Great Opera Stars teaching how to sing

Great opera starts such as Birgit Nillsson, Renata Tebaldi, Alfredo Kraus, Luciano Pavarotti, Montserrat Caballe, Placido Domingo, Ileana Cotrubas, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Grace Bumbry giving lessons on how to sing…

  1. I liked them all and their approach and advice to the pieces. The tenor
    with Alfredo Kraus was NOT prepared to sing that.. too much and he didn’t
    have the voice or even a little technique. Cotrubas made me laugh so hard
    and Luciana Serra is right… also very funny.

  2. I just feel bad for Alfredo Kraus, his student was not ready to sing like a
    tenor, hence he was way to heavy so his crack was inevitable. it sounded
    like as if his student never knew about how to properly produce a covered
    sound.

  3. Maybe Kraus should have told the tenor (who had a good voice but not yet
    the technique) “You’re not quite ready for this aria.” He sort of let him
    crash and burn and took the opportunity to show the HE (Kraus) still had
    it. Hmmmm

    E. Schwarzkopf at 2:30 – what does she sing? I know that it’s a notorius
    aria (especially at 2:35 it is so heared before) but just cannot remenber
    it 😀 Help please…

  5. This was posted some five years ago, but it is really instructive. Master
    classes are supposed to be for singers who already have their technique and
    discipline in place. Most of these singers sound like they are just
    starting to learn how to sing. And a great singer isn’t necessarily a good
    teacher (just my opinion).
