    I’m not much of a Garrett fan but this reminds me of the beautiful ENO production which I saw on stage with Ciesinski and Kelly (and Catherine Zeta-Jones) and on TV with Cairns and Garrett.

    And although I’m not a fan, I can appreciate that her modest talent is shown in its best light here- plus, of course, it’s such a gorgeous song.

      Also from the same opera

  • Rowna

    His name is not mentioned often enough, IMHO, on Parterre. A glorious artists singing about a Total Eclipse! httpv//www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvQZDwgO2aQ

    Besides the Debussy piano piece, there’s this song by Faure

    • Camille

      Always have loved this mélodie so thank you so much for including it.
      Victoria de los Angeles also sings it, and in picaresque manner highly appropriate to the “bergamasque” flavor but Régine de nos cœurs is ineffably sad in that southern mediterranean way, which is all at the same time so simple, so eloquent, et si grande.

    I have really enjoyed this thread a lot and thank everyone for their respective contributions. Windycity got the one Wozzeck that I was trying to remember, alas too late at night to do so, and which is, along with the Salome reference, the most obvious.

    Not quite as obvious but timely -- as to our current production of the same work -- but readily becoming apparent if one follows the score through the first few phrases, is this scena, perhaps not the best rendition of the cavatina but serves as an example of the appropriate text:

    I wish I could find an excerpt of the scene from Bertolucci’s La luna in which opera diva Jill Clayburgh(!) sings this aria into the twinkling night. Let me go look.
