    It is a glorious blue sky over Berkhamsted when I am pottering around my garden this morning.
    I am delighting over my hoard of autumnal treasures.
    Striking scarlet berries on the Ilex,
    The last of the fiery red flowers of the Phygelius,
    The flourescent fuschia pink of the Penstemons,
    The silky black leaves of the Ophiopogon...
    And all the greens!

    This morning I am going to enjoy (again) another addition to my great treasures...

    Staying on the India theme, maybe after today's cricket finishes I'll listen to...

    The voices of Fiorenza Cossotto, Jessye Norman and Jose Carreras are all beautiful here.

    Un giorno di regno led me to...
    Nabucco.
    As mentioned many times by others on this forum Suliotis is really exciting to listen to though I really enjoy every minute of this opera

    I am going to change my avatar and henceforth would like to be known as "Prode guerrier".
    No scrap that, just call me Clayton.
    I like Nabucco so much I decided to listen to it again with the Sinopoli recording.
    However I got confused again at the tea cabinet where next to Nabucco was the Ernani recording...
    Again an opera I keep coming back to and would love to attend a performance.

    If in Rome...

    Go see Ernani, 'cos it's on.

    Yes, I am going to wake up at 3:45 am to follow the cricket... but what with my new late night opera listening apparatus (Sennheiser headphones) and all this talk about Barbara Hannigan in the Opera Awards...

    Since getting into other pieces is very time demanding and spare time is scarce lately, I've been exploring familiar land.

    This is wonderful:

    I watched this - it really doesn't get any better, with Sarah Connolly's searing Lucretia, Christoher Maltman spoiled and sexy as Tarquinius and John Mark Ainsley fantastic as Male Chorus. Great production by David McVicar. Very highly recommended.



    There is some cool stuff on YouTube at the moment.

    A funny Italiana in Algieri, based round the conceit of a plane crash in the jungle and the capture of the passengers by a local tribe (it works) with Marie-Nicole Lemieux sounding glorious in the title role (and acting very entertainingly too), and the new discovery of a terrific tenor in Yijie Shi - wow!

    A very interesting Ruslan and Liudmila directed by Dmitri Tcherniakov, started off very traditionally, but then morphed into a more modern telling that worked very well. Conducted by Vladimir Jurowski.

    Stephen Herheim's Les Vêpres Siciliennes from ROH was up for a short while, set in the Paris Opera. I'm not sure it worked perfectly but the integration of ballet elements was interesting and I didn't miss the 30 minute dance interlude. And Erwin Schrott looked lovely in his little black dress. He's very attached to it.

    He looks smashing. Do you think the Mrs. was envious?

    A friend of mine saw Les Vêpres Siciliennes & got a hug and a kiss from Mr. Trebs at the Stage Door afterwards. He wasn't wearing the dress though; a skinny fit top & a beanie hat & looked uber cool. I have seen the photos!

    I bought this solely because of the beautiful cover art, but it turned out to be quite good. (:
