Fausta Truffa, the old lady who sings Verdi with more joy than singers half her age

Soprano Fausta Truffa took centre stage during a performance of music from Verdi’s La forza del destino.

A quick Google search doesn’t tell us Truffa’s exact age (and it’d be rude to reveal it, obviously), but suffice is to say that she’s in utterly splendid voice for a woman of her vintage.

Young singers: this video will give you unbelievable life goals.

Truffa sings ‘La Vergine degli angeli’ from the opera, an aria which describes the beauty of the virgin of the angels and her protecting powers. 


The video of this totally inspiring performance has already been viewed nearly a million times. Just think about how many singers she’s inspiring now.
