    I have the Nina set. It is a good one. Live performance.
    I also have the Giulio Cesare, Barber of Seville, and Puritani. All good sets. Mariella Devia sings on Puritani.

    I hope he knew that his opera recordings had gone to an appreciative fan.

    That's what is so great. I had never even heard of some of these!

    I think he might have already gone, but just in case I sent a deeply thankful message back via Alice's friend's mum.

    Nabucco-Verdi

    from the Tutto Verdi series

    I received a 7 dollar Amazon video credit, which made this $7.99 total. I don't know Nabucco very well, and of the 4-5 from the Tutto Verdi series that I was eyeing, this preview appealed to me the most. I'm really looking forward to watching this. (In fact I bought my hubby two new video games and a television series for Christmas, which should free my evenings up for opera! :lol: )

    I couldn't figure out how to spend my latest Amazon gift card. So I didn't.



    Saw the classic Abbado Boccanegra used for a good price on Amazon UK--before I realized my gift card only works for Amazon U.S.! But the price was so good, I went ahead and paid actual money for it.

    A few more of these bargains, and I'll save myself to the poor house.

    That's a good recording to have in the cabinet and if I remember correctly, one of the best recordings made in a basement.

    Of course--that's why I bought it!

    Actually, I've had it on vinyl forever. But since it's been years since I had a turntable, and my vinyl is gathering dust, I figured I was overdue for an upgrade.
