Turbans & Tuxes

Never mind the turbans, the way over the top hair-do's and the stuffy tuxedos. Just listen to the singing and check out the style.

Leontyne Price with her avalanche of sound that I never get tired of. Listen to her soar over a huge orchestra, in this aria from Aegyptische Helena by Rivhard Strauss live from Carnegie Hall.

Opera Royalty such as we will never see again. Franco Corelli and Renata Tebaldi belt out the final duet from Andrea Chenier with such style and panache that just make my hairs stand on end.

Immaculate singing in this wonderful clip of the duet from Verdi's Don Carlo sung by two favourites of mine Piero Cappuccilli and Carlo Bergonzi.

My all time favourite basso aria and one of my favourite bassos, the wonderful Cesare Siepi singing Philip II from Don Carlo.
