    If that doesn't work, you might look for a good production of Don Carlos..

    I guess you've never tried to shell a whole bag of pistachios and then cram the contents of the entire bag in your mouth all at once? No?

    And again, I return to my sad refrain: I think I might be alone in the Venn intersection of movie marathon participants and Ring Cycle fans, and doing a movie marathon by yourself is just not the same.

    It's Anna Netrebko's Verdi album. Found it on her facebook, available for 1 week only.

    I'm impressed.

    Yes! Very nice. Third time it was posted to some thread or other, but that just shows everyone has been impressed!

    Isn't that what meal breaks are for?

    No one escapes the Spanish Inquisition! Remember Torquemada's golden rule: those who refuse to recant are burned with slow-burning green wood!

    I am very excited about this new production of Die Tote Stadt, with Klaus Florian Vogt and Camilla Nylund. The production by Kasper Holten looks good too:

    This is good news! I've wanted to find a recording of this opera, but was picky about cast members. Can't get much better than Vogt and Nylund (unless it's Kaufmann and Nylund.) Sorry, couldn't resist . . .

    Kaufmann in this role, no way, much as I would love it from the acting and eye candy point of view. The tessitura is simply too consistently high and kind of light - he'd be crooning 50% of the time. In fact it is really hard to find anyone who can cope - except for KFV, of course, who was born to sing this (I have him on CD and I'm very happy with it).

    I'm not familiar enough with the opera to know what the range of Paul's music is. Previous recordings of the opera had the likes of Kollo, James King, Stefan Vinke, and Torsten Kerl in the part, all of whom sang/have sung the heavy Wagner Heldentenor roles. So I figured the Jonas would be able to tackle it. But your description of the music as high and light makes me glad I never purchased the recordings with any of the aforementioned gents. This new one will be exactly right.
