OPERA 2009 - Various

This series is very hard to disappoint, as each annual double disc of amazing modern opera voices (alive and passed on) is loaded with timeless, emotionally charged and evocative moments. The usual male suspects include Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, Franco Corelli, as well as Jonathan Lemalu, Roberto Alagna, David Daniels, Ian Bostridge, and Rolando Villazon. The superstar divas selected include the evergreen Maria Callas, Montserrat Caballe, Sarah Brightman, Kiri Te Kanawa, and Angela Gheorghiu, further expanded with works by Natalie Dessay, Deborah Voigt, Felicity Lott, Vivica Genaux, Elina Garanca, Barbara Hendricks, Birgit Nilsson and many more (the latter not to be confused with Sylvester Stallone's ex-wife).
The 40 tracks include master works from Puccini, Gershwin, Handel, Mozart, Verdi, Wagner, Vivaldi, Massenet, Berlioz, Offenbach, Stravinsky and several others.
