    Definitely get the Jurowski--the best of the bunch, I think.

    I add this to the Stein and de Burgos that are in the mail and the two I have watched so far: Levine and Mackerras. Those two are very good and I suspect the other three will be great also.

    So much chat about one Nicola Porpora finally reduced me to see what all the excitement is about. I found Arianna a Nasso on iTunes - I guess I'm not too old for instant gratification after all. Orlando also is available, so have that waiting on my list.

    That is great but I am still waiting them to release the Robert Carsen Platée from Opéra Comique. It was brilliant.

    Agreed - although Paul Agnew in the above production is a wonderfully goofy Platée....

    He has mighty fine knees, as I can testify from seeing him live in a skirt in Samson et Dalila.
