    I so want this. Amazon.uk have it for 38 and I'm very tempted.
    They are pricey and they are... err... well rarely performed operas

    Sometimes these discs get sold out and seem to disappear forever. I've had my eye on a Pacini for a long time but it hasn't been reprinted and any vendors who have stock want ridiculous consideration.

    It's a couple of years since I watched this and great to re-visit a favourite.

    I've only seen the Met's Wadsworth-gergiev-pape production so far ( a good only) but want to see another. I'm waiting for this one to come up in a sale at PC.

    Conductor: Sir Mark Elder
    ROH Orchestra and Chorus
    Director: Sir David McVicar
    Cast: Angela Gheorghiu, Jonas Kaufmann, Olga Borodina, Alessandro Corbelli, David Soar, Iain Paton, Janis Kelly, Sarah Castle, Maurizio Muraro, Bonaventura Bottone

    I really enjoy Sir David's productions. He obviously works closely with the singers to achieve dramatically credible portrayals with a wealth of small but telling details. Alessandro Corbelli's facial expressions say so much about Michonnet's deep, unrequited love for Adriana.
