Opera Sustenida would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of the gentlemen who continue to encourage, challenge, and support the people around them!
In honor of those special dads who would do anything for their children, we bring you one of the most famous arias from the Romantic repertoire: “O mio babbino caro” from Puccini’s comic opera Gianni Schicchi.
Gianni Schicchi is a world-class con artist who plays very fast and loose with the law to ensure his daughter’s happiness. This aria drips with melodrama as Lauretta lays it on thick to enlist her father’s help… like father, like daughter! 💁♀️🙏💍🌉
Resident coloratura soprano Nicole Whitney Dubinsky and Diva Wrangler Suzanne Yeo have recorded this piece (in isolation) for your audio enjoyment.
