Tebaldi-Tucker rip the roof off

This has to be one of the greatest duets of this aria I have ever enjoyed. Renata Tebaldi and Richard Tucker in 1957. Goodness, can you imagine this live? All the voices they call large today, folks, just aren’t, these voices had cut, had color, had even quality and were also beautiful. NO screaming. This is what people used to want in these roles. Wouldn’t you?
