Some of the more amusing and interesting parts occur when the ladies aren't interacting with Zucker: Barbieri belting it out with voce di petto in the restaurant; and Olivero doing Adriana's monologue; and Frazzoni singing along to Fanciuilla..

It's also interesting to see the looks on the faces of the divas when they first meet him and also at points during their interviews: Cerquetti is vaguely disturbed  when he enters (the best part occurs when she kicks her daughter out for being undisciplined, another moment when the diva is not interacting with Zucker); Simionato shocked and even contemptuous when he does not know who Maradona the soccer player is; and Pobbe, so difficult but you got to give her credit when she pretty much lays into him about gossip. I love her curt answer to Zucker's question, stupid because it comes out nowhere: What was the highest note you sang? Pobbe: A D. 

Uh, I don't think any of these ladies are alive at this point.
