So, today’s Singer Crush Sunday is short and sweet because of the electrifying excitement from the success of our diva this week (check out Kara Smoot, here).
We had to, just had to, feature two greats: the soprano Montserrat Caballé and mezzo-soprano Marylin Horne singing the Barcarolle from Les contes d‘Hoffman, “Belle nuit ô nuit d’amour” by Jacques Offenbach. In this concert edition, circa 1990 (thankfully, the over-sparkled singer fashion of the time has changed since), the divinas both come out hand in hand swinging and smiling ready to sing. The delight and pure joy is of course, timeless, and as you can hear is contagious to the audience.
Believe me when we say that though there maybe reports of “diva tendencies” backstage, this is generally how we react to other singers onstage, and off!
With one look: “it’s time to PLAY!”
Goodnight, fellow Divas and Divini. Until next week! 🙂
