Elinor Ross, soprano
" In questa reggia " - Turandot (Giacomo Puccini)
Recorded live at Metropolitan Opera House - 06-Jun-1970
Calaf: Franco Corelli
"This is the first opera I recorded at the Philadelphia Academy of Music, in 1966. Elinor Ross is stupendous as Turandot. In some ways her top seemed even bigger than that of Nilsson, since it was a fat rather then lean sound. She is matched at the end by none other than Richard Tucker. Their joint high C almost blew the roof off the Academy!! It was thrilling, as you can tell by the audience reaction!!‚Äč"
