    Had to do quite a bit of work yesterday so a lot of listening. Firstly an old favourite

    I really do like La Rondine because it has so much lovely melody but I do think its third act is weak and for the most part unmemorable which is a real shame. After La Rondine I thought I might listen to this

    Although I have listened to Don Carlos in full since I first saw it I was really paying attention this time and came to the realization that although it is not my favourite Verdi Opera (joint 4th with La Traviata after Un Ballo in Maschera Il Trovatore and Rigoletto) it does contain several of my absolute favourite moments of Verdi including one of the best death arias ever! (O Carlo Ascolta) his most beautiful Bass music ( The Monks aria in act 2 and Phillips big moment in act 4) plus the Auto Da Fe which I confess I enjoy more than the procession in Aida. I can definitely understand why it is many on this forums favourite Verdi opera!

    Kind of off to a slow start this morning, so while pondering today's walk:

    Summer is upon us here in DC.. I finally broke down and turned on the air conditioning last night as the humidity was bonkers. I now have to begin to re-organize my walking to morninings while there is some shade remaining and before the heat catches up. Bad news if you are not a morning person!

    I'm finally able to walk and listen simultaneously. I walked the same distance today but as my speed is much slower I had time to listen to two complete operas.



    The diction is so clear I don't need the libretto and will be able to learn it easily before I see it.

    --------------------------------------



    I'd forgotten how much I like this. Seeing it in July with a friend who is a relative opera newbie and is at that stage where she just wants to see everything!! I remember that feeling.

    Yes, I remember that feeling all too well, and how excited I was. That excitement may have passed, but the pleasure and passion only have grown.

    I also recall my first Turandot and how my jaw dropped hearing "Nessun Dorma" for the first time. New York City Opera, ca 1978/79, when they were still touring. A real spectacle!

    I don't know if it is because this really is the best version (I know it's highly lauded) or I'm simply finally clicking with this work in general, as it steps out of the shadows of my other beloved Verdi operas. Either way, really enjoying this right now:
