Massenet: Thaïs (In Italian) - Kabaivanska, Tagger, Bruscantini, Zerbini; de Fabritiis. Catania, 1969


Listen to a Sample:


These days if there is anything rarer than a performance of Thaïs, it is a performance of Thaïs in Italian.  Here Raina Kabaivanska takes on the daunting title role.   I was surprised to hear how well she could cope in lighter repertoire.  I had always known her in spinto parts. The sound is good.
