La Diva, which by way of an intro features an extract from Puccini’s La Bohême (performed by Maria Callas) and full accompaniment from the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
La diva (track 6) is a kind of thing to which Celine has developed a special taste. She sings a piece of an opera aria with (the dead) Maria Callas. This year (2007) the world is celebrating the sad 30th anniversary of death of one of the greatest opera personalities of all time. Celine is the champion of reviving the dead legends. She sang with late Sinatra, recently with a hologram Elvis, and now with late Callas.
