    I would say it is almost impossible not to like these two duets sung by Anna Netrebko and Elina Garanca. However, as someone said, these are concert recordings and therefore lack the framework of opera on stage. An Opera lover does need that to connect to the music and performance by singers but feel that beginners need the scenic atmosphere to be embraced by opera music.

    OK. you've posted prolifically here and some of your choices are good. Fine as it may be, I have to ask what it is about this section of opera that would attract a newcomer. It is uniformly slow and dirge-like, and there's nothing that would reach out and grab most pop-infused newbies with short attention spans. It would be a long 5 minutes for them.
