The other BEL canto roles she sing, like Norma and Anna Bolena are not for her. - Paolo Ferraro 4 years ago Salvatore Fisichella was one of the greatest bel canto tenors of the 1980's & 90's. He substituted for Pav, who could no longer cut it, at the Met in I Puritani & was very well received. But the (supposed) "Big" 3 could not face the stiff competition & made certain that he was not re-hired. A damned shame! - Ferdia Riordan 1 month ago (edited) Fabulous-one of the best I Puritani's I have seen.

Very theatrical, beautiful and authentic set and costumes, and the most emblematic Don you could wish for. Leporelo also shines here as a comic relief. Impecable and inspired performance musicwise. - KASH10043 4 years ago I love the opera Don Giovanni and have listened and watched to so many that I've lost count. But this one still ranks as one of my favorites as far as the quality of the singing. Cesare Siepi's voice is so deep, rich and glorious. And Elisabeth Grummer (Donna Anna) is just breath taking in it's beauty and clarity. The entire cast is still a joy to listen to after 61 years - Aetion 3 months ago Cesare Siepi in his signature role under the baton of one of the greatest conductors of all times. Excellent job!

Wiener Philharmoniker and Wiener Staatsopernchor Conductor Karl Böhm 1972 - mich sturge 2 years ago GREATEST FLEDERMAUS EVER!!! Case closed.....the casting of WIndgassen as Orlofsky was a masterstroke!!! - arr1on 9 months ago I recorded this on videotape in the 1970s, and when I was at university (late 70s-early 80s), it was the basis for many an opera party! We all ogled Anna Moffo (who was the host of the PBS airing), drank vodka shots whenever they drank vodka shots, and drank champagne whenever they drank champagne. Our goal was...to see if we could all stay awake until the very end! Of course, we also had chicken on the grill, and usually burned our fingers, trying to pick up the pieces. Fun times, with good friends, and this video holds a very important honor, in my memories. Thanks for sharing. - Figaro Qua 1 year ago Never get tired of this work. Great to hear Bohm and the Vienna Phil provide such crisp music. And not surprising for a cast with many Wagnerians there is an intensity and seriousness in the humour. Thanks for posting. - Rutherford Fan 5 years ago Thank you so much. So much of the success is due to Otto Schenk's direction and it is something to see Böhm conduct Johann Strauss. I liked them all but most of all, Gundula Janowitz and Erich Kunz. Vocally, I would have preferred either Hermann Prey or Nicolai Gedda as Eisenstein but it is a small point.

Les Huguenots - Meyerbeer (English subtitles) 128,937 views•Apr 20, 2015
Les Huguenots - Meyerbeer (English subtitles) 128,937 views•Apr 20, 2015 - Bartholomew Smutz 8.59K subscribers Les Huguenots (French pronunciation: [le ˈyg(ə)no]) is a French opera by Giacomo Meyerbeer, one of the most popular and spectacular examples of the style of grand opera. In five acts, to a libretto by Eugène Scribe and Émile Deschamps, it premiered in Paris in 1836. The story culminates in the historical St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre in 1572 in which thousands of French Huguenots (Protestants) were slaughtered by Catholics in an effort to rid France of Protestant influence. Although the massacre was a historical event, the rest of the action, which primarily concerns the love between the Catholic Valentine and the Protestant Raoul, is wholly a creation of Scribe. - abd0987 2 years ago (edited) I love Meyerbeer. His best works seem to be so grand (and long) that they are an achievement to produce. I am very grateful for this subtitled video and the efforts of the Bonynges to bring this to the stage and have it filmed back when opera on video was not as easy to obtain as it is now. I particularly liked the mezzos in this recording. Dame Joan was at retirement age and brought what she had left to the show - a fine offering. I sort of wished for a more dynamic Raoul, but it was all good enough to help us understand this brilliant music better. Thank you for posting it on youTube. - Alex de Ravin 4 years ago i was at Joan Sutherland's Farewell - the last night of the Australian Opera's 'Les Huguenots' on 2nd Oct 1990 - a very emotional evening for me - i first saw Dame Joan in 'Lucia' in 1972 or 1973 at Covent garden when the soprano was in great great form - a never-to-be-forgotten experience. the mad scene had everyone in the audience mad with excitement! Dame Joan did in fact sing one last time after this at Covent Garden - at a gala performance of Die Fledermaus on New Year's Eve, 1990, at Covent Garden, where she was accompanied by her colleagues Luciano Pavarotti and the mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne. - -

Vickers worried that a distinguished colleague would get wind of this he protested to Karajan who replied that he drove a Rolls Royce but that did not mean that he despised a Mercedes! For him, Vickers was Canio. Has it ever been done better? Hard to imagine. Peter Glossop, an English baritone, unknown until then to Karajan, was also excellent. - Leo Smart 4 years ago Wow!!!

I think the mise en scène would probably be better appreciated when it comes to you in the theatre. By the way, the orchestra is fabulous, with a clear, transparent sound, compliments to Maestro Muti for that. Complete performance in line with the Paris adaptation. The chorus that opens Act 4 is one of the best performances I heard of this. Respect for the singers, but above all for maestro Verdi!! - libertango 3 months ago It's the first time I listen to Macbeth. I know Shakespeare's story, but the lack of subtitles and overall dark images didn't help. I love Bruson, and I could only understand his words when singing.I mostly listened to the music. It's beautiful, and what sad story, as power always corrupt people. - Atli Guðmundsson 3 years ago Bruson is wonderful. Why is Maria portraying Lady Macbeth with no poise - she acts more like the wife of dracula. She grits her teeth like she's ready to sink them into Macbeth's neck during the banquet. Strong woman, yes, but with some class and poise, please. Maybe she's showing her character as blood thirsty. Oh well, still a wonderful performance for all, even though Muti's tempi sometimes sound like he wants to be sure not to miss a train.......they're fast, but effective, at least for me. - foropera 1 year ago It is very strange that a singer of the caliber (and young at that time) of Guleghina has a problem to sing a high C in pitch...The 3 ones I have heard here are low. But she manages to makes the D flat well! - Roger Turner 5 months ago A good listen, but completely unwatchable. Where is this? A modernistic department store? Is Lady Macbeth a complete maniac by the look of her? Good music ruined by a totally alien and unsympathetic set - as usual. - EDWARD DE RISEIS 3 years ago Great Guleghina! Perhaps the best Lady Macbeth then ever....really better than Callas in this role! She has bewitched me: she's really the Devil, just as Verdi wanted! Applause!

Director:Riccardo Muti Teatro alla Scala 1989 - Loek van der Heide 1 year ago (edited) A beautyfull registration, though, I'm missing the attaque accents used by maestro Muti, combined with the quick tempi.... Critic on male (tenor)-singers using their falsetto in pp decrescendi in the messa-di-voce and decrescendi onto topnotes I do'nt agree....The fact that some audience do'nt hear some passagio's forenamed, has to do with: the enormous content of opera 'halls', volume of orchestras, mensure of brasswind and tuning of orchestra's om a' 440 Hz and even higher. Another problem is, that singers don't hear themselves, and the need so, of headset-microphone's on the stage together with stage monitor loudspeakers...... The volume.... causing problems with both, voice detoriation and hearing problems.... So the need of hearing therapy as determined by Alfred A. Tomatis..

Zancanaro, Furanetto and Merrit are all just amazing under Muti's hand. - ваня манин 1 year ago Studer is like, and tenor almost criminal :( - Quotenwagnerianer 1 year ago (edited) Kind of odd to have the full ballet in there but instead of using the original french text singing the italian translation. And I have seen quite a few productions from Italy to check the ending and I notice that quite a few of them ignore that the libretto clearly states that the italians gang up on all of the main characters at the end and kill them all not just Montfort.

But who ever is responsible for the costumes should retire. What the hell is the fortune teller, Ulrica, supposed to be.....a porcupine? And the masked ball - give me a break! Great singing though. - vdesuit1 1 year ago There's today a sort of mania for stage directors to think that during the overture you should have actors on the stage before the curtain. Why? No one can answer because there are no answers to such stupid habit! Those stage directors should be reminded the great Louis Jouvet french stage director's advice to his students: "If a gesture, a movement, an element of the sets, even a tone in the voice of the actor, doesn't enhances the action then it is superfluous, it is a scoria and should be eliminated.
Here we face this problem. What are doing those guys on the stage during the overture? Does it bring anything to the understanding of the action to come? Absolutely none! SO OUT you go!
As for the horrible sets and monstrous costumes the stage designer and costume designer should be reminded that this opera is based on a real event:
Antonio Somma's libretto is inspired by the five act libretto which playwright Eugène Scribe had written for Daniel Auber's 1833 opera, "Gustave III, ou Le bal masqué".]
Scribe wrote about the assassination in 1792 of King Gustav III of Sweden who was killed as the result of a political conspiracy against him. He was shot while attending a masked ballroom dance and died 13 days later of his wounds.
So perhaps if one decides to use period sets and costumes should it be in accordance with the time the action is set by the libretto and not such incredible disgusting presentation! -
Puccini TURANDOT Dimitrova,Domingo,Ricciarelli Maazel 1983 Scala sub español(leonora43)
Director: Lorin Maazel Producción: Franco Zeffirelli Teatro alla Scala 1983 - Shahrdad 3 years ago When she and Domingo sing together, it sounds like her voice is about three times bigger than his. -Seán Duncan 1 month ago "...la sua fresca VO-CE!" Oh the awesome power, the beauty, the resonance! La Dimitrova reigned supreme in this role and she KNEW it! Mme Ricciarelli as Liu is just heart-wrenchingly beautiful and they both counterbalance each other in strength and vulnerability. Not my favourite interpretation by Placido Domingo but undoubtedly a virile, tempestuous prince. reckless enought to risk his life for a passion beyond his comprehension. Great staging! - marcelle herma pesek 2 years ago Thank you for sharing this magnificent production with us. To my shame, I must admit that I had only heard the best known arias up until now, and I was determined to see the entire opera at last. (I'm a balletomane, but appreciate opera very much, also). For some odd reason, I could not upload it for 2 days! I began to wonder... I do not know techniques of singing, to me they sounded marvelous. And the La Scala audience is not that easily impressed. When I found out the plot, I was horrified because I abhor cruelty. So now I knew, but I was thoroughly fascinated and wanted to know the outcome. What bewitching obsession possessed Calaf to be willing to have his father and his slave and the entire village (or city) tortured to find out his name? What kind of unbelievable hatred and vengeance which lasts through generations can make people so blind and willing to punish innocent lives including their own citizens? Romeo and Julie and so many others - will Calaf and Turandot "live happily ever after"? He watches Liu get tortured, yet desires T. so much that he lets it happen. Liu's spirit won't look for retribution; she was too good. SHE was the "pure" one. But there is a higher justice which waits for all of us. A most incredibly gripping drama, music inspired by the muses. I felt totally drained at the end but a great work about love, history and humanity and our frailties can do just that. No doubt he was a very impressive, intelligent and heroic figure in his own way, as was Turandot a tragic figure in hers. Sorry about the long commentary.Please don't answer with hate comments. This is just one person's perception. Thank you. May they all rest in peace. - AstriaICOW 3 years ago thanks for uploading this, the audio sounds better than the one I've found before - ASSOCIAZIONE CULTURALE 5 days ago (edited) The best TURANDOT ever heard !!!
