Diva / Mensch pair for 9/19/18

Our pair today is from Verdi's *Don Carlo:*

Diva: Eboli - - "O don fatale," performed by Shirley Verrett

Mensch: Elisabetta - - "Tu che le vanita," performed by Maria Callas

Verrett is the most noble of Ebolis, but still can spit tacks. The highlight of the Callas clip is her performance during the orchestra prelude, so incredibly expressive. The moment at 1:30 when she slowly raises her right hand, it destroys me.
