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.
