    Ha! I certainly agree with you here! What actually gave her the moniker La Stupenda?

    Of cause I don't agree, but I count my blessings with the recordings of the most wonderful voice of last century.

    Aaaah I am loving this. First time listening to it.



    I think I have found a gateway into 19th century operas in Italian finally! I love Bellini!

    Before reading the synopsis, this album cover made me think it was an opera about lesbians. I now know one of them is supposed to be a young man. She sure does not look the part though.

    That'd make an interesting and rather appropriate twist on the Romeo and Juliet story considering current changes happening around the world regarding same sex marriage! Do you know Wuorinen's opera Brokeback Mountain?

    Sutherland had simply atrocious diction. On the other hand she had spectacularly agile coloratura.
    I do see her greatness and I do have some of her recordings which I like. I wouldn't exactly call her one of my favorites, though.

    Interesting idea for a Regie version. I wonder why nobody has thought of it yet. Maybe there is a performance somewhere that tried this twist.

    I also like the Antonini/Bartoli interpretation of Norma. Like other members have stated it is a little different from others but I think this is good. However this is one of those operas which I still have an outstanding (damn, I'm using that word again) favourite that comes from La Scala 7 December 1955

    (Same performance as Myto recording posted by Festat but I had to go for the Pristine Audio version remastered by Andrew Rose)

    After a rather wet finish (in more sense than one) to the cricket, I'm back to the world of opera

    it seems to be a Vivaldi week

    Vivaldi: La Verità in cimento
    Nathalie Stutzmann, Gemma Bertagnoli, Sara Mingardo, Guillemette Laurens, Philippe Jaroussky, Anthony Rolfe Johnson
    Ensemble Matheus, Jean-Christophe Spinosi

    I'm seen her in only Norma, Anna Bolena, La fille du régiment and her finale performance (can't remember the name of that opera).. Oh and I have listened to her Rigoletto recording with Pavarotti... all in all I really like her, but yeah we all like different things

    Not interested, but the thought being that the cover was not accurate and one would hope she looked more like a young man in the actual opera.

    That's debatable.

    Doesn't the title alone tell you it is not a lesbian love story? I wish it was, though.
