I really don’t want to say much here. I think she should just do it for me. There are so many incredibly talented sopranos I love to hear but for me there will never be another “O mio babbino caro” like Maria Callas’s. I find myself crying every time the tender notes fill my ears and the pain in her face is before my eyes. Not great anguish or over-the-top acting. Not even a buildup of powerful high notes. Just the simple heartbreak of a woman in love and on the brink of bliss and agony. La Divina forever . . .
