New York — Inside her Manhattan apartment a block away from Carnegie Hall, mezzo-soprano Regina Resnik sits surrounded by art. Paintings adorn every wall, a silk screen stands in the corner of the living room, and sculptures line the mantel. All of the oils, lithographs, sculptures and drawings on display were created by Resnik’s late husband, Arbit Blatas, and of the subjects the artist chose for his work, one is overwhelmingly represented: Kurt Weill’s “Threepenny Opera.”
