    No, I haven't seen it yet. In fact I only ordered it earlier today. I expect it in my mailbox early next week.

    Yes - I enjoyed the light hearted DVD with Scholl and Prina.

    I know! What can I say? I see the recording and I have to have it. Actually, anyone who is trying to diet, save money, stop cursing, anything like that, should stay away from me because I will ruin them. I don't do it on purpose, I promise!

    Oh dear, tick all those boxes. Overweight, potty-mouthed and now officially facing destitution. (Wait till my next order arrives. You will be HORRIFIED). But I blame Presto Classical sales for most of it.

    Now see what you've made me do??

    Actually, I've wanted to get better acquainted with Simon Boccanegra, and it was a choice between this video or the one with Domingo and Anja Harteros. I really like her, and I like Domingo -- but I can't resist my baritone god.

    I know nothing about this......but I see the listing at Amazon USA
    There is nothing really bad about the sound of Decca budget boxset so I will not be a buyer
