    This had better be good, considering the utter disgrace from the Deborah York and David Daniels Rinaldo, which was a disaster from a staging point of view to the point of mockery. This will be the second available version of Rinaldo on DVD/Blu-ray (luckily there are first class versions of it on CD recording). Considering how good Giulio Cesare in Egitto was from Opus Arte, let's see if this label continues with good taste.

    Opus Arte, 190 minutes.

    Recorded live at Glyndebourne Opera House, Lewes August 2011. Sonia Prina (Rinaldo), Varduhi Abrahamyan (Goffredo), Tim Mead (Eustazio), Anett Fritsch (Almirena), Brenda Rae (Armida), Luca Pisaroni (Argante) & William Towers (A Christian Magician). Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Robert Carsen (Stage Director) & Ottavio Dantone (Conductor)
    Carsen may be my favorite current director, and Glyndebourne usually seems to offer intelligent, attractive productions (like the McVicar Giulio Cesare). Let's hope the combination produces something wonderful!

    I've seen it thanks to Annie who recorded it for me from BBC TV. It's Ok, set in a boy's school, slightly more coherent than the Daniels version, but not really good, dammit.

    "Sour" Angelica ? Holy cow, that's one of the best unintentionally funny typos I've seen in a long time !
    I guess it could have been called that if Maria Callas had ever sung that role ,with her less than dulcet voice .
    Freudian slip ?

    Fact, it would seem. The album even has its own little mystery puzzle site, complete with youtube video(s)!



    And I have a feeling that the rest of the album art will potentially be even more frightening than the album art for that Sacrificium CD.

    You do realize, don't you, that all of our Callas devotees will now be coming after you with torches and pitchforks . . .

    DA recommended them and I am now working my way through them. Deidamia has some lovely arias, including this one (from a different recording) where the soprano imitates a nightingale:
