    I haven't posted in a while due to:

    1. Computer Crashed!

    2. The end of the school year/chaos!

    3. I haven't been listening to much opera lately. Gasp!

    Perhaps this will serve as a start upon the right track once again.

    I was quite pleasantly surprised by Dessi and Armiliato in this - they mostly coped quite well, although Dessi was a little disappointing in her Act Five big aria. Overall I think it's the best Tutto Verdi I've seen so far - loved the way the staging extended into the audience.



    I then watched them in La Forza del Destino streaming on Arte TV - not very impressed by this one. http://liveweb.arte.tv/fr/video/La_F...l_de_Wallonie/

    Much better for an online experience was this lovely Onegin with Vladimir Chernov. Another reason to love the baritone voice! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzKNU95bjOM

    I have this as a "possible" buy, PL Pizzi production a big plus.....price as usual for this series extremely high, not much choice for this opera in video format, I have the Muti La Scala series I Vespri with Cheryl Studer now.

    Still waiting for Aida release from this series, the preview disc looked very good....

    I've got that Muti DVD too, I like it mainly for Zancanaro. I thought the ballet was much better integrated in the Tutto Verdi.

    I finally got the chance to sit down and listen to this. Wow. Really Outstanding - I don't know if it is the best Meistersinger recorded, but DA is right on the money (so to speak) on this. There isn't a weak voice in the cast, and Gundula Janowitz (Eva) is just meltingly good. Jaw-dropping.

    This is utterly gorgeous, in a beautifully restored working Baroque Theatre, and a fun production with lovely young singers, Buy buy buy.



    I needed something relaxing after watching the Royal Opera House Ring on Youtube.

    Very nice. I like the fact that the orchestra musicians are wearing wigs. I'll buy it, thanks for the tip.

    There's a fascinating doco about the restoration of the theatre to a full working state, with barque stage machinery, scenery, lighting and sound effects. It's also talks about the seating arrangements for the orchestra. I'd recommend watching that first.
