Covid kills an American soprano

January 22, 2021 has sad news of the death from Coronavirus of Marcella Reale, who sang opposite Domingo and Carreras on several great stages.

Unusually for a bel canto soprano, her favourite role was Katerina Izmailova in Shostakovich’s opera.

  • Kev Lovett says:

    Was this legitimately COVID or was her passing labeled as such for insurance purposes and funding? The practice is rampant in the name of free money so facts matter. RIP

    • Andrew says:

      Any other conspiracy theories you wish to share?

      • Wendell T. says:

        Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

        That was debunked many times over the crying liberal years.

        No one sanctioned or disciplined Russia either.

        Maybe “senile Joe” will…..oh that’s right. He can’t even figure out where he is, who he’s talking to or articulate himself.

  • Nijinsky says:

    Sad….and this needs to stop. Too many casualties. Too little love….

  • Sue Sonata Form says:

    Gone much too young. And not forgotten, hopefully.
