This is a selection of some of my favorite photographs of my favorite mezzo on a significant birthday.
The real Cecilia can't keep a straight face.
This is Cecilia the mogul.
This is the "I'm too beautiful for you" picture.
There's no one like you.
They should have filmed the London Il Turco in Italia and released it. And I would still like to see Figaro from the Met on DVD. It's still my favorite. It doesn't hurt to nag. Have a very happy birthday.
