NPR's Robert Siegel talks with author and music commentator William Berger, about the death of Franco Corelli. Corelli, who died Thursday, was an Italian opera singer who reached the height of his career in the 1960s, perhaps best known for his 365 performances at New York's Metropolitan Opera House before retiring in 1976.
