    can anyone name me a source from where to purchase a pirate disc of Mariella Devia performing “Beatrice di Tenda”?
    I´m a huge fan, travelled from Germany to Milan in January for her “Maria Stuarda” (she was sublime) and will attend the first performance of her “traviata” at La scala in June.

    Thanks very much in advance for any recommendation.
