tenor, aria, E lucevan


Pick your tenor; any number can play. Is it Tagliavini, Wunderlich, del Monaco, Domingo? How about your favorite tenor doing a signature aria? Caruso/Vesti la giubba; Pavorotti/ the 9 high Cs from Daughter of the Regiment; DiSefano/ The Tomb Aria from Lucia; Schipa/Una furtiva lagrima. Next, you might choose your favorite aria and suggest ten superlative tenor versions. Oh, the parlor games we opera buffs can play. And for what it is worth, here is mine- one sterling tenor and one representative aria -BUT-over 26 years. Specifically, Jussi Bjorling from 1933 until 1959 singing "E lucevan le stelle" from Act III of Tosca.
