    Where can I get that DVD of Callas?

    Are any of the CD sets full length (Sills and Theodossiou are 3 CD sets for 3 hours, but most others are 2 CDs)?

    Ever heard this set and if so is it any good:

    I don't know the recording, but see that it was done in 1975. Scotto's singing was in decline not long after (remember, she made her debut in 1954), so I would suggest approaching with caution.

    Still going through my Solti Strauss opera box set. Great recordings; meltingly lovely Arabella.

    I was still picking my pimples at 14 but Mozart managed to write a full opera seria with complicated themes and some lovely arias. Nice singing by a cast which includes Cecilia Bartoli, Brian Asawa, Natalie Dessay, and Juan Diego Flórez in his early days.

    NICOLAI: The Merry Wives of Windsor
    Wilma Lipp, Rosl Schwaiger, Arnold van Mill, Walter Berry
    Conductor: Wilhelm Schüchter

    GOETZ: Der Widerspenstigen Zahmung
    Annelies Kupper, Gottlob Frick, Marcel Cordes, Benno Kusche
    Conductor: Joseph Keilberth

    From this wonderful set:


    which also includes,

    LORTZING: Zar und Zimmermann
    Hermann Prey, Lucia Popp, Karl Ridderbusch, Werner Krenn
    Conductor: Heinz Wallberg

    LORTZING: Der Wildschutz
    Walter Berry, Anneliese Rothenberger, Horst Günter, Rosl Schwaiger
    Conductor: Wilhelm Schüchter

    FLOTOW: Martha
    Erna Berger, Peter Anders, Josef Greindl, Else Tegetthoff, Eugen Fuchs
    Conductor: Johannes Schüler

    Worth it for Martha alone, this set can be had for a reasonable price used online. I think it cost me all of $16 shipped.

    Mozart: Le nozze di Figaro: Ileana Cotrubas (Susanna), José van Dam (Figaro), Tom Krause (Il Conte), Anna Tomowa-Sintow (La Contessa), Frederica von Stade (Cherubino), Jane Berbié (Marcellina), Jules Bastin (Bartolo), Heinz Zednik (Basilio), Janet Perry (Barbarina)
    Wiener Staatsopernorchester und-Chor, Herbert von Karajan

    This is a live performance so the sound is not ideal, but I enjoyed my all-time favourite soprano Ileana Cotrubas, as well as José van Dam and Flicka.
