Kiri Te Kanawa Is 70


My favorite Maori soprano turns 70 today. If you know her, you probably know her from this. And rightfully so. Happy birthday!

Do you notice she doesn't need to breathe? The rest of us need to.

Those of us of a certain age know her from this, tutti frutti outfit and all.

love her for her work in Leonard Bernstein's symphonic version of "West Side Story", where she stars with José Carreras. She not only sings like a goddess, she also stays in the background and smoothes over the skirmishes between Carreras and Bernstein. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjxWKL6jhC4
