“The Three Sopranos” – the Romanian Ilean Cotrubas, the Italian Renata Scotto, and the Russian Elena Obraztsova – sharing a stage at the beautiful Roman Amphitheater at Siracuse, beautifully supported by the Czech Symphony Orchestra. Singing well-loved selections from such operas as Pagliacci, La Boheme, Tales of Hoffmann, Carmen, Aida, and more, each of these three great artists brings to the proceedings her own distinctive style as an actress, a star, and a vocalist. Among other standouts, Cotrubas sings Mimi from La Boheme – the role that made her and international sensation. Obraztsova, the mezzo, sings Carmen; Scotto sings Amelia, from Verdi’s Un Ballo in Maschera. And two duets pair the singers off and bring out fascinating nuances.
