i'd like to rehear the Chicago Aida I saw in 1958, with Rysanek,
Simionato, Bjoerling, Gobbi and Wilderman. I'd also like to know
whether Rysanek really took the Eflat ending in the Triumphal scene
that I still remember hearing from that night.
I'd also like to hear the Boheme I saw with Albanese ca. 1950, just
for her "Scusi" in Act 1.
There are a few more (Caruso in anything, e.g, Butterfly), but these
will do for now.
