Enrico Caruso: La donna è mobile

The great one, unique, magnificent Enrico Caruso sings La Donna è Mobile Lyrics here) from Verdi's Rigoletto for Victor in 1907. The correct playing speed is 75 rpm which I did not know when I uploaded this record. I played it at 78.26 rpm. Some of Caruso's earlier records played at much slower speeds and I have adjusted those postings accordingly.

Lyrics and translation for Verdi's La donna è mobile could be found in this page, with the version of La donna e mobile (lyrics) by Jussi Björling.
