    In your dreams anything is possible........




    Gheorgiu's first recital release in over 6 years Homage to Callas,
    Deluxe digibook for me with many glamour photos of gracefully aging draculette. A daring duet with Callas vocal track spliced together for track 7 Carmen Habanera, I tried a couple times to hear Callas in there but hard to hear two distinct (and very different voices, 90% Gheorghiu 10% Callas?)........more info in the booklet section.

    At least when I buy a CD set I can rest assured Gheorghiu won't cancel out on me.....

    Gheorghiu looks incredible for almost 50 yrs old.......

    Got this mainly because I love Adriana Kucerova, and the production looks cute.



    Loving me some Vivaldi:

    Looking forward to Sara Mingardo in this. Can't get enough of contraltos.



    and to Marie-Christine Lemieux and Philippe Jaroussky in this:

    The project manager for this at Houston Grand Opera was Sue Elliott and she's now Director of Education at Seattle Opera. I met her & she told me about this opera. I'll do a review when I've listened to it properly.

    Schigolch entry about Nabucco at the Cabaletta thread made me pull the trigger on this version, a rare studio recording of Elena Suliotis........takes place alongside the Sinopoli version

    Callas Medea...........1958 Dallas conductor Rescigno (live) to go with Serafin studio version in complete boxset

    This is soooooo goooood! Listened to it for the first time on my way to work this morning. Warmed the cockles of my heart it did. You can't beat a bit of Boris on a freezing cold morning.
