Again your Playlist has incorrect information - this time it's Cosi fan tutte. Neither Carlo Bergonzi nor Birgit Nilsson have sung in Cosi fan tutte. There is no recording of this opera with the cast as listed in the playlist, except for Karl Boehm as conductor. The cast that is listed for Cosi fan tutte seems to be the one for Verdi's Ballo in maschera. You are not even listing a record label. What's going on?

Another complaint about the playlist for Entfuehrung aus dem Serail: The listing for Act 3 shows yet another cast - again wrong! Bergonzi, Nilsson, Simionato et al.??? Where do you get this incorrect information? Please see my previous posting. Clearly this recording is what we identified there - Gruberova, Battle, Talvela etc.

We are listening to Mozart's Entfuehrung aus tem Serail on Operavore. Great performance - however, whoever updates the Playlist has the cast mixed up with that of the previous selection, Don Giovanni! This 1987 performance on Decca is conducted by Georg Solti, but Michael Fabiano is much too young to have sung under Solti! The singers here are Editha Gruberova, Kathleen Battle, Goesta Winberg, Martti Talvela, Heinz Zednik, and Will Quadflieg. Please make a correction in your playlist.
Thanks for providing a great and varied selection of operatic works and selections!
