Sophie Augustine Leo in Paris - 1820
Garcia's Don Giovanni, Fodor's Contessa (in Figaro) were gratifications that may be mentioned in retrospect; to describe them would be impossible. Nor, for that matter, could one do justice to Pasta's classic beauty, to her taste in matters artistic, to her characterization of solemn resignation in Zingarelli's "Ombra adorata."
