Today I have been listening to Verdi's I due Foscari.



A splendid recording of one of Verdi's more interesting galley operas.

I think this thread is a wonderful idea! :)

And though I am by no means an opera buff, this recording of Verdi's I Due Foscari is actually one of the first opera recordings I ever bought after attending a live performance as a teenager.

ComposerOfAvantGarde:
Ha, this thread popped up at a rather appropriate time as I'm having a bit of an opera phase right now.

Last night, a favourite of mine and a brilliant production



Very funny and very moving
