Subject: Caballe's "Nozze" Countess

I have not read all the Caballe posts, so if this has been mentioned already please excuse.  

One of the most wonderful live performances by Caballe is her 1967 Countess in Dallas Civic 
Opera's "Nozze di Figaro."  She is just sublime in the two arias, and her recitatives and 
ensemble work are exemplary.  In "Dove sono,"  she takes the two repeats of "Di cangiar 
l'ingrato cor" in one breath, the first time forte, the second time pianissimo.  Stunning.

Here is "Porgi amor:"

And "Dove sono:"

And here's the complete performance (which is wonderful, BTW, great cast and conducting, 
and lots of energy and personality):

Caballe made her American operatic stage debut in Dallas in "Traviata."  I wonder she and 
DCO music director Nicola Rescigno had some kind of falling out, because she never 
returned to DCO after the "Nozze."
