    $6 shipped. Why not? And I like Anne Gjevang's (Erda) contralto voice on my Solti Messiah set.
    Since that night at the Polka, I don't understand you, Sheriff.

    I'm interested. I really liked Audi's productions of Monteverdi's operas and am wondering how the Ring cycle works. PC just happen to have the cycle on sale now. I think I might buy it.

    PC definitely has a decent price with the sale. I'll stick with this one opera for now, and still have the entire de Billy Ring to watch yet.

    I want to purchase a Parsifal dvd (already seen the Met JK, Girard/Gatti) but not sure which one yet. Keep putting too many in the shopping basket, taking them out and starting again.
    The cycle will continue probably for a while.

    I am sold on the Horst Stein Parsifal with Siefgried Jerusalem. Only one I have and love it. Have to watch it again, but so many others in my unwatched pile.

    and, after listening to the Roberta Peters Il Barbiere di Siviglia yesterday, decided I had to add the Battle/Domingo/Raimondi/Abbado recording to my collection:

    Couldn't help myself when I saw this for $5.41 shipped. Never was a fan of Te Kanawa, but she is in my new Messiah set (Solti) and I am starting to appreciate here from that. I guess though that I am just a fool for these sung-in-English sets though most don't stay on my player very long, I do occasionally revisit them.

    Yikes, sung in English? Anyway, please publish a review for us once you listen to it.
    And where did you get it at this price? It sells for $28.49 on Amazon (absurd price)

    Have you tried Bookbutler.com? Here it is for as low as $6.43 plus shipping. There is another listing with much higher prices under a different bar code. I found these bookbutler lists by searching music for the words: Eugene Onegin Chandos

    Hey, look what I found when I used slightly different search parameters:

    Immortal Performances. Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Eugene Onegin (Sung in English) [New York -- February 29, 1964: Leontyne Price, Rosalind Elias, Jess Thomas, William Dooley, Lili Chookasian, Gladys Kriese, Andrea Velis; Thomas Schippers]
    Says 3 disks. Even gives a UPC: 0027835743087 But I can't find it anywhere.
