as some of you may recall, there are like 1000 different versions of don carlo and my life goal is to find *the full french version sung in italian* (i.e. the one they never perform) with nicolai ghiaurov so that I can hear him do the duet with carlo which is my favourite piece of music  …because the duet was *almost* always cut from all versions except the french, and ghiaurov doesn’t do the french (except as the inquisitor not as phillip)…so I assumed my dream recording didn’t exist but still kept looking anyway

and i found it and i am low-key crying. 

if any one cares, you can buy the recording here
