    Rameau makes me want to do pirouettes, cartwheels and dance with gay abandon. This is a problem if you hear it in your head and your're also walking down the high street (not so bad if you're on the towpath but be weary of the waters edge).

    An excellent first Italian opera for sure.

    That's how I feel when I listen to my favorite eighteenth-century punk rock band: The Rameaunes.

    Given the latest developments in Brazil's politics I'm deep into my self-alienation program in order to keep living as sane as possible. It consists basically in uninterruptedly alternating between opera, nature documentaries — cute, David Attenborough-ish ones, not the ones that remind me how we're screwing everything up — and reality television so that I don't have the time to read the news.

    Continuing with the Verdi/Amfortas purchase theme, I was listening to another "Aida". At the time of purchase, I was looking for the Gardelli but then (and so I'll guess now as well) it was very difficult to find unless I traded one of my kidneys for a copy. So all the more congratulations to Amfortas for his bargain finds.

    Verdi: Attila
    Samuel Ramey (Attila), Cheryl Studer (Odabella), Giorgio Zancanaro (Ezio), Neil Shicoff (Foresto), Ernesto Gavazzi (Uldino), Giorgio Surian (Leone)
    Coro del Teatro alla Scala, Milano & Orchestra del Teatro alla Scala, Milano, Riccardo Muti

    Unfamiliar with other works I can not make comparisons but this is dramatic and it has Samuel Ramey...

    Samuel Ramey is the best Attila because he has the right sort of chest.

    From day one, this site has been about opera singers having the right sort of chest.
