This Verdi-album is a disaster, it is a scorn to all human beeings who`s taking operasinging(classical) serious. To perform those demanding big arias you have to train your voice for several years, to make it sound open, free, natural and beautiful. Then it will carry through the orchestra with ease. But in those arias you also have to have a voice that is lyric-dramatic, to make its expression. In this case; Bocelli has nothing of it and is definitivly not a lyric-dramatic voice like Bjoerling, Corelli, Domingo, Carreras. He`s squeezing his voice, lifts up his larynx, he has no overtones and is too thin. So if you are a newcommer in this kind of music and think its good, then you have been fooled, beacause it`s not realistic. Bocelli could not make this arias in performances without micorphone. That`s the truth.
