  • Love that voice. I have a complete collection of all his recorded operas. Can’t get enough of Luciano. He did more to inspire growing public interest in this consummate art form than any other modern performer with the possible exception of Placido Domingo, who still holds the record for the number of roles he has performed professionally.
