    I was scoping that one out not too long ago and found prices to be rather steep. Hope you found a deal.

    That is a price that sometimes slows me down, but you do well averaging it to your Hollandar at $13.50 each!

    I earned about $3 in ebay bucks and it was burning a hole in my pocket, so I applied it to this. Not an opera but is operatic, so...

    1. Il Barbiere di Siviglia: Largo al factotum
    2. Il Barbiere di Siviglia: Dunque io son... Tu non m'inganni?
    3. Il Barbiere di Siviglia: Una voce poco fa - Io sono docile
    4. La Favorita: Ebben, cosi` si narra! - Quando le soglie paterne
    5. La Favorita: Fia dunque vero, oh ciel! - O mio Fernando
    6. La Favorita: Ma de' malvagi invan - Vien, Leonora
    7. The Tsar's Bride: Zachem ty? Znat' nye lyubish
    8. The Tsar's Bride: Vot da chevo ya dashla, Grigori
    9. The Tsar's Bride: S uma neydot krasavitsa
    10. Samson et Dalila: J'ai gravi la montagne

    I already have the Act 1 disk and it is awesome, so had to get the rest of it:

    I ordered this because everyone who has some Tannhauser sets needs a Paris version too:

    Remarkably, the first one arrived today and it was ebay, not Amazon Prime!

    Can't start it yet because I am in the middle of a great Meistersinger DVD. Maybe next week.
