Golden Age Singer of the Week--Tito Gobbi

Tito Gobbi singing "Va, Tosca!" from Mr. Puccini's masterpiece, Tosca.  Apparently an excerpt on a French TV show.

This is an excerpt from the 1964 ROH Covent Garden production Tosca Act II that was televised on the BBC.

Now that's a Scarpia!

Here is Gobbi's Wikipedia bio-blurb.

(I'm in a Tosca mood because I participated in a Tosca sing-through yesterday.  As Spoletta.)

That IS a Scarpia. I hope you enjoyed saying "Sant'Ignazio m'aiuta!" :) I actually find Spoletta quite an interesting character, and that's my favorite line of his.
