OPERA, ANYONE?


A
flawless recording!

One of Gaetano Donizetti’s best operas, full of beautiful melodies, but very taxing roles is La Fille du Regiment (The Daughter of the Regiment). I am so lucky to have a 33-1/3 album and VHS stage performance, and wish to add a CD recording, as well.

With Dame Joan Sutherland as Marie and Luciano Pavarotti as Tonio, it’s pure revelation. Dame Joan Sutherland is a riot;
she is so fun to listen to. She meets all the challenges of this opera work of Donizetti; great voice, perfect, enjoyable trill, high notes, roulades, etc. Her voice matches the superb role. It’s pure magic, delightful, sensational, and captivating. Luciano Pavarotti is a perfect Tonio, unquestionably, the king of the high Cs.

As an avid opera lover, I believe this comic opera should be produced more often in all the big opera houses of the world.
