    After watching the video of Turandot with Corelli and Udovich, I looked her up online because I had never heard of her before. That’s how I found your comments about her singing. I don’t know if she is the best Turandot ever but she sang In questa reggia with as little screaming as possible. I’m not a musician, but even I can comprehend what a fiendish piece of music it is.

    I only recently discovered your website and I must say I am very impressed indeed. It is no surprise that others recognize this too and you were the winner of the Scherman-Peabody award.

    Keep up the great work!
