 Holiday enjoyment April 11, 2013 By Suzanne L. (Gaithersburg, MD) See All My Reviews "Good choices of holiday music. I esp. like Roberto Alagna voice. Would like to find more recent operas he has appeared in & which have been recorded, esp on CD. Within last few yrs he sang with an excellent Russian born soprano, M. Poplanova(sp?), in "Don Carlos". I haven't been able find this on CD." Report Abuse
