Who’s a Clever Boy Then?
Once again I played my record of Dame Joan Sutherland singing the mad scene from Lucia di Lamamoor by Donizetti, one of the all time greatest soprano arias ever composed. Those who have heard it will know that the way La Stupenda, as the Italians called her, held the final top C was amongst the most astonishing achievements in the history of the human voice. Well she got it spot on again, not surprising as I always played the same record, and her voice smashed a crystal flower vase on the bookcase.
I was confined to my room for the rest of the day but it was worth it, both to hear such wonderful music and to complete a word press prompt in the space of just eight consecutive words.
