A Vision in Sound; Tosca in Rehearsal: Shirley Verrett and Luciano Pavarotti


Drawing by Callie Floor
Small press publishers are getting quite inventive in how they explore and execute new formats for sharing the work of artists.  Case in point is Kindling, a literary journal which publishes its issues on a series of 20  4X6 cards contained in an envelope which carries the table of contents on its cover. I have a 250-word short story in the current issue of Kindling, #5, about an African-American boy who cares for his opera-singing, mentally unstable mother with the help of a retired tuxedo maker from Milano.

When I was a young girl, my dad was a huge fan of the opera singers Grace Bumbry and Shirley Verrett. Here is Ms. Verrett rehearsing with Luciano Pavarotti for a performance of Tosca. This is a gem !  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhGtqDa_L38
