The gift of song
You know, Natalie Dessay really belongs on this list of best-evers, too. She was the terrific eponymous soprano in Lyric Opera of Chicago's production of Massenet's Manon this season. She was an amazing Morgana in Lyric's 2000 production of Handel's Alcina as well. I think if I had it to do all over again I would come back as a coloratura soprano. Or it would be nice if I were at least able to carry a tune in my next life.
My thanks to Opera Chic for the sensational image.
