Anna Bonitatibus offers exemplary interpretations throughout, and even renders the apocalyptic prospect of Orlando paladino attractive; but it’s the haughtiness of “Ho un tumore in un ginocchio” that is most entertaining, the heroine’s bogus sickness suggested by the dainty tunefulness with which she feigns a coughing fit.
