    Since the 1970s and Tchaikovsky’s 1812 and Marche Slave,
    this is my first new Tchaikovsky work and I like it.
    There are no long Wagner operas. Only short attention spans.

    Nearly crashed the car because I was laughing so much at this brilliant aria. Jump to 1.30 to get to the hilarious bit:

    While not an aversion, Sutherland just does not move me. I like her Maria Stuarda recording but only because it has Huguette Tourangeau.

    Somebody was listening to this the other day so I decided to give it a spin. I actually prefer Galina to Anna in this role as I think she does young and troubled better. And of course you get the Siberian Hunky as Robert.

    I have been quite pleased with the several Gergiev recordings that I own (two Boris Godunov and Khovanshchina). I got the cheap Iolanta and like it very much. I am sure the Gergiev is much better. Maybe someday I will add that to my collection.

    This is a Pristine remaster featuring an on-fire Callas and duets between Callas and Giulietta Simionato that are just killer - the way their voices blend is genius. Even shouty old Mario del Monaco isn't that obtrusive here (maybe Pristine toned him down a bit...).

    I am usually way too cheap to spring for Pristine recordings. This was ripped for me by old friend Dark Angel.

    Pollione is often a bit of a shouter. That's why I like John Osborn in the Cecilia Bartoli Norma.

    I miss Dark Angel. He hasn't been around for a long time.

    Live performance, 1973. I heard this one is sung in Italian.
