    I have all 24 Sonnambula recordings (if there are other commercial recordings please let me know) and of them all this is the one I would keep if I could only have one.

    Love this opera. I saw a semi-staged version at The Barbican in London. (Nat was there too). Was great fun with characters singing from different parts of the auditorium. I wish it had been videoed.

    I adore it too. I'm a big Odyssey fan and this captures the last part so well. And the music is divine. That concert was so lovely!

    So in the car today I started listening to what is my favourite scene in any opera - Brünnhilde telling Siegmund that he is soon to go to Valhalla, and Siegmund first trying to find out what it is like and then refusing because Sieglinde will have to stay behind. I simply couldn't leave it and had to sit in the car in the driveway until the scene was finished.

    Wagner is the only composer who can provoke a physical reaction in me - there are scenes where the hairs on my arms stand up, and this is one (Siegfried's death march is another). And what a cast - the first four mentioned below are some of my favourite singers. Does any one else think Anja Kampe is under-appreciated?

    Wagner: Die Walküre
    Nina Stemme (Brünnhilde), René Pape (Wotan), Jonas Kaufmann (Siegmund), Anja Kampe (Sieglinde), Ekaterina Gubanova (Fricka), Mikhail Petrenko (Hunding)
    Mariinsky Orchestra, Valery Gergiev

    This one isn't quite as good as his 2nd recording
    which also has magnificent sound.
