    That's OK. I'll just focus on his knees.

    Speaking of Domingo . . .



    Natalie got me thinking about this. All her fault.

    God forbid you focus on his voice!

    Feeding my Barber of Seville addiction. See the nice Rosina on the back cover image.

    I've got that one. Traditional production (pretty bland, I thought), but some excellent singing and conducting. Always good to have another Lohengrin.

    and for $11.49 shipped, not bad. I looked at the Kaufmann production and just could not deal with the sets. But maybe will come around to it someday, so long as he doesn't jump on Elsa like he does in a You Tube clip from what appears to be a different production.

    Meanwhile, just ordered this one for $9.99 shipped:

    I can't recall him jumping on Elsa in the production from Munich, so I'm guessing the YouTube clip you saw was from the Bayreuth "lab rats" staging in the year it premiered.

    Like you focus on La Bellissima's voice?

    Well that is a great relief. Is this the one you refer to as the Munich production?:
