    This opera has some pleasant moments, but not much happens musically. It likely makes a bigger impression on the stage. It seems to me that Schreker's earlier works Der Ferne Klang and Die Gezeichneten show up in the German opera houses' repertory, but I don't recall Der Schatzgäber showing up, at least not in the opera houses I tend to track.

    Not only is Wagner lumpy, he sends you mad.

    I rest my case ....

    I have been very afraid of what the title Der Schatzgraber" means in English ...

    (please don't spoil the moment if the translation is innocuous.)

    I decided to close out the year with a long walk - because of the move, my walking the past several months went all to hell.

    Arlington is no where near as interesting to walk in than downtown DC. Photos, I think, would reveal a suburban wasteland (except there are some nice houses along the way).

    I chose this for my walking music - glorious! Highly recommended! (even if you aren't out walking)

    The second act of this recording is my single favourite act of any CD I own. It's epic. Kaufmann, Stemme and Mattei. I nearly passed out.

    I confess

    technically not strictly true

    when the seasonal grape juice was flowing last night

    I did sneak in another round of Les Indes galantes...



    is it a big problem when I'm hiding opera consumption on an opera forum?
