Metropolitan Opera – Norma, 2017

My choir friend Barbara generously offered her extra ticket to me and we went to a fabulous production of Bellini’s Norma (which I had never heard before). If you ever have the opportunity to see sopranos Sondra Radvanosky or Joyce DiDonato, GO. Their singing was stunning. Mind blowing. God it’s great to live in New York. And to have friends!

I wonder, when Sondra was singing pianissimo and I could hear it where I was sitting, was she in reality singing mezzo forte? Which would mean her forte was really forte forte FORTE??
