She also did Countess Almaviva at Glyndebourne at around this time, also to 
very positive and appreciative reviews (if memory serves correctly, think 
this was reported in Opera News).

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."
