Still in a good mood from Saturday’s “Comte Ory” broadcast, I stumbled across another Isolier – Laura Polverelli in 2009 at the Rossini Festival in Pessaro. I didn’t hear it, but Polverelli gets extra points for accessorizing (the Fedora!), the pure and simple White Shirt (including open buttons) and the classic sleeve roll.
Then again, there’s DiDonato’s take on this particular page… extra points for leather, boots, accessorizing (the soprano!) and verve!

…is there any other Isolier that you’ve heard/seen and would recommend?
