Melba's A Peach

ninme found something tres cool: the Paris Opera opened a time capsule yesterday and played recordings of Nellie Melba & Enrique Caruso. Links to sound clips at her place --go have a listen-- and she comments:
Just think, they did this when Madama Butterfly was a brand new opera, and Turandot was still 20 years away.
As bonus, learn about Peach Melba and Aussie Christmas traditions in comments.
