Here’s bel canto goddess Mariella Devia in fiery form for the final cabaletta from Anna Bolena earlier this month in Palermo. (Just ignore the annoying interpolated interviste.)

    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.
