    Currently my favourite of all th Donizetti operas and bel canto operas I have heard. I'm not that much of a fan of Sutherland, but I think this is a fine performance.

    It is summer in England so cricket and the garden (and cheese and wine that combines with the two excellently) has stolen some opera time. When the summer sun sets and the autumnal winds start blowing in, like a strange vampire, the opera will reawaken.

    Sorry for very strange vampire analogy. Too many vampires around these days. Every time I switch the picture box on there seems to be another vampire drama on. Then I switch it off.

    However, for this morning, did someone mention Maometto Secondo?

    Rossini: Maometto Secondo
    Paul Nilon (Erisso), Si‚n Davies (Anna), Darren Jeffery (Maometto, Sultan of the Turks), Caitlin Hulcup (Calbo), Christopher Diffey (Condulmierol), Richard Dowling (Selimo)
    Garsington Opera Orchestra and Chorus
    David Parry
    Recorded live at Garsington Opera at Wormsley June and July 2013

    I'm listening to opera, but usually don't post here because it's nothing new (yesterday evening, it was the DVD of the Salzburg Festival Don Carlo with Kaufmann and Harteros).

    Yeah, well. Yesterday, I went out for morning coffee with a neighbor (which we do every couple of weeks), and my house key apparently slipped out of my pocket. I had to wait until another neighbor, who keeps a house key for me, came home to let me in. Then, there was a Dr. appointment. Hence, no opera yesterday.

    On my way back from the Dr. I stopped by Starbucks, which had my key.

    And, my Washington Nationals won #9 in a row last night!

    I really like both of those, a tragedy that the Moffo "lucia" was not chosen to be rematered as RCA hybrid SACD series like her Traviata, currently OOP only available used......
