7. Glorious Tone

The Great Soprano
Bidu Sayão

This post is part of the 12-part series, Opera’s Most Beautiful Moments. If you haven’t read the introductory post to the series, click here!

          This section is rather self-explanatory. We have spoken much before on how the falsetto/head voice is the correct basis for all voices. Here, you can see the brightness, expressiveness, and extreme beauty of tone that results from this ideal of training.

If you haven’t downloaded spotify yet (it is free, has a ton of music, and pays the artists from advertisements that listeners view), click here!

Open this playlist in spotify, here.


            The exact clips I prepared for the recordings I list here are Manon: Monsieur – 1:39-2:39, La Vergine Degli Angeli – 0:46-1:26, Mamma Mia, Che Vo Sape – Whole Song, Ah! Je Ris… – 0:57-1:57, and Tra Voi Belle – 0:48-1:15.

Mamma Mia, Che Vo Sape – Mario Lanza

          This song is taken straight from the recording used in the MGM movie “That Midnight Kiss” with Mario Lanza and Kathryn Grayson. I highly recommend that you see the movie. It is extremely enjoyable.
