    Hello. Is 4 operas in a day legal?
    Yes, apparently so. Though it is reaching the recommended daily allowance.
    So it's not safe then?
    I'm really sorry but I'm not in a position to give that sort of advice.
    Though you obviously do.
    Yes, I live life on the edge.


    Verdi: Un giorno di regno
    José Carreras, Jessye Norman & Fiorenza Cossoto
    Royal Philharmonic Orchestra,
    Lamberto Gardelli

    Yes, is it another under-rated opera?
    Presto's sell 1 CD and 1 DVD (that's not part of a box set).
    Why hasn't there been more performances I wonder. Especially with the anniversary...

    A very underrated comic opera, filled with great tunes and a couple of great arias.
    I love listening to it.
    Amazing that Verdi could write such a bubbly opera after seeing such personal tragedy .

    Yes, or in fact any opera. Why the music did not just stop there is difficult to comprehend.
    Is it the magical properties of music?
    I bought a book of the letters of Verdi many years ago that has just been lying on the shelf since. I maybe will start reading it soon and some answers may lie there.

    Brilliant. Who would have thought; write an opera that includes a singing contest!

    Act 2 is superb. Kollo is such a passionate voice. and Elisabeth comes back with some beautiful songs. and Braun, wow. This is a really high scorer! I like it as much (or more?) than Lohengrin. I don't know... will have to do another side by side listen!

    Bridge game heh?

    I hope you don't have any thing more than tokens on it; this opera will have you distracted for hours and you will lose count...

    Doh! Actually I've said it before; if I sound stupid, it's because I'm not that clever...

    This one has just been bumped up the purchase wish list straight to the top!

    to be fair though; it is the same "WHO"

    It's Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg that I don't have and haven't heard yet.

    I would like to make his acquaintance soon.
