  • Régine Crespin. R.I.P.

    I was going to give this a subject like "Bad week for sopranos," but that would not have done justice to Régine Crespin, who died on Wednesday. Unlike Beverly Sills, Crespin left me with indelible memories of some of the greatest performances I've ever seen, including a performance of Tosca (with Franco Corelli) that was followed by a 30-minute ovation at the old Met, and a Sieglinde that eclipsed Birgit Nilsson's Brunhilde on the same stage, no small feat.

    R.I.P.
