    Yes, it is very nice. Earliest surviving Salzburg opera, from the early 1690s, still pre-opera seria.

    I'm seeing the final dress rehearsal of Adriana Lecouvreur starring the one and only Draculette in February at ROH. I've always struggled to get into this opera so I'm starting my homework early.

    I just rewatched the Royal Opera House DVD, with Gheorgiu and Kaufmann, a couple of days ago. Along with its potent music, I like the opera's inherently theatrical theme, with everyone playing multiple, deceptive roles, on stage or off. Gheorgiu approaches the lead character as an unmistakable diva, but in this case that's not necessarily amiss.

    Be sure to tell us how it goes!

    Will do!

    I have that DVD so will be watching that too as part of my homework.

    That is my only Cenerentola and I don't feel the need for any others. Had Bartoli for a while but got rid of it. She would be better off singing Handel Operas the way she wobbles her voice all the time.

    I also have the DVD of Cenerentola that has several of the same singers (Montarsolo, and the two nasty daughters IIRC), but a splendid von Stade. Still that is made like a movie and I suppose it would be good to get an actual opera DVD, perhaps Didonato is the way to go for my second Cenerentola.

    Ah Ha! That is it! I didn't know what to do as I have nothing on order. Well now I have a mission. Find a great Cenerentola for my second on DVD. I'll go take a look at the favorite operas voting thread and see what OperaLively folks picked.
