Ritratto Di Marilyn Horne (Portrait Of Marilyn Horne), a 1994 documentary produced and directed by Nigel Watts for Italian Classica TV. While the host speaks in Italian, most of the video is in English with Italian subtitles and includes interviews with the diva herself, conductor Henry Lewis (her ex-husband), author Jane Scovell (co-writer of her autobiography), colegues soprano Dame Joan Sutherland and bass-baritone Samuel Ramey. The program features the music of Rossini, Bellini, Vivaldi, Bizet, Copland and many others (both classical and showtunes) in excerpts from Horne’s many recitals, operatic performances, TV appearances and masterclasses. A wonderful document about a truely great artist. The most celebrated mezzo of the 20th century, she almost single-handedly revived the forgotten masterpieces of Rossini and brought Handel’s operas to American audiences. She was also (and continues to be) a tremendous influence on American mezzos and countertenors alike.
