"...but she talked about how the dropping of wings naturally lent itself to a glissando."

Only because there's been a thread all about this on an opera forum I follow, lol - Bernstein calls for a portamento at that point, but a glissando at the end of the first refrain (leading back into the slow section). My theory is that the portamento is more "artistic" and graceful, and the gliss is a little more raucous.

(The topic was essentially - what's the difference between the two terms.)
