Not for the faint of heart



Scant days ago I was telling someone this trio is among the very highlights of the operatic literature, and here it is in all its...in all its...uh, I can't find quite the right word.

Aren't you ever so sweet for showing us this and boosting my self-confidence about my own Fiordiligi.

Wow - at least they had fun. I think this kid's Fiordiligi was probably better than anything Gruber has sung.

Manprano: I have been known to sing bits of Dorabella down an octave. (I would sing it falsetto but my falsetto is abbreviated and ugly.) All we need is an Alfonso...

Is this from the Dreamgirls DVD (deleted scenes)?

The word for that is adorrible.

FTW!

I actually can't stop watching it.

Good that they could get late-career Hans Hotter in to do the baritone part.

The one in the middle is clearly the breakaway star -- he needs to cut himself loose, find a good producer, and cut a solo album.

everytime I hear this trio I am filled with emotion... this time around I'm just not sure what the emotion is!

Well, at least I can say...when I'm bitching about how hard this is to sing...that it could always be [much] worse!
