Mercoledi Musicale

The Passing of a Prima Donna

On more than one occasion I have written about the incredible evening of July 20 1974 when a full blown Mistral threatened to cancel a performance of Bellini’s Norma. Fortunately performers, musicians, technicians and audience decided to say “damn the torpedoes full speed ahead”. And magic was made.

In memory of the incredible Montserrat Caballé who gave me many nights of musical thrills but never one to compare with that night in Orange. I was truly blessed.


On this day in 1780: The Great Hurricane of 1780 kills 20,000–30,000 in the Caribbean.
