Ned Rorem in Juilliard School

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 39:

To Julliard for part of Callas's master class. She is, for me, the sole diva ever to perform meaningfully a meaningless repertory. From the moment she strode onto that Roman stage in 1954 and intoned the words È forse qui I've been no less enamored of her than has your average opera queen who knows far more than I.
