Magda Olivero lives in Milan, not far away from la Scala.
She, as we know, turned 100-years-old on March 25th, and was honored on Saturday night in Torino for her long career (which began in 1932 on the radio), at a sweet birthday party organized and hosted by Teatro Regio. She will soon be presented with honorary citizenship to the city (she was born not far away from Turin, in the region of Piedmont).
Although Torino's Regio has only a fraction of the funding that La Scala flaunts and wasn't exactly the opera theater in which la Magda sang at through much of her career (that instead was done at La Scala), Teatro Regio di Torino did the right thing and celebrated the soprano with a huge turnout. That's the textbook definition of a class act.
