    It looks good. I will get it at some stage. It's the only DVD/Blu-ray version of Cendrillon, I think.

    Sounds intriguing. Here is the blurb from Presto Classical:

    Thanks to the new Cherubini Edition, the composerís unknown comic opera Koukourgi was staged for the first time in celebration of his 250th anniversary 2010.

    The premiere production of Luigi CherubiniĎs opera Koukourgi at the Klagenfurt Stadttheater revealed a work that combines a tale from ancient China with the sensibility of the French Revolutionary times of its composition. The three act opera sees a young Chinese man battling for the hand of his sweetheart against the Tartar mandarin Koukourgi, the not unlikeable anti-hero described as a large pumpkin.

    The turmoil in Paris led to Cherubiniís librettist Honorť-Nicolas-Marie Duveyrier being imprisoned in the Bastille and fleeing to Denmark. The opera was left with the finale incomplete and has remained unperformed for over two centuries. Koukourgiís finale was completed by Heiko Cullman and the new performing edition has allowed the opera to reclaim its rightful place on the stage.

    Leonardo Vinci (1690-1730), Partenope (1723), CD and DVD. Of course, what got my attention was the title of this opera, which was also set by Handel in 1730.

    The guy in the leather knickers is a reminder that not all Kiwis are dull and conservative.

    Actually I don't think Don G. has really thought this through. So he's grappling with Donna Anna and he's got her where he wants her but she's still struggling - and then he has to let go and try and peel himself out of the skin-tight leather and chain mail? Rather dim psycho-geezer if you ask me.

    Well in some versions she's not struggling.

    Well in some versions Don Giovanni turns out to be named Indiana Massachuset and in final scene with Commendatore he takes Donna Anna on his shovel and they fly to the moon on it together.

    That still leaves the bit of peeling.

    Depending on who was the Don, if it was me I wouldn't either. Rather a short opera though.

    Wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating crackers but not keen on the gear.

    Other Dons who could add me to their catalogo - Simon Keenlyside, Christopher Maltman, Peter Mattei.
