    While listening to some YouTube clips of Allan Clayton yesterday, I came upon this rendition of Handel's "Where e're you walk" sung by the wonderful Welsh tenor Richard Lewis and was just bowled over. I searched for a complete recording of Semele with him, but it doesn't seem as though one exists. Too bad, because this is just gorgeous.

    I'd say, the reason why few know about Haydn's operas is that he wasn't very good at composing operas. The only one I know from him is quite forgettable. Being a great composer doesn't equal being a great *opera* composer. Beethoven would agree. Even though his Fidelio is actually quite good, he didn't think so (which is why he kept revising it, and never tried again to compose a second opera).

    I don' know how to post this extract but, if you havent watched the Callas/ Gobbi Tosca ROH circa 1964, it is breathtaking- literally in Gobbi's case as he gasps his last very tunefully!! 2 twentieth century greats! its Act 2 of course and Scarpia bears an uncanny likeness to Onassis! No wonder she sticks the knife in with relish!!!!

    Francisco Araiza established an international reputation singing roles by Mozart, Rossini, and Donizetti, but later in his career, began moving into some of the lyric-dramatic repertoire -- he recorded Max in Der Freischütz and Hagenbach in La Wally. He sings Florestan’s aria in concert here, and his performance makes one wish he’d had the opportunity to record this role as well. (He did appear in some staged productions of Fidelio.) He's up to the technical challenges and sings with a great deal of feeling.

    Actually Haydn operas are growing on me. They are certainly a lot of fun!

    Just wait until you are sitting and watching Wotan's Farewell (Die Walküre, Act III). It has to be one of the most powerful scenes in all theater. The first time I saw the opera, and with surtitles - so we knew what Wotan was singing, I had tears rolling down my face that wouldn't stop. Puccini? A few sniffles (well, except for La Boheme...). Wagner is the real thing.

    I hear you; your good taste and great knowledge regarding the Baroque and Classical periods are credentials that give weight to your opinion. So, I'm ready to experiment. What do you recommend?
