    Conductor/orchestra: Julius Rudel; Philharmonia Orchestra, Ambrosian Opera Chorus
    Cast: Frederica von Stade (Lucette/Cendrillon), Nicolai Gedda (Le Prince Charmant), Jane Berbié (Madame de la Haltère), Jules Bastin (Pandolfe), Ruth Welting (Fairy Godmother), Teresa Cahill (Noémie), Elizabeth Bainbridge (Dorothée)

    I purchased this from Amazon -- it's not in Presto's inventory.

    Looks like the two of us aren't alone in preferring a guy in this role. The latest issue of Das Opernglas has a review of a production of Cendrillon at the Münster Theater with tenor Youn-Seong Shim as Prince Charmant.

    Next weekend I am taking my young opera newbie colleague to NZ Opera's outback version of L'elisir d'amore, featuring WAY too much corrugated iron, and the lovely Pene Patti.



    I took her to Carmen last year and she loved it, so this will be a great second experience. Later in the year they are doing Boheme. This is when it is an advantage to have warhorses only - accessible for newcomers, and it revives my interest in them a bit to be sharing them.

    Wow! What a wonderful voice! Sounds as though you're in for a treat.

    Super voice and ideal opera for a newbie.

    I see now what you meant about corrugated iron!

    At least there's no fear of corrugated iron horses or sheep "disgracing" themselves onstage!

    Went tonight, the noob was transfixed, Pene Pati is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and his wife Amina Edres not far behind. One of the best nights at the opera ever.

    Wow, what a tenor! Musicality at its best!

    Yes, I feel privileged to have heard him sing this in the house (front row seats!). He was also the most convincing Nemorino I have ever seen, sparked off Adina beautifully.

    You must be thrilled that a New Zealander is so good! Do you know of his schedule plans? Is he coming to the Met anytime soon, or another American house?

    I know he has sung at SF opera, next engagements on Operabase looks like Bordeaux and Hawaii. He's young, I'm sure he'll get engaged with that amazing voice and musicality and stage animal ability. Only concern is that he is heading for Pavarotti size and in these lookist days that might count against him.

    Lookist, LOL! Well, it is unfair, but I think the lookist thing hits the ladies more than the gentlemen... Ramón Vargas for example is not a looker and is quite successful. A voice this good should still prevail.
