    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toi9sp4nBmo Suicidio is my favorite soprano aria because it is one of the few soprano arias that can show off a good low or chest voice in a soprano. Plus it is so dramatic. Maria Callas singing it is the most famous, but I really love late Tebaldi singing it as she does here. I also love Ponselle and Milanov. Sharon Maxwell - Yamamoto is notable for taking an optional low F at the end that is startling! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Jbg...&index=23&t=0s

    John Steane does a mini-comparison of seven singers' recordings of the aria in his book The Grand Tradition. They are Bonisegna, Destinn. Austral, Ponselle, Milanov, Cerquetti and Callas. All, as he notes, have exceptionally fine voices well-suited to the role, but the two performances he considers stand head and shoulders above the rest are Callas and Ponselle, the singers who most fulfil the demands of the aria, both musical and dramatic.
    "It's not enough to have a beautiful voice." Maria Callas
