    Very impressive production with a very capable cast. I don't get the 'achingly beautiful score' part, though.

    Never try to teach a pig to sing. You will waste your time and you will annoy the pig.

    Lovely voices and makes a nice change

    Review from the BBC
    "The world calls them its singers and poets and artists and storytellers; but they are just people who have never forgotten the way to fairyland."

    Now that sounds interesting. Just as I was listening to Les Troyens! ...(Hector Berlioz, who regarded him as "a composer to be reckoned with")...
    Add to that being championed by Richard Bonynge and I am very keen.

    "...delicate and pretty melodic palette in use, and a big-boned flourish, underpinned by Teutonic winds and brass..."

    lemme try! lemme try!

    Going back a few more years.

    We just discovered a channel on the picture box called Gold. Watching for the first time in many years, episodes of Only fools and horses.

    They are showing all the best ones with Roger Lloyd-Packer (Trigger), who passed away last month.

    How does this compare to Opera Rara's recording of Belisario?
