Diva / Mensch pair for 9/26/18

I'm closing out the mezzo/soprano theme with a classic of the genre, the Ammeris/Aida confrontation in Verdi's *Aida.*

Diva: Amneris (Egyptian princess)

Mensch: Aida (Ethiopian princess, Amneris's slave)

I found a performance with Grace Bumbry playing both roles! There's a serious Patty and Cathy situation going on here.
