kasarova on vivalavoce

update 16-Dec-2010:
i couldn’t find the aria in french on youtube (for very obvious reason after i attempted to upload the aria), so here’s the 3rd attempt. it’s an absolutely great recording all around and worth buying. click on CC to see the subtitles which i managed to put in. unfortunately the video is blocked in germany.

the text is quite different than the italian version (with subtitles) (again thanks Smorgy).
