    The Eugene Onegin and the Falstaff are amazing! Both staging and singing.

    Beat me to it! Agree 100%.

    Well done Couchie, a fantastic selection. And you'll soon be as bankrupt & destitute as the rest of us on here!

    Oh you've gone & done it now - why did you have to tell him? He'll send all of them back now (except the Wagner).

    Well done, Couchie. It's about time you build up your non-Wagner collection!

    ArkivMusic is having a deep discount sale on several dozen titles, with the vast majority either US$9 or US$10, including Blu-rays. My cart is filling quick. Oh dear ...

    As usual on this side of the pond, I'll have to wait another month to receive my copy of the Humperdinck.

    I saw they had the Henze Boulevard Solitude DVD for seven bucks . . . but then saw I could get the same price on Amazon. Anyway, I gobbled it up. Since the amount you FORCED me to spend was minimal, I won't berate you too much for bringing this to our attention.

    My sincere apology for deflating your wealth by US$7. I have done worse, far worse. I bought these, which I probably would not have considered normally. Mix of Blu-ray and DVD formats as shown:-
