Franco Corelli: Voices of the Opera Series

Ah! S?, ben mio...Di quella pira
Come un bel d? di maggio
La fleur que tu m'avais jet?e
La vita ? inferno all'infelice...O tu che in seno agli angeli
Nessun dorma!
Non piangere, Li?!
Se quell guerrier io fossi!...Celeste Aida
Svanir le voci!...Meco all'altar di Venere...Me protegge
S?, fui soldato
Un d? all'azzurro spazio
Una parola sola...Or son sei mesi

Franco Corelli (8 April 1921 - 29 October 2003) was an Italian tenor who had a major international opera career between 1951 and 1976. Associated in particular with the spinto and dramatic tenor roles of the Italian repertory, he was celebrated universally for his thrilling upper register. Dubbed the "Prince of tenors", Corelli possessed handsome features and a charismatic stage presence which endeared him to audiences. He had a long and fruitful partnership with the Metropolitan Opera in New York City between 1961-1975. He also appeared on the stages of most of the major opera houses in Europe and with opera companies throughout North America. As in the previous volumes in this series, 11 arias from Franco Corelli's signature tenor repertoire is presented with specific interpretive details noted, including melodic variants, breaths, fermatas, and all other nuances. Includes an artist biography, as well as an article about Corelli's unique artistry. In Italian and English.
