  • Bianca Castafiore

    you call that singing???? *I* sang this so much better. i could sing the countess, susanna, marcellina, barbarina and cherubino all by myself in the same performance. and better than all these ullulating cows… just ask captain haddock.

  • I had never heard Resnik sing Mozart. Thanks Cieca for the treat.

  • i heard nothing but guys talking hungarian….oh well, here is our version

    • Sweetheart, act one os over and for some reason they are going on and on and on and on instead pf playing act 2.

    • John L

  • viper

    As if La Cieca weren’t enough of a sage and a delight in every way… Thanks so much for this tip! This broadcast is totally counteracting the miserable weather and giving me something lovely to do without having to venture out. I wouldn’t have known about it if I hadn’t seen your post. You rock.

  • Krunoslav

    Of course, one pities those woebegone audiences that had to deal with Impossible, Hideous Elephants like Gueden, della Casa and Miller onstage because Dancin’ Danielle had not yet burst upon the scene.

  • Often admonished

    Within the context of this cast Resnik is perfectly placed as Marcellina
