    So, I was listening to Lakmé for the first time, over about 3 days of commuting. And I was loving it, and kept thinking this sounds great but I had sure expected more faux-oriental exoticism... It turns out I was listening to La Juive THE WHOLE TIME. #OperaNewbMoments

    I had picked this set up for $7, since my French opera familiarity has been neglected. I figured some of the old recordings would sound pretty bad (and they do. Some of them are Edison Wax CylinderTM quality.), but it's definitely been worth $7. La Juive is great! Lakmé next week.

    Also, since there was no Massenet on that set, I grabbed this one for a paltry $5 and it's terrrrrific. The cast is pretty okay, I think?

    I know you don't like Wagner, Annie,
    but I love you anyway.

    I have the occasional listen to RW and my opera buddies keep telling me I should persevere but I just don't get him.

    If you can "get" Pelleas, you can get anything.

    Yeah well I have to confess an ulterior motive or shallowness! It's not exactly one of my favourites but Simon Keenlyside has been in the only two performances I've seen. 1st as Pelléas himself and 2nd time as Golaud.

    The secret to Pelleas is to let yourself drift on a lake of melodic fragments and allusions and not worry too much about what is making sense.
