Opera Star Anita De Simone
As the wonderful Rosa in Rodney Dangerfield's "The 4th Tenor"
Anita De Simone -- a vision and a voice! -- plays the wonderful Rosa who sings opera in the
Italian countryside with her family.
Rodney Dangerfield plays Lupo, a restauranteur who
breaks glass with his high notes! Anita De Simone made her opera
with the San Diego Opera singing the role of Elvira in L'Italiana in Algeri by Rossini.
Purchase "The 4th Tenor" for laughter and song.
