    Sorry, no gentlemen in this one. Florestan, if you have the video of the Salzburg Festival Fidelio with Adrianne Pieczonka and JK, you've heard Olga Beszmertna -- she sings Marzelline.

    This is the recording of Alcina I have. It may be historically "uninformed," but I love Wunderlich's manly Ruggiero. Makes one understand why the lady doesn't want to let him go.

    Possibly Angela Gheorghiu, though some will consider her lyric soprano too light for the role. Anja Harteros has received rave reviews for her Tosca, and I'd love to hear Anna Netrebko in the part.
