Baritone SImon Keenlyside as Posa and Tenor Rolando Villazon as Don Carlo sing ‘Che Parli tu di morte’ from Verdi’s ‘Don Carlo.’ ROH, 2008.

It’s been scientifically proven (by me) that listening to Simon Keenlyside will give you sexy nice dreams.

Bass-Baritone Ildebrando D’Arcangelo sings Dr. Dulcemara’s aria ‘Udite, Udite, O Rustici’ from Donizetti’s opera ‘L’elisir d’amore.’  Wien Staatsoper, 2006.  Oh, and there’s Tenor Rolando Villazon as Nemorino at the end.

Now this is a voice I am dying to hear live.
