The World's Greatest Music
Katherine Jenkins showcases some of the most beautiful operatic pieces, sung by some of the world’s most brilliant voices.
'Puccini’s great gift was for melody,' says Katherine. 'He could make suicide, murder, unrequited love, betrayal and any other calamity - melodic. And he understood exactly what to do to make grown men and women weep in the opera house.' While Verdi is usually considered more highbrow, no one can match Puccini for popular appeal. This beautiful aria comes from a short and little-performed opera, but it became famous sung by Kiri the Kanawa on the soundtrack of the Merchant-Ivory classic, A Room with a View.
