    You know how you have that listening experience that really starts to make an opera click with you? That is what I am having right now with Verdi's Macbeth. I am listening to the Muti recording. Fiorenza Cossotto is "my" Lady Macbeth! It's really a great interpretation, and the other roles are done very well also.

    With Milnes and Carreras, that production ticks the box of two members at least here! I haven't listened to that one yet but must do so. Until that time I'm in the Abbado camp with Verrett who is a powerful Lady Macbeth.

    Inspired by Hoffmann's grand European tour, I was going to watch the Orfeo ed Euridice Havelka film with Bejun Mehta but instead went to the Neumann recording. Both are very good.

    Add Raimondi and it ticks my box too.

    Yay it's the weekend - I went to market to stock up on full-fat Jersey milk (BYO glass bottles), walnut cheese, German sourdough bread, unsprayed mandarins, free range eggs, and super-fresh fish and veggies - now time to huddle round the fire with this:

    Hurrah for tenore forte (aka shouty) Del Monaco and Otello, a fantastic recording very worthy of the label "legendary recordings".

    ...

    Inspired by Sonata's Verdi run, I decided to listen to Macbeth but as usual took a wrong turn at the tea cabinet and ended up here:

    That‘s not a wrong turn, a mere detour. Macbeth tomorrow!

    Don Carlos in English


    far from the best but I enjoy listening once in Enlish when I can, helps me remember the libretto much better than simply reading it

    This is a wonderful recording that is going to the top of my list for favorite Sonnambula sets:


    Out of 21 sets my favorites are (noted by the singer for Amina):

    1. Gruberova
    2. Aliberti
    3&4. Tied for now: Scotto and Moffo

    Musical style of this reminds me strongly of La Fanciulla del West:
