    Barber of Seville #s 9 and 10 in my collection. So far all have been wonderful.

    Had to purchase this one so I can get familiar with it before attending the opera in concert next April, also featuring Joyce DiDonato.

    The black-and-white production from Munich can be viewed on YouTube -- however, you'll need to watch 16 individual clips rather than one large single one.

    Do you know if the DVD is any better picture quality than the You Tubes?

    now that's quite funny because I thought I bought it on your recommendation!

    I might have flagged it as a new CD and then forgotten to buy it myself. Probably less than three hundred brain cells functioning!

    I think it might be a good time for them to lay off the tequila shooters. At least until Christmas morning.
