To say I know nothing of opera is an understatement, but I assume this roughly 3-minute solo is Russian bassist Feodor Chalipin singing the King Phillip solo from Verdi's "Don Carlos". This is a one-sided 12" 78 rpm, and I have no idea if the recording is the same as the available recordings. Any comments or suggestions appreciated.
