    I've got this and it's OK:

    I already have two Meistersinger DVDs, three Hollander DVDs and one Lohengrin DVD.

    I don't know that I am going to get into many more of Wagner's operas. Time will tell.

    You'd have to come to Urbana, Illinois . . . and I already grabbed the only one!

    Or maybe there's that internet thing . . .

    I had to.



    Classic recordings of Salome, Elektra, Der Rosenkavalier, Ariadne auf Naxos, Die Frau ohne Schatten, and Arabella.

    Stop me before I Amazon again.

    On a completely unrelated note the Suor Angelica on this is supposed to be excellent

    Owning this I can confirm that it is definitely as strong as Vicky in my other Angelica*

    *Decided to skip the Un Ballo in Maschera as I'm not a massive fan of the Oscar from what I hear on itunes. (Plus it's very hard not to hear Gobbi as Scarpia, Callas as Tosca or Di Stefano as Cavaradossi. I listen to the De Sabata Tosca way too much! Tosca has definitely overtaken La Rondine and maybe even La Boheme for me! )
