Another Favorite Clip - A little more Jackie ... with a side of Scotto

In honor of the Metropolitan Opera Guild's luncheon this week - “Jackie! Celebrating Marilyn Horne” - I thought I would give you all Another Favorite Clip from the Marilyn Horne vault.

This is a wonderful performance of Verdi's Requiem conducted by Claudio Abbado featuring a 36 year old Marilyn Horne, Renata Scotto, Luciano Pavarotti and Nicolai Ghiaurov. Brilliant singing for sure. Can we discuss for a moment the use of the open vowels? Get it, girl.

When you're done with Jackie, pop down and hear Renata Scotto sing one helluvah "Libera me". Trust me: you wont be disappointed.
