Two prize Butterflies sing ‘Un bel dì vedremo’ (One Fine Day) with a mixture of innocence and presentiment: Geraldine Farrar in sequence with other memorable extracts from the same opera (some with Caruso), and Grace Moore – who died in an air crash, aged just 48 – in the context of a varied and touching retrospective.
