Juan Diego Florez rules!!!! Yes, i know, i ve said it a thousand times.



Ok, its the truth, i can't live without listening to Juan Diego's voice! I own a huge collection of his recordings (mainly pirate in-house recordings...you know me...) and dvds and i have spent many many days listening to his Idreno in Semiramide, Tonio in La Fille du regiment, Almaviva in Barbiere etc! I just can't live without his absolutely fantastic high C's! You can find me driving on the Kifissias Ave. listening to "Ah mes amies" over and over again, to the highest possible volume (well, Florez is a defeaning experience). But Juan Diego is not only High C's! He is a very sensitive singer that can bring tears to your eyes interpretating roles like Nemorino in L'Elisir d'amore. And as today i am in a very "sensitive" mood, i started my day with Juan Diego singing Una furtiva Lacrima. Mafniiiiiificeeeeent!
