    ^ Very strange. I have heard of Donizetti's Don Pasquale, but never heard of this Olivo e Pasquale. Off to Wikipedia I go.....


    Ooooh, ooooh, oooooh, this sounds like a good one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olivo_e_Pasquale

    I like that in this case Wikipedia has the short synopsis. I like to be able to get the gist of the opera in a 1 minute read, not 6-10 paragraphs broken out by act. There is a place for that, but for my initial screen, the one paragraph synopsis is best.

    Now I am off to Amazon to see what the selection is.

    You guys are killing me--or killing my wallet, that is!
    There are no long Wagner operas. Only short attention spans.

    ^ That one was too pricey, but listening to Serra as Rosina on Barber of Seville got me to search her name on Amazon and I ended up with this wonderful recording on order:

    I know I wrote this one off in the favorite ring thread but I decided to give it a go. Eleven disks total.
    Expensive online, but I got it at a much better price ($32 shipped) buying each opera separately.

    I didn't purchase these myself, rather was given them for my birthday from my mom and sister:
    A couple from Renee Fleming, I look forward to watching these!
