    There are plenty of reviews there that betray the fact that people posture a lot but rarely know what they are saying. I find that the actually good and well-informed reviews there are rare. The...

    Well, I don't think it would be wrong to post Janis Joplin's version here because after all she is singing an operatic aria so it's not off-topic. Yes, her version is interesting, even though...

    Not counting truly contemporary works, I think the top three operas in English are Peter Grimes, The Rake's Progress, and Porgy and Bess. Oh, we can add Dido and Aeneas to them. All four sound fine...

    Yes, I'll watch it with her. I'll bring it to her house; I'm coming to visit for a week. She also asked for a mini-lecture before we start. She also asked for my favorite of Anna Netrebko's...

    Thanks, I was able to read it. What a shame. Indeed, like I said, they could have renovated the sitting area sight lines and relocated those ugly walls around the stage, but a design that did these...

    Wow, after such a long renovation, one would hope that the interior of the opera house would look a bit better. This is not a good-looking house. If you compare this to the Palais Garnier, La Scala,...

    What other two you include in the top 3? And what are the reasons for your mixed feeling regarding the staging? I could still either cancel the order or return it and get a different one.

    Semi-staged might be a deal breaker for someone getting to it for the first time, no? I'd think she'd want the full operatic experience of a staged version.

    Bayreuth. I don't know the La Scala one. Is it good? Is it out on blu-ray?
  18. Best Ring on Blu-ray for beginners - which one?

    My sister and a friend want to get to know The Ring of the Nibelung. She is asking me to buy for her a complete blu-ray version of it.

    I'm uncertain on which one to pick.

    For beginners, the old...
