a fine voice but there are so many fine sopranos 
today, she's got her work cut out for her.
The Azucena ran away with the roses this evening.  She's a natural.
The Count di Luna got me good. When he began Il Balen I lost it and I 
don't even have to tell you why.  You get it!
It was a very fine evening with a small company that did their best and 
came up smiling.
(Forgive me - I misplaced my program and cannot remember their names)
