Letters to the Editor, Operatic Edition


Henry Holland said...

Very nice, published in the New York Times!

I love two of Respighi's operas: La Fiamma has a great potboiler plot and juicy roles for verismo-friendly tenor, soprano and mezzo voices. La Campana Sommersa has as its basis a wonderful play by Gerhard Hauptmann and there's some really incredible music by Respighi. I'd love to see a faithful production of this opera

I know La Fiamma but not the other! Must look for it.
