  1. The Daughter of the Regiment at Opera Carolina

    Opera Carolina is presenting Donizetti's La Fille du Régiment, on November 10 (this performance we're reviewing today), 15, and 18, at the Blumenthal Performance Arts Center in Charlotte, NC. Click...

    Not only Anna as Norina is available on video - which I own - but I saw this Don Pasquale live at the Met. Some good memories... But like I said before, Anna has moved away from the "...ina"...

    That one is good, a very traditional staging. I actually do like the Barenboim one you found crappy; find it better than the traditional Met one. The one I really can't stand, is the Copenhagen Ring.
  4. I'm afraid that a Forum section wouldn't have...

    I'm afraid that a Forum section wouldn't have enough takers, given that zarzuela is popular in Spain, Cuba, and a few other Spanish-speaking places, and we don't have a large Spanish-speaking...

    I do find Flórez quite good. It is true that his timbre is not the most beautiful one (as compared to a few others among the elite of light lyric tenors, and yes, Larry Brownlee's voice does sound a...

    Luisa Fernanda is indeed very good. I've found others a bit less good.

    Very interesting!

    "The contrast between their big, healthy voices and the crackly, thin recorded playbacks was stark. It proved just how difficult — indeed, impossible — it was to capture the...

    I've always thought of Zarzuela as the Spanish style of operetta (like in all things Spanish, with a bit of more passionate drama). I've seen a few and they were pleasant. Don't count me as a huge...

    There's this guy Luiz Gazzola who imposed this rule that we don't discuss politics here. Uh-oh, where is he? :scared2: Please let me know if he comes close. I hope the moderators don't see this post....

    Yes, she is very good. I saw her live in Aix-en-Provence a couple of years ago, and whoa, the lady can sing!

    Jennifer Larmore's voice unfortunately is no longer what it was (and she is a mezzo, too, and is 60 years old, now). A great current bel canto light coloratura soprano is Jessica Pratt.

    I saw a Trav with Gimadieva 4 years ago, and liked a lot her agile coloratura. Maybe her agility wasn't working very well this time, which could be due to fatigue, respiratory ailments, etc. And yes,...

    Mom-and-Pop store refers to a small family-owned business as opposed to a big corporation. For example, people blame Amazon and Walmart for killing small individually-owned commerce, given that the...

    Wow, they're a small store! I always depicted them as a big warehouse like Amazon... I mean, of course they probably also have a big warehouse somewhere, but this store facade looks like a...

    Regardless of what is considered his finest efforts, like you, I like Il Pirata. As a matter of fact, of the ten Bellini operas, there are only two I'm not that fond of: Zaira, and Adelson e Salvini....
