Beverly Sills

I was watching a re-run of the PBS special on Beverly Sills last night, once again impressed with what a sane, sensible, humane person Sills seems to have been.   Any successful performer must also be a hard worker, but Sills had, on top of that, the personality to get through repeated challenges without bitterness and with little wasted effort.  The interview sections, recorded at different times in her life, were interspersed with recordings of her performances...fascinating and humbling.
