    If I'm honest while I love Caro Nome. I also think that the latter half of act 1 is the most sedate part of the opera. Saying this however I also think Verdi excels himself here as well (sedate or...

    To bring this discussion back on topic I think we should not discount Modern opera and Puccini's influence and how much he could have further influenced it had he lived longer. Puccini is in many...

    In exploring Verdi further I will always recommend Un Ballo In Maschera and Rigoletto those two are real winners if you enjoyed Il Trovatore though Rigoletto is possibly Verdi's most upsetting opera.

    Placido as Gianni I find somewhat discomforting though I am pleased Opolais is not attempting to do all 3. As Il Trittico holds a special place in my heart I guess I just want the best possible cast...

    I would disagree with the example of Written on Skin. Which I found remarkably melodic and with a definite stream of consciousness throughout. I only hope the same can be repeated in Lessons of Love...
