September 1Joyce DiDonato «Stella di Napoli»by Warner Classics
On «Stella di Napoli» (Star of Naples) the American mezzo-soprano breathes new life into little-known arias by Mercadante, Michele Carafa, Carlo Valentini and the opera composer Giovanni Pacini, whose «Stella di Napoli» gives the album its title. Also Joyce presents a sumptuous Bel Canto banquet with music by Bellini, Rossini and Donizetti, including «Maria Stuarda».

Opera Challenge

Hi, everyone! Today I’m gonna do the so-called «30 day opera challenge»! I know, I’m A BIT late to the party but I have a very good excuse - I wasn’t a blogger those days:). Many opera fans took part in it and I’d love to be integrated into this opera community as well! But I’m not gonna do it for 30 days, I’ll make one post with all my answers:). To be honest, it was hard to choose one answer in each category but rules are rules. I’ve got this kind of challenge from the blog «Prima la musica».

Prague: the city of music

Hello!!! I’ve been away from the opera world for a while cause I’ve had the greatest vacations in Prague!!! Prague is very beautiful, charming and mystical. The more I walked there, the more I fell in love with this place! It was so hard to leave it that I dropped few coins in Vltava to come back someday:). I guess one of the main reasons of my affection is the incredible atmosphere of music that exists there.
