Maria Stuarda

 
50% Off Everything!
 
Admittedly, I have never gravitated towards bel canto like I have towards Wagner and Strauss. However, I found this performance of Maria Stuarda as exciting as even the most exciting performances of Elektra or Salome I have seen.

Beverly Sills and Pauline Tinsley seem to inspire each other to surpass their already very high level of vocal excellence, all while maintaining an unflagging commitment to the drama.

Highly recommended!

New: Thaïs

 
With Carol Neblett
 

The role of Thaïs is an incredible vehicle for a great soprano, and many great sopranos have left their mark on it. However, Carol Neblett will probably make you forget all of your favorites who have sung this role.

Her voice is strong, yet alluring and her top is effortless. Not only that, she is remarkably successful at turning an operatic cliché (i.e. the courtesan with a heart of gold) into a fully fleshed-out and believable character.

Highly recommended!

Fanciulla with Carol Neblett
 
Having been inspired by our recent acquisition of Thaïs featuring Carol Neblett, I have decided to make this performance of La Fanciulla del West featuring Neblett as Minnie our latest free download.
 
Franco Bonisolli is Dick Johnson and Giangiacomo Guelfi is Jack Rance.

A Note To Our Customers:

Twelve years ago I started this business because of my love for live opera recordings, as well as a means to find a source of income while I pursued my career as an opera conductor. In recent years I have been very blessed to have had many exciting opportunities to work with companies like San Francisco Opera, Opera San José and the San Francisco Symphony.
 
Last fall I accepted a full-time job at Minnesota Opera. It had been my hope that I would be able to run this business in my spare time, but the demands of the job have made juggling these two lives very difficult.
 
I have made the decision that effective sometime towards the end of August I will be ceasing production of CDs. This will allow me to spend more time on remastering new titles and creating fun promotions. I appreciate that this will be bad news to many of my CD customers, and I do apologize for that. I am fully committed, however, to offer one-and-one help to get you all comfortable with the ease and convenience of being able to instantly download a recording. I will also be creating a series of videos that should help.
 
I am very humbled by the loyalty of all of you. With this new model I am confidant that Opera Depot will be able to go on well into the future and I can continue to share my passion for live opera with you all.
 
Sincerely,
 
Andrew Whitfield
President, Opera Depot Inc.
