    Understandable. Who wants to admit to drinking binges at an AA meeting?

    Look at it this way, Clayton: all of us are addicted; all of us admit it, and we all are enabling each other.

    It's a perfectly circular world here ...

    I know, I am slow.

    My goodness; I used to work purposely slow. What was that like for my colleagues?

    Though I think "the enabler" sounds like a bad movie

    so I'll keep him filed under Captain

    though I'm going to read the terms and conditions of the forum; I thought it was written somewhere...

    so which operas do you mostly listen to?

    I believe that the " terms and conditions" were either written by Alma in blood or invisible ink on fragile tissue paper.

    Angela Meade is an exceptional performer; I saw her in Ernani from the Met a few years ago.

    absolutely superb
    I love Rimsky-Korsakov and I just love the way "Snegurochka" seems to just roll off the tongue. I've said it and most non-operatic friends of mine suspect I'm having some sort of seizure which prevents me from talking correctly.....

    Started out mostly Italian (from Baroque to Verismo) and French (everything) but lately I've been trying to wrap myself around Czech, Russian & German, & English.......

    Snegurochka is a Great opera and name. It (both music and name) sounds so warm (irony?) and comfortable. I love it.

    I must confess, after all these years I've still never listened to the Böhm Ring. Please let us know how you think its individual operas stand up in head-to-head comparison with the Solti.
