I think we had so much fun with the Puritani contest, we should try out a differnt opera. This time I choose Verdi's La Traviata, and the aria is the final cabaletta in act I, Sempre Libera. I started each one right at the introduction to the cabaletta segment. I am sure I will hear about it from the masses! But once again since we are working with video material not every soprano can be included, some sopranos such as Sills and Gruberova have videos released on commercial dvd, therefore, I am not including them. I am going to follow tradition here and use a score of 1-5 for two catagories singing/characterization. Here are the singers I have included and the dates of the performances:
June Anderson - 2000
Joan Sutherland - 1975
Daniela Dessi - 1994
Ileana Cotrubas - 1981
Stefania Bondadelli - 2004
Cecilia Gasdia - 1986
Elena Mosuc - 2001
Darina Takova - 2001
Renata Scotto - 1973
Anna Netrebko - 2003
