    Thank you, coloraturafan, for yet another fantastic compilation. Maria should have changed her name to Mary Macbeth. Sass saddens me: that Sprechstimme-from-the-grave is so ugly, but not in a good way. Urmana gets full points for text clarity. Verrett and Cappuccilli in this performance: what can one say except: “Viva Verdi!” and “Grande Abbado!”

    As to a Meyerbeer compilation: pretty please if you find the time. It is true La Cieca does not like him, but she would not deprive us of the pleasure, I’m sure.

    Also: zinka’s right about Marisa Galvany. What a meaty voice! Very satisfying.

    actually, i have been reading about these star-studded casts that some of us think would finally get Gli Ugonotti the recognition it deserves, but i haven’t seen any actual lists here. maybe some of the parterriani would step up to the challenge, and chalk out such a cast list (with singers who are still performing)?
