    Yes, and you will see I ordered a copy--posted in the "What opera have you purchased recently?" thread. How could I resist for $11 shipped?

    I am also entranced because Philippe Rouillon is a dead ringer for his historical character.

    Another problem is that she stabs him in the abdomen. I thought it had to be to the heart. The abdomen stab will take him down, but results in a slow and nasty death. And in the end she just disappears between two parts of the tilted buildings instead of actually jumping off to her death. Well there may be a reason you can pick this one up on Amazon for $2.95 used.

    A better Tosca (I just ordered on DVD). The stabbing isn't perfect (seems not to sink the knife--of course they really don't want to kill the guy in real life eh) but is in the right location for a fatal heart wound. Also the ending is tasteful, with her jumping off the parapet wall, but not (as in some productions) then showing her laying in a pool of blood on the sidewalk below (I don't need that graphic detail). In fact, her jump in this opera is beautifully executed and looks very realistic. Check it out:

    Also like how she throws here cape at the lead guy behind her, slightly slowing him down just before she mounts the parapet wall.

    Not quite an opera but a great performance with some wonderful singing and an unusual but memorable Orlofsky.It is a personal favourite of mine.

    Ohhhhhh! That is a wonderful looking Fidelio. I take it that cannot be had on DVD with subs, but I know it well enough to watch without subs. Wow. I am thrilled. Will have to watch with my son. Thanks so very much!
