RIP Regina Resnik

The Metropolitan Opera
More to come......

And of course the pics and videos:

As Carmen

Long known as one of the definitive Carmens of the day, here she sings an excerpt from the musical Carmen Jones:

This Ballo in Maschera excerpt credits no one and gives no date, but ain't she glorious?:

Dear Lord! I had no idea this was available! The Febraury 1, 1958, radio broadcast of Vanessa in its entirety, shortly after its January 15 world premiere!
