For those who want to know what I gave myself for Christmas, it’s quite simple. No, it wasn’t Dmitri Hvorostovsky. I did give myself the DVD of the Red Square concert. Unfortunately, like everything else this Christmas, my DVD is sitting in the post office, waiting for me to get a chance to go pick it up, or get decent weather to make the trip down to Glencoe to get it.
Let’s face it, I’m a Tosca junkie.
Arguably the greatest version of my very favorite opera was filmed by Sherrill Milnes, Placido Domingo, and Raina Kabaivanska on location, there in Italy. It is also costume appropriate.
