Bel canto spectacular by Juan Diego Flórez( )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in Italian and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bel Canto (vakker sang) er et italiensk begrep som refererer til kunsten og teorien bak sangteknikk. Begrepet oppstod i Italia i løpet av slutten på 1500-tallet og nådde sitt høydepunktet tidlig på 1800-tallet. Rossini, Bellini og Donizetti er de mest kjente eksponentene for denne stilarten, og her gjør den peruanske tenoren Juan Diego Flórez arier av akkurat disse tre komponistene fra denne gullalderen. Gjestesangere på albumet er Anna Netrebko, Mariusz Kwiecien, Patrizia Ciofi, Daniela Barcellona og Plácido Domingo

Leading this opera for the first time at the Met, the renowned maestro demonstrates that his gifts suit Donizetti as perfectly as they do Wagner

The delectable Anna Netrebko is Norina, the "biddable" girl who agrees to a mock marriage with Don Pasquale (Simone Alaimo) in order to teach him a lesson, and clear the way to marry her true love, heartthrob Juan Diego Flórez (Ernesto). Mariusz Kwiecien is Dr. Malatesta who masterminds the whole plot

It takes the clever scheming of Dr. Malatesta (Mariusz Kwiecien) to set things right and to teach the old curmudgeon a lesson--fits of temper, mistaken identities, and all kinds of comic confusion included
