    Today there was another Russian fairytale which I know is also A SoFa favourite. I think it's the cricket; it's made me want to listen to some fairytales.

    Handel is one of my top four, glad there is another fan to join the OL Baroque enthusiasts.

    Yes, I like this very much. Perhaps more so from watching the production for which our Canadian friend translated and added surtitles.

    Anyone interested in seeing it, please search for The Demon / A Nervous Gentleman on the sheep channel. I lost the link but hope it's still out there.

    Melodiya record label have a fantastic catalogue and their releases are really well engineered. I think if they were able to publish with the text in Russian and translations, they could command prices of interest for them and also increase sale numbers.

    C'mon Melodiya; go from good record label to great!

    This is also a wonderful production, Dima on top form and the sexiest demon imaginable

    La Sonnambula, La Sonnambula, ... La Sonnambula, with occasionally something else thrown in. For a week now I can hardly stop listening to La Sonnambula. I get bugged like this now and then.

    I've given up on streaming due to bad interweb connection. If it's not half song, circles, half song, circles continuously then it's most of the opera then "you have no internweb connection" just at the denouement.

    In this case though, I might give it another try.

    I fall into all three categories (maybe less of the good bit); call me a mixed bag of nuts. My favourites are

    and of course

    Name:  Giulio Cesare - Glyndebourne, William Christie, David McVicar.jpg

    and most of the oratorios
