Another soundtrack piece idea. It features a middle section with a re-arrangement of Vincenzo Bellini's classic piece from the "Norma" opera, "Casta Diva." The concept is that the heroine of the story, from her days as a goofy little girl, acquires a love for both ballet and opera (contrasted with her sleeping, crying, and general infant disinterest common to all babies at first), and tries to become a singer and a dancer at the time, but decides she only has talent for singing. The name combines the first name of the first singer of "Norma," Giuditta Pasta, with the last name of the Swedish/Italian ballet dancer Marie Taglioni. The heroine is Italian-American!!
The piece perfectly represents the joy and silliness of watching a goofy young girl trying, failing, and succeeding at doing beautiful things. Case in point: the score features parts of the voice chart, unassigned to lyrics by either me, Bellini or Romani, with gibberish lyrics, demonstrating that she could sing gibberish staccato lyrics in note-perfection, so she could goof off just as she could sing beautifully, and with beautiful intent.
