    Cease and desist, my friend. There is no saving money when you're a committed opera fan. Just be content in becoming poor but fulfilled with all the opera!

    You're right.

    So, after contemplating your post, I took your advice to heart and went and bought a new recording of Armida (Rossini's)! I am listening to the one I have,

    Now you are talking! As long as you are not starving two young daughters like someone I know, it's OK to buy as many recordings as you want!

    Unfortunately world stocks sold out but I might have to buy download to get PDF libretto (that's a GBP 15 libretto but I did like it).

    A rom-com straight out of the school of Monteverdi and madrigals. I am not sure if the wee welease comes with a libretto which is a pity if it doesn't but still worth it for Cavalli fans. Otherwise let's hope ROH are making a DVD of their production (today?)

    Courtesy of Spotify (I'm starting to think subscribing to unlimited opera streaming service was not such a healthy idea)

    Another very good recording, this time sung in German by contralto Hilde Rössel-Majdan. A little tape farting (clayton technical term for whirp-whirp noise from tape) that is not as annoying as the narrative between scenes but I still give it a thumbs up.

    again, I talked myself here

    do you think I talk to much?

    I only ask because I can't hear myself through all the blah, blah, blah...

    never mind. Where was I?

    I lost myself

    A busy day today with my sister and brother in law in town for a brief stay on their way back to frozen Massachusetts after 3 weeks in Florida. Still managed to squeeze in:

    Callas is wonderful in this, but can't say I'm crazy about the opera. Maybe requires another listen...

    Then, sent family off to National Gallery of Art and then went for a walk for the first time in 3 days (I don't do below zero weather) and was on a Callas roll:

    This might be the best rendition of this I've yet heard.
