Operatic Style: Bergonzi & Cappuccilli

There’s been a real dearth of opera on the blog (although not in my life, given the Met broadcasts of the Ring, Dialogues, and Julius Caesar). And I know you’ve all been clamoring for it!

To remedy, here are two exemplars of Verdian style, Carlo Bergonzi and Piero Cappuccilli singing the big duet from Don Carlo. Vocal vigor, commitment to the text, and stunning voices.

 

And just to prove the that I’m not exclusively hung up on old singers, Alagna and Terfel doing that sure fire number from The Pearl Fishers, “Au fond du temple saint.”
