(singing in foreign language) (door knocking) (singing in foreign language) - Yes, Come in.
(door knocking) Come in!
(converses in a foreign language) - Good luck, good luck.
(converses in foreign language) Do not kill me, not kill me with that voice!
(converses in foreign language) - You are Nilsson, you are Nilsson.
- No, no, no, no, you are Raimondi.
- The first time that we really met she was going to sing the matinee of Tosca, at the Metropolitan Opera.
And it was supposed to sing Franco Corelli, and Mr. Bing called me, urgently, and he asked me if I could sing the matinee of Tosca, and so he give me the news that it was with Birgit.
so you can imagine (chuckles) the great, emotional day for me.
How can I describe, you know, to be near such a monumental artist, with a big, big voice and I immediately found out her sense of humor that she had, and how much she was treating me, she was mothering me, like saying, 'Don't worry', you know, I'm there to help you, I'm with you' and so everything went beautiful.
