    I haven't bought any new opera for ages but will be seeing Káťa Kabanová next year and it's not an opera I know so I'm starting my homework early. I read our reviews and this version got the thumbs up so have ordered it.

    With a significant birthday approaching, I am looking at hitting up Presto Classical for the upcoming La Favorite, Giovanna D"Arco and the ROH's Boheme (like I need another Boheme!)

    Best to order before month's end -- I think their opera sale lasts until then.

    Oooh! How exciting! I'm surprised though as I thought you had every opera blu-ray on the market.

    Am I correct in assuming that the Giovanna d'Arco and Lohengrin feature La Bellissima as the leading lady?

    There is a recent issue with Netrebko which is musically excellent and there is a forthcoming version due in September (with a different cast, obviously).

    If you stay away, you'll end up craving opera more (you'll miss it) and spending more. You'll see.
