Casta Diva & Oblomov

Casta Diva (Maria Callas)

Renée Fleming: Casta Diva (Bellini)

Interesting how "Casta Diva" functions as the περιπέτεια, the dramatic turn of events in Oblomov's life. He and Stolz are involved in a poetic musing about 'how it is to be married' and all of a sudden Stolz remembers Olga Sergeevna Ilinskaya, who is able to sing "Casta Diva". This is how she is introduced into the story plot by Goncharov.
