Millo’s love letter to Puccini

On a day of anniversary, these thoughts from a great soprano could not be overlooked. Her posting on Operavision could not have been more well-researched or heart-felt. In a time when appearance is more important than voice, I cannot be quiet, and will NOT be quiet, nor still in knowing that THIS great Minnie ought to be singing tonight. For any who heard her Laggiu nel Soledad at her 25th anniversary recital in November of 2009…and me, who has the distinct pleasure of hearing this voice more often, recently, than most…her inflection, emotion, quality of tone and gargantuan high C would have sent Puccini soaring, and yet she routes on her colleagues and wishes for the best possible presentation for them. A true elegant Diva…folllowing the examples of her mentors. I honor him today and I honor her voice as the only true and authentic voice alive today that belongs to the Girl of the Golden West.

Listen to Millo’s performance of “Laggiu nel Soledad” from the 25th Anniversary 2009
