All in all, I have my little proof of what a good buy this book will be. It doesn't take long to read a few pages if you're interested in women with something hard to explain, what they call enigma (my mother wore a perfume called Enigma). But, really, I don't know for sure if they are that magical or whether I perhaps created, well I think I created, like D'Annunzio in his stories, a diadem of glory in my mind. Was it all me?
....sometimes Rasponi ended with a question.
It was worth the price for sure. These stories are more than a book, but a wonderful, time warping, epoch revealing set of grateful and even ungrateful memoirs.
I highly recommend this book to lovers of Great Singing. It clearly shows the difference between Opera as it was performed and the way it is to day and why many people to day see it as a dying art ruled by the directors and not the singers who make the Opera.
I found this book when I was in the process of downsizing my rather large library in anticipation of a move to smaller quarters. I had obviously bought it years ago and misshelved it. I read it in 2 days, which is a reflection on both the gripping nature of these ladies' stories and the high quality of writing possessed by the author.
I cannot praise this work enough; it takes a lot to make these old eyes tear up.
