Hello all:

For those interested in watching a clip of this aria, I posted it several months ago in my YouTube page. (  It is from the La Scala telecast of the opera with Barbara Fritolli. Here is the link:

While you are at it, if you are interested, I have also several more operatic excerpts for your enjoyment:

Patricia Wise singing Nanneta's aria
Boheme Excerpts from Sydney (not the one with Hobson)
Faust from Philly with Alain Vanzo, James Morris and Valerie Masterson
Lella Curbelly as Contessa Almaviva
Soile Isokoski singing the 4 last songs
Mad Scene from Lucia di lammermoor with Mariela Devia
Ballo in Maschera excepts with Angela Brown and Ludovic Tetzier
Final Scene from Dialogues of the Carmelites from the Met telecast

It is all there for your enjoyment.

Bergitas here. 

I noted with interest the Suor Angelica review in the
latest Opera News (I believe Radvanovksy was the
soprano) which mentioned the inclusion of a brief aria
restored to the score which Puccini removed shortly
before the opera's world premiere.  This was news to
me, and I own several Suor Angelica recordings and
love this opera a lot.  Is the restored aria heard on
any commercial recordings?  How about pirates?   I
would love to hear this for myself.
