Shirley Verrett, 1931-2010

Alas, another one of my all-time favourites has passed away. This is what I will remember of the great mezzo cum soprano the most, her phenomenal Lady Macbeth at La Scala with Cappucilli and Abbado. Hope it'll be available on DVD soon:

Here's another wonderful testament of her powers, a sequence from her Met telecast of Tosca with Pavarotti. This one has actually been released on DVD recently so do look out for it!
