Rita Fornia, Gounod - Romeo et Juliette - Chanson de Stephano ‎(Shellac, 10", S/Sided).

Rita Fornia (17 July 1878 – 27 October 1922) was an American opera singer. She began her career in Europe at the beginning of the 20th century singing coloratura soprano roles. Early on in her career her voice darkened and dropped slightly causing her to focus more within the mezzo-soprano repertoire while still singing some soprano roles. She joined the Metropolitan Opera company in 1907 where she performed regularly in mostly supporting roles until her retirement in 1922.

ROMÉO ET JULIETTE: Que fais-tu, blanche tourterelle (Gounod). Rita Fornia was born Regina Newman in San Francisco on 17 July 1878; her father, a successful wholesale jeweller, and her mother both hailed from Prussia. Regina Newman (already preferring to be called Rita ) heard Patti in San Francisco (this must have been in 1890) and decided to be a singer. Her singing of the Chanson de Stéphano from Roméo et Juliette is so fine that I often use this record as an example of bel-canto singing in the mezzo-soprano repertoire. Although she does not actually smile very much in what is, after all, an ironic aria, she is graceful and insinuating, and admirably precise in her execution of the triplets and the lightly sung but brilliant scale passage taking her easily up to high C.

Roméo et Juliette (Romeo and Juliet) is an opéra in five acts by Charles Gounod to a French libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré, based on The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. It was first performed at the Théâtre Lyrique (Théâtre-Lyrique Impérial du Châtelet), Paris on 27 April 1867. This opera is notable for the series of four duets for the main characters and the waltz song "Je veux vivre" for the soprano

Gounod: Roméo et Juliette, Carreras, Wise, Rydl. I haven't been able to track down a studio recording of Roméo and Juliette that features Carreras as Roméo, so I'm hanging on to this live recording with all of my life. I can easily put up with that just to be able to hear Carreras singing "Ange adorable", "Ah, lève-toi, soleil" and "Salut! tomebeau! sombre et silencieux". A good tip though is to put on your headphones while listening to this recording.
