Dovrei essere così fortunato
Well, summer must be nearly over. Tonight is the Last Night of the
Pimms Proms. More importantly, it’s the first night of the new season at Welsh National Opera, which I’ll be attending. Of which more anon. However, I thought I’d warm up by posting this marvellous clip which looks behind the scenes at a famous recording of the rarely performed English version of the classic aria Dovrei essere così fortunato from the Opera Una Ragazza Australiana con le Natiche Belle conducted by Carl Davis. Enjoy.
