We start with Kalman ~ the Gypsy Princess. I’m trying hard to embrace opera. It seems like the cultual thing to do. But this album, after three songs was a jump on the needle and make it stop. So it’s a rethrift. I had much better luck with the other two opera features. Gilbert and Sulivan’s The Mikado is a treat. The album cover and package itself are informative and fun and the two albums and enclosed mint condition booklet were helpful. This opera ~ I Loved! What’s your fav opera? Third album, a classic Pavorotti album, that I know my Nana loved and listened to all the time ~ from 1977 O Sole Mio. The Favourite Neapolitan Songs was lovely. What can i say that is more informed than that? I’m hoping my record blog Pav follower will give us a tid bit?

  1. The album “O Sole Mio” by Pavarotti isn’t opera but and opera singer singing Neapolitan songs like an opera singer. The orchestrations are big as Pavarotti’s voice and may not be like the Neapolitans sang it. I guess these songs were performed with more modest orchestrations or just by the singer playing his guitar whilst singing. Anyhow, “O Sole Mio” is one of Pavarotti’s most popular albums ever. And it will continue to be so until forever.
