This was a very cold , windy and snowy morning, here at Gullringstorp. We find ourselves in the midst of yet another winter.

Unfortunately, this not a day for our goats to be out

Today my goats enjoyed beautiful music from Sicily, Italy.  We listened to Roberto Alagna’s CD ” Sicilian” with lovely romantic and lively Italian pieces, as fresh hay , water and grain was given. I really enjoy Roberto Alagna and have bee able to enjoy him in opera several times. I am really happy to be able to enjoy his singing no matter where I happen to be, here at Gullringstorp.

Roberto Alagna is a French tenor who has performed the works of many of the world’s greatest composers, in some of the worlds most famous opera houses; Verdi, Bizet, Puccini, Donizetti, Massenet, just to name a few.

Here are just some of his roles in the world of opera: Pinkerton in Madame Butterfly, Alfredo in La Traviatta, Roméo in Roméo et Juliette, Don Jose in Don Jose, Hoffman in Les Contes d’Hoffman.

I hope you enjoy Roberto Alagna’s Sicilian:
