A sure fire crowd pleaser

This CD, although there are no newly recorded tracks, is a true gem. This CD highlights not only a lot of the best recordings Ms. Fleming has ever made, but it also highlights a lot of the most mainstream arias and songs that she has recorded, making it a great introductory CD to opera in general. For fleming fans, this CD is a must have it shows in great detail her versatility as a singer and her undeniable artistry.
