O mio babbino caro

Playing on the iPod is the exquisite voice of Angela Gheorghiu (truly born with "tears in her voice") singing Puccini's "O mio babbino caro" ("oh my dear daddy") from the opera Gianni Schicchi. Beautiful.
This post is dedicated to my father (il mio proprio babbino caro) who really likes this wonderful Romanian soprano and who first called my attention to her almost ten years ago.

Thanks for the dedication...
I really love Angela's voice and acting.
For me she levels Maria Callas. I saw Maria Callas in the Opera of Lisbon (São Carlos)many years ago, in 1958. I'll never forget it.
But I haven't had the opportunity of listening Angela in a theatre yet.
