    The DVD with Galina Gorchakova (Renata), Sergei Leiferkus (Ruprecht) is pretty good but you will find it creepy and disturbing.

    The train journey from London to Falmouth had the joys of a replacement bus service (yay). I was mostly reading (through wifi) but had time to listen to an old favourite for one and a half acts

    That recording is going to be Very difficult to ever best. I have also been dabbling with this but not enoguh yet to give a final judgement

    I do confess to already love the Marchesa's cabaletta and am a huge fan of the duet between the baron and La Rocca in act one. I have a strong feeling Un Giorno Di Regno is going to continue to grow on me despite its minor flaws.

    Hmmm, I better cautiously approach this one. Check out some You Tube clips. Maybe not for me, especially since I am not keen on the Kaufmann Parsifal cover with all the blood, or even the blood filled cup on the Boris Godunov (that part was actually silly, but the disturbing part was the person all bloody with torture that was shown briefly during the opera). Not into much blood and so Lucia, for example, would never work for me in that respect.

    In the Midwest here, Northern Michigan. Last two days we hit the negative digits. Ranging -3 to -20 Fahrenheit. Yuck.

    I should be happy that here in Detroit it has not gone much lower than -5 overnight. Problem is that it is hard for the dog to do her business if she can only be out a few minutes. Don't want her ears or feet to get frost bit and I had her out about 10 minutes in +10. Her ears were cold for quite a while after coming back in the house.

    Whoa, sorry. Way off topic. So what am I listening to now? This highlights set (or actually they may have only performed/recorded this much of it):

    Not blood, it's more psychologically creepy. But, yes, do your homework.

    Weren't you the lucky one!! Listening to opera certainly helps in situations like this.

    Hope you learn to love it like I do.

    This morning, while I ponder the day (not quite as frigid, but still really cold...). I'm thinking today will be a good day to make a Costco run :

    I don't have the Gruberova and Baltsa but should give it a listen some time. Maybe it is on You Tube.

    I also have Maazel (Cossotto), Campanella (Ricciarelli /Montague), and Patane (Sills/Baker).
