Diva / Mensch pair for 2/28/17
Before we get to our Diva / Mensch pair for this week, I'd like to send out a call for ideas! I'm at a loss for a theme for March and would love to have some ideas. Please email me at divamensch at divamensch dot com with your idea. I'll send you a fabulous DivaMensch-themed CD if I use it!
I'm closing out the opera month with this duo:
Diva: Carmen - - the Habañera, sung by scary Russian diva Elena Obraztsova.
Mensch: Micäela (the nice girl in that opera), her show-stopping third act aria, "Je dis que rien ne m’épouvante," sung by the divine Leontyne Price.
