Subject: Corena (was: "una furtiva")

Among Corena's many other scene-stealing episodes were Mathieu in Act III ANDREA 
CHENIER, darting around at the back of the stage chasing cockroaches/mice and swatting 
them with a broom.  There was his entrance as Dr. Bartolo in BARBIERE holding a small, white 
poodle whose fancy, coiffed haircut was in perfect mimicry of Corena's extravagant white, 
powdered wig.  He got laughs without singing a note!   To say nothing of letting him near the 
soda water bottle as Alcindoro in the Cafe Momus scene of LA BOHEME.  Many a Mimi from 
Tebaldi on down got "accidentally" sprayed.
