Dear Commons Community,
The New York Times has set up a website where you can listen to some of the most talented sopranos singing arias from classical music. You can listen to the voices of Maria Callas, Jessye Norman, Leontyne Price, Renée Fleming, Deborah Voight and others. The pieces were chosen by fellow artists, composers and music critics “to make their friends fall in love with the soprano voice.” The website features sixteen selections, all of which are approximately five minutes in length. Below is a sample with Renee Fleming singing “Dove sono” from Mozart’s “Le Nozze di Figaro.”
Enjoy, Enjoy! Enjoy!
