    A version with Renée Fleming and Jonas Kaufmann. (As I dodge bricks thrown by Baroque opera enthusiasts who love their countertenors . . . )

    Has anyone seen the documentary "Teresa Berganza: Master Classes" reviewed in the June 2012 Opera News? It sounds intriguing. Opinions?

    Yes, indeed. The unspoken rule from the International Handel Aficionado Anonymous "Handel & Regie are incompatible".

    I gather that you're joking. There's been some really good Regie DVDs of Handel operas - and some very bad ones too, of course - but as a Handel aficionado, I'm sure you'll still like some of the good ones, Regie or not.

    Yes, I've seen it. I found it interesting, but a bit less than I thought I would. I like stuff about vocal technique so I had high expectations, but upon seeing it, at times I thought that some parts dragged on for a bit too long and lacked tighter edition to eliminate bits that were not that interesting, with students going on and on in their vocal exercises.

    Thanks. I'll probably wait to see if my library gets a copy.

    This appears to be the only DVD/Blu-ray available of Humperdinck's Königskinder. I do not have many of Humperdinck's operas.

    Jonas Kaufmann (Der Königssohn), Isabel Rey (Die Gänsemagd), Oliver Widmer (Der Spielmann), Liliana Nikiteanu (Die Hexe), Reinhard Mayr (Der Holzhacker), Boguslaw Bidzinski (Der Besenbinder), Tomasz Slawinski (Der Wirt), Miroslav Christoff (Der Schneider), Chorus & Orchestra of the Opernhaus Zürich, Ingo Metzmacher.
