    The FIFA World Cup is underway. Disappointing opening ceremony, with little to do with Russia's strong culture. Aida Garifullina didn't even look as good as she usually does, and was relegated to...

    I'm a member of the dislike group, for two reasons. 1) No sopranos. 2) No mezzo-sopranos.
  4. Opera Stars Open the FIFA World Cup

    Wow, the opening ceremony for the FIFA World Cup this week will feature a lot of opera. According to the organizers, it is fitting that opera starts open the World Cup, because opera is universal...

    Mark Abel kindly let me know that they did a short film with soprano Hila Plitmann, on "Those Who Loved Medusa." It is interesting and well done, featuring an impressive dramatic performance by Hila....

    Not only. Aix-en-Provence got it right too. I love the Glyndebourne DVD but I still think that the Aix Cosě was the best I've ever seen. And of course, not only the stage direction was outstanding,...

    Lookist, LOL! Well, it is unfair, but I think the lookist thing hits the ladies more than the gentlemen... Ramón Vargas for example is not a looker and is quite successful. A voice this good should...

    I know, but it was not exactly for her musical skills and discretion of movements that I was fixated on her. It was because of her other cough cough assets cough cough. :adoration:

    You must be thrilled that a New Zealander is so good! Do you know of his schedule plans? Is he coming to the Met anytime soon, or another American house?
  12. Yes, I thought the same thing... and I was also...

    Yes, I thought the same thing... and I was also fixated on the female violinist, LOL. But my point is, he is less bad with this repertory, at least it is not as offensive as when he is trying to sing...

    Yes, I was showing his clips to my wife today and she said "he sounds like Pavarotti." We've seen young tenors being called the next Pavarotti, but finally it seems like we are getting a real one....

    I can't stop listening. I'm blown away. This is simply perfection. This guy, so young, is likely to be already among the very best opera singers currently in activity. So elegant! So efortless!

    This is quite extraordinary. I'm upgrading to the last 20 years... What a singer!

    This is the lovely way he publicly proposed to his (then) girlfriend (now wife), soprano Amina Edris:

  19. Andrea Bocelli when not singing opera

    We true opera lovers often express indignation when Andrea Bocelli sells himself as an opera singer, which he is not.

    On the other hand, when singing popular songs that do not require classical...

    Aurelia Florian

    Just when I said that Marina Rebeka was one of the best Violettas of recent memory, I heard a better one. Aurelia Florian may be even better than Angela Gheorghiu, and comparable to the great ones of...
