The famous aria "La donna è mobile" from Verdi's opera Rigoletto.
Recorded by Caruso Monday, 16. March 1908.
Monumental performance (if you ask me....) - enjoy the tremendous power of his voice and at the same time his gentle sensitivity. This digital transfer from an original 78 recording may be the closest we'll ever get to how Caruso sounded. A lot of nuances have been lost in the recording due to the poor recording technique, but one can still hear and feel the impact his voice must have had on people at the time. And it is not even a live recording (Caruso never recorded anything live).
