Beverly Sills’ début as Brünhilde March 1, 2007Posted by Jeff in Beverly Sills, Giuseppe Verdi, Italian, Opera, Theater, Vaudeville.
From November 8, 1979. Well, really, name one other world-class soprano who could have pulled this off!
Extra credit to whomever figured out that “Sempre libera” sounds just like “God Bless America,” especially when sung by pigs.
