    Yeah, and I just doubled the number of Baroque operas in my collection in a few days time! I intend to stop surfing Amazon and ebay for a while (a day or two at least, if I can make it that long).

    You really think I can make it for 1 - 2 days? I need to stop surfing so i can watch more of my opera DVDs. I am way behind with three Lohengrin, three Meistersinger, four Barber of Seville, two Hansel and Gretel, L'elsiir d'Amore with netrebko, Gloriana, Zar and Zimmermann, I Puritani, and Nina all yet to be watched. Then I do still want the two Divia Roberto Devereux DVDs that are just being released.

    yup, time needed to start on that unwatched dvd pile! There's some sort of rule around here about the size of your unwatched/unlistened to pile that involves a goldfish or something but I can't quite remember what it is.

    Does that Lohengrin pile include the Nagano/Lehnhoff? If so, maybe start with that one; Meier will knock your socks off!

    I have them listed haphazardly by one of the singers. Yes I did watch the Meier (Nagano/Lehnhoff) as that was my first Lohengrin--and I love it! I also watched Frey/Studer. The three remaining to be watched include Domingo/Studer, Hofmann/Armstrong. Kaufmann/Hateros.

    I have been scoping for another Giulio Cesare set. I have Sills, Larmore (Jacobs), sung-in-English with Baker (CD and DVD and love it), Dupuy, and the sung-in-German set with Lucia Popp. My favorites of these are Dupuy and the sung-in-English set, which has a great cast and Bowman is an excellent creep Tolomy. Not fond of Jacobs, find it a bit studio sterile. So in scoping things out I found these two sets which really move me. Might have to get both, but they are pricy ($66 and 27 plus shipping):

    Tending to favor this one for the creepy countertenor Tolomy: Sample on You Tube.
