It's an undescribable pity that there is no official video of "Tosca" with Jose Carreras as Mario Cavaradossi. Because SERIOUSLY. Can this be done better? And not only E lucevan le stelle but the whole portrayal as well. One has to fight back tears watching him when Tosca chatters about the "simulated execution". Geez. *shakes head* And his Vittoria! Vittoria! remains unsurpassed, I think. No one ever could make this scene so convincingly and naturally heroic, without hysteria, or unnecessary pathos, or superfluous 20-sec fermatas. Bravissimo. And this is without mentioning The Voice. Oh, The Voice. Gorgeous. And I don't even like tenors!
Не передать, как жалко, что нет ни одного официального видео "Тоски" с Каррерасом.
