    Just listenng to Auger singing 'Exaltate Jubilate'. Not an operatic piece strictly speaking, but how beautiful it is.

    Am I the only one who sheds a tear at the late Irina Maslennikova's rendition of Snegurochka's farewell? This clip ends abruptly and before the harp, but it is worth seeing because of the vibrant colors (unlike other clips from this 1952 animated classic).



    The 1946 recording of the complete opera (bar a few cuts to the score) with Maslennikova and Lemeshev is one of my very favorites.

    One of the most haunting arias in the repertory is Yaroslavna's Lament from Prince Igor (Borodin). It's long and oh so beautiful.

    So many...but Brangane's warning in Tristan's Liebesnacht is one of the greatest moments in opera for me
