Shirley Verrett (1931-2010)
This is quite stunning. She has passed away.
My most vivid memory of her is in Meyerbeer's L'Africaine in San Francisco, possibly my only experience of a Meyerbeer opera.
I have an identity problem. On the one hand I write about the international world of opera, or at least the parts that reach me. On the other I write about music in Sacramento.
