    According to Jonas Kaufmann's unofficial web site, this recording is supposed to be released on/around 24 August -- in Europe, at any rate. Heaven only knows when it will become available on this side of the pond.

    I stand corrected: the Rattle Carmen will be released on these shores around 14 August. I've pre-ordered from Amazon.

    Surprise surprise, new Simon Rattle Carmen features wife Magdalena Kozena along with Kaufmann

    Can hardly go wrong with that new release but almost an impossible task to surpass recent Kaufmann Carmen with AC Antonacci and stellar supporting cast vividly conducted by Pappano in blu ray format............

    I have the Covent Garden DVD as well, and agree that it is tops. But I couldn't resist another Kaufmann recording.

    Handel, Rinaldo

    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.
