    I need another Verdi like I need a hole in my head.....but *sigh* Verdi Actually, I don't even technically need another AIDA. I have Caballe, Tebaldi, and Harteros in the title roles (the latter bought for Kaufmann). I actually have the highlights version of this one. But what the hell, you only live once.

    Could not resist trying the other La Serva Padrona composer's effort for $3.41 USD shipped!

    Ah, Paisiello! Whenever people think of The Barber of Seville, it's his name that will come to mind.

    Yeah. I have maybe 12-14 Barber of Seville on DVD and none are Paisiello. I maybe should give it a try, but it seemed duller than Rossini's. Likewise Paisiello's Serva Padrona does not seem as exciting as Pergolesi's. But for that price I could not resist.

    I made a stop at Dussmann's in Berlin Mitte, but it was hard to find bargains or rarities that can't be purchased on Amazon. I did pick up a few things... but will wait to post them after returning home.

    I really need to go to Glyndebourne some day. Ann told me there is a bus service to and from central London so I really can't keep saying "oh but the hotels are prohibitively expensive..."
