Maralin Niska RIP

It is with enormous sadness that I'm posting these few MARALIN NISKA performance images. Sadly Maralin passed away the night of July 8th.  She was a powerhouse on stage, dedicated to her craft, generous in sharing her knowledge and a treasured friend. It's impossible to scan everything. There isn't enough time. These are but a few memorable moments.  First the iconic Elena Makropolus, Act I, NYC Opera.  1970
FANCIULLA DEL WEST, Minnie with Ermano Mauro as Johnson, end Act II, 1977
Marguerita in FAUST, final scene, 1969
BOHEME at the Met 1973 with Corelli in the background as Rodolfo
BUTTERFLY, Act II with Christopher Lee as her child
MANON LESCAUT, Act II  1974 with Michele Molese as DesGrieux
MEDEA  1974
SALOME and head, Mar. 21, 1975
TOSCA at the Met, Sept. 1974 with Peter Glossop as Scarpia
TURN OF THE SCREW, April 1971, the Governess with Robert Puleo as Miles
                                                        VOIX HUMAINE   April 1977
Always wonderful, inspiring.  Dear Maralin, RIP.
