    I've got this one. I don't know any of the singers as they're from the Mariinsky young artists' programme. It's appears to be a popular choice for a young artists' programme, probably because there are about 10 soloists. The Royal Opera House young artists' programme celebrated their 10th anniversary with a staging and it was great fun.

    Saw that one, but seems too modern of a setting. I am thinking more like this one but haven't checked it out on you tube yet. But it does seem as modern also now that I think of it:
    Necessities of life: food, water, air, shelter, and opera.

    I think Naxos are doing a great job of their Rossini operas, with some excellent singers and a good use of scholarly editions.

    Rossini: Otello - New revised edition after the autograph and contemporary manuscripts by Florian Bauer
    Michael Spyres (tenor), Jessica Pratt (soprano), Ugo Guagliardo (bass), Giorgio Trucco (tenor), Geraldine Chauvet (mezzo-soprano) & Leonardo Cortellazzi (tenor)
    Virtuosi Brunensis & Transylvania State Philharmonic Choir, Cluj, Antonino Fogliani



    Weber: Der Freischütz

    Gundula Janowitz (Agathe), Edith Mathis (Ännchen), Peter Schreier (Max), Theo Adam (Kaspar), Franz Crass (Hermit), Siegfried Vogel (Kuno), Bernd Weikl (Ottokar), Günther Leib (Kilian), Gerhard Paul (Zamiel)
    Rundfunkchor Leipzig, Staatskapelle Dresden, Carlos Kleiber



    Vinci, Leonardo: Catone in Utica - World premiere recording
    Max Emanuel Cencic (Arbace), Franco Fagioli (Cesare), Valer Sabadus (Marzia), Martin Mitterutzner (Fulvio), Vince Yi (Emilia), Juan Sancho (Catone)
    Il Pomo D'oro, Riccardo Minasi

    There was also the Veracini that was in the shopping basket

    Also I have made an emergency appointment with the furniture store this afternoon; at the moment the dining table is not functioning (well at least not for original design) and the filing system is starting to fail due to number of CDs. I spent about twenty-four minutes this morning trying to find the one I wanted to listen to.
    Actually I am not sure if it is the furniture store I need to go to or if an appointment with a psychiatrist for help with this opera obsession might be better.

    Well, we do have an excellent psychiatrist right here on Opera Lively . . . though I'm not sure he'd be the one to help with an opera obsession!

    Does the term "enabler" sound applicable ...?

    Part of my recent second-hand haul:



    The classic 1947 recording, with a dry acoustic but featuring Toscanini's fiery conducting. A noble Ramón Vinay as the Moor (though to my ear not as vocally lush as Domingo in his prime), a mellifluous, insinuating Giuseppe Valdengo as Iago, and a somewhat colorless Herva Nelli as Desdemona. A welcome addition to my collection, especially at the bargain price.
