    It all comes down to how effectively they handle the final ultra dramactic brother killing sister scence (hopefully not done offstage as some do) and the glorious spiritual release

    Watching it since the intermission!

    Edit: HAHAHA SUFFERING LUDOVIC TEZIER!!! It's almost a crime to put him against a fine actor like Kaufmann

    Very intense last act. Ludovic kept up the good work and only looked faintly haddocky once or twice. He does have a wonderful voice! Harteros and Kaufmann were both brilliant. I liked the staging - having Carlos as a traumatised young boy when his father was killed made the relentless search for revenge more believable. I also quite liked having the father and the abbot sung by the same person - two sides of the same belief system.

    And somehow, not sure why it worked this time but never before, I seem to have managed to download it as it was streaming!

    While you guys have fun with all these sleek and fancy productions and Internet proxies and whatnot, poor Alma is home, slaving on and listening to bad opera (Bianca e Fernando) just to fulfill his duty of getting to know all operas by Bellini.

    Poor, poor Alma. I think you should all burn a DVD of these gorgeous productions and mail it to him, poor creature. He's here trying to uphold the art form while you guys have shameless fun!

    The Forza was freely available all over the world. Isn't it Saturday where you are today? So you're not working? There's no excuse for sticking to bad opera when you could be watching Harteros and Der Jonas.

    Available from?
    I thought it was this proxy thing you recommended for the French TV.
    Yes, it's Saturday, and no, I'm not working for my day job, but I'm working for the art form. One must be exposed to all of Bellini even when it's bad. One must suffer this fate rather than watching Harteros and Der Jonas. It's la forza of my destino.

    I finally made it home after a week on the road - a week largely without opera (except when I was in the car with Sirius and the Met Opera channel), doing penance amongst my philistine friends and family:
