It was a painful experience. Baroque arias etc and then I was really sick, pain in my body. And we were sitting high up and far away in a balcony. I just remember the pain. But I am sure La Superba was simply superb. But all I wanted to be in bed and have some pain killers. She sang 5 extras so it must have been a great recital for those that were not ill.
