    Bellini Beatrice di Tenda.
    Only Joan Sutherland ,can make this somewhat boring drama in to bel canto from the highest standard.
    With Richard Bonynge understanding the work like no one else can, I think .

    ^^^ The brilliance of Giuseppe di Stefano highlighted in an amazing dual-role assumption!

    After all this years I still don't get the hysteria about Callas, she leaves me completely cold.

    There are always singers who leave some people cold, while having many other devotees. I think it is important to realise that this is a matter of taste, and that we should respect others' tastes however bewildering we find them. This is the way this forum has operated in the past and I would like it to continue this way.

    On a similar note, I think it's worth considering/critiquing the way the classical music industry (like the music industry in general) continually remasters, repackages, and recycles its catalog. But this practice applies to pretty much the entire repertoire, not just one singer.

    It is, was and still is never my intention to hurt anyone.
    So sorry if I did upset anyone.
    Just a my humble opinion , nothing more.

    That is precisely what I mean.
    I, as a older member (in living years ) paid a lot of money for the first Cd's and it hurts me to see that re mastering is sold for almost half the original price these days .
    And Indeed witch ever artist it is.
