The World's most beautfiul music: Puccini, La Rondine

>> Sunday, February 10, 2008

I first heard this aria on a recording with Beverly Sills, and instantly fell in love with it. Although Puccini operas aren't my favorites as a whole, (I don't really get into the stories he chose), some of the most beautiful arias ever come from them. This particular aria is from his opera, La Rondine, and is entitled "Ch 'il bel sogno di Doretta", and the recording features Soprano Angela Gheorghiu in all her magnificent glory, literally floating on her magical high C's and lulling her audience into Doretta's dreamworld.

You'll be as enchanted as I was.
