Greatest Moments of Singing XII (Buon Compleanno, Magda Olivero!)

Today the amazing Magda Olivero turns 100 years young, her marbles still very much intact. Here is the glorious Cherry Duet from Mascagni's L'Amico Fritz, where she is joined by another legend: Ferruccio Tagliavini.

The recording is from 70 years ago. Magda was 30!
