    Not reeeeally deserted but pretty much, around 20 people on the whole island, 16 of which are resident Navy officers. A lot of birds, though, and one humpback whale that decided to jump a couple hundred feet away from our boat with no warning at all and spooked the life out of me.

    I do this too, flailing a cricket bat above my head in act 1 scene 3 of Die Walküre






    and occasionally wearing a tutu while gaily dancing to Forêts paisibles

    of course I meant act 3 scene 1; standing on a turntable in my whites flailing a cricket bat during act 1 scene 3 would just be ridiculous and utter nonsense.

    You keep posting pictures of that and I'll be price shopping used sets online. I can't afford these types of threads!

    How are you liking your journey through the Baroque, Florestan?

    Loving it! The Monteverdi is the earliest I have and it is very good. Can hardly wait for my Haydn Orfeo ed Euridice with Cecilia Bartoli to arrive (although that is just past Baroque, the style still seems somewhat present). I never liked Bartoli until I got into Baroque. He singing is perfect for Baroque. I probably need her Handel Rinaldo set.

    Now that I have watched much of this one on DVD the sound recording has far more meaning.

    Yes because the music evokes what is happening through the leitmotifs. And the more you watch and listen, the more you get it.
