Happy Birthday to a living legend of history of the Opera singing, one of the greatest, one of the most beautiful voices ever, the extraordinary, wonderful, magnificent… our one and only…. Leontyne Price!!!!! The history of the Opera and the history of the Met would not be the same without the gorgeous beautiful voice and presence of Leontyne Price.
The first time I saw Leontyne Price, was in the 1983 production from the Met of Verdi’s La Forza del Destino along with Giuseppe Giacomini and Leo Nucci and I was completely blown away by her performance! I became a fan!!! I will never, ever forget when I saw her for the first time in my life in “La Forza del Destino”!
So many wonderful performances….. Aida, La Forza del Destino, Il Trovatore, Un Ballo in Maschera…. so many operas and wonderful performances to name!!! I will also never forget her magnificent singing in Verdi’s Requiem!
We are so lucky and blessed to have this beautiful living legend of the Opera with us. Leontyne Price is a true TREASURE of the Opera!!!!
Thank you, Leontyne Price for your beautiful, unique voice and for your many wonderful, extraordinary performances!!! You gave so much to us!!!
HAPPY 90th BIRTHDAY, LEONTYNE PRICE!!!!
