Congratulations to those of you who identified the coloratura aria as The Laughing Song from Manon. Hey, not all Ernie fans are into Hip-Hop. And the answer is Amelita Galli-Curci. I’ve listened to a lot of sopranos. Next to my favorite of all time, Amelita, it has to be Joan Sutherland at number two. Whadda voice. Did you know that she was six foot two? You wonder how such a large woman could sing so high and so beautifully.  Amelita was a small person. She recorded that in 1917. She had to sing into a horn. It was long before electronic recording. It’s amazing how beautiful the sound is.
