la primadonna assoluta

The renowned soprano Jessye Norman, who over the course of her career has worked with classical music’s biggest names, such as Herbert von Karajan and Sir Georg Solti, and has been awarded no less than five Grammys, celebrated a spectacular performance at the Crystal Dome. She sang the final aria, “Thy hand, Belinda”, from Henry Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas. A separate Chamber of Wonder was dedicated to this moving performance.

A giant natural mountain crystal from Madagascar, impressive in its archaic grandeur, provided the counterpoint to the man-made art form of music and voice. With a touch of the crystal it can be determined that it is not at all cold but that the pure, concentrated energy of this enormous natural crystal radiates a subtle warmth.
