    A rather underrated opera: I masnadieri has an epic "mad scene" for the baritone and a duet with a very unfriendly bass priest who pretty much tells him he's beyond salvation because he's so EvilTM. I feel like Verdi was channeling the Commendatore Scene a little bit.



    Aka the opera that made me fall in love with Artur Ruciński.

    One of my favourites when it comes to King Philip, Sarastro and Leporello.
    Thank you for introducing Lazslo Polgar - I confess I had never heard of him until now. A glorious voice

    Here's the Restate too from this production (with Lajos Miller, another excellent Hungarian singer)

    If anyone has seen & heard a better Escamillo I would love to experience it!



    This is the best version I've ever seen...

    Sorry, Bonetan, Carmen has never really grabbed me, maybe someday.... BUT thank you for reminding me of this thread!

    I ADORE the trio "Lasciala, indegno!" from Don Giovanni! I own several recordings, but my favorite isn't on YouTube. Maybe I will upload it; I was listening to it in the car this evening. It is a fabulous, gorgeous, melting trio of my favorite male voices.

    The shellacs really DO NOT GET IT! This will not do! I will upload my favorite.

    We're getting closer.....




    Thank you, God, for the male voice!!!

    I am growing each and every day to love Daniel Barenboim's musical sensibility.

    That's quite alright! I'm not a big fan of Carmen either & I've completely given up on trying to enjoy Mozart. But I'm glad we feel the same way about Wagner!

    We can't see his characterization! Is this live on stage? Does he move & look the part like Ramey? The voice is obviously incredible, but that's only 1 ingredient of a great Toreador

    This is unacceptable, My Friend! Not for anyone's sake but yours. The pool cover comes off 21 May! I am going to send you a PM and we will make arrangements for you to come to central PA and enjoy the water, the wildlife and Mozart's music.
