Diva / Mensch pair for 4/18/18
Continuing with our Italian theme, two arias sung by the divine Leontyne Price:
Diva: Puccini - - "Chi il bel sogno di Doretta" from *La Rondine.* Absolute beauty, for beauty's sake. A supreme opportunity to show off, and who doesn't like that.
Mensch: Verdi - - "La vergine degli angeli" from *La Forza del Destino.* Ravishingly beautiful like the Puccini, but a more inward sort of beauty.
