    While the wife is out, at a volume where it sounds like the gypsys have set up camp in the neighbouring cricket field:

    Hi everyone!
    Although I'm kind of new to the Opera world, I'd say I listen to A LOT lately.
    Since I'm kind of new, as I already said, I listen to the most iconic pieces, you kknow, if they're iconic, they're most likely PRETTY good haha.
    So, this is what I've been listening to lately:
    - La Traviata - Giuseppe Verdi
    - Las bodas de Fígaro - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
    - La bohème - Giacomo Puccine
    -Carmen - Georges Bizet
    - Rigolletto - Giuseppe Verdi
    - Aida - Giuseppe Verdi

    And that's pretty much it. I look forward to read what are your favorite pieces. See you all later!
    Thank you all for your attention

    Welcome to OperaLively! My absolute all time favorite opera is Bellini's La Sonnambula!

    Welcome to the forum, sebasgomez! I enjoy many of the same operas you do, but my favorite is Beethoven's Fidelio. I like it with more lyrical voices in the two leading roles instead of the heavy dramatic Wagnerian types that were often cast in these parts during much of the 20th century.

    Interesting. I never thought about it that way. I like your approach. So do you have a handfull or especially good ones in the lyrical voices?

    This is actually a very delightful opera. Conductor Pierre Stoll on this recording.

    I think you have all of my favorites. Of course, there are the three with Jonas Kaufmann (Nina Stemme still hadn't moved into Hochdramatische territory when she sang Leonore at the Lucerne Festival in 2009); the Masur/Leipzig Gewandhaus early '80s recording with Jeannine Altmeyer and Siegfried Jerusalem (whose voice was essentially lyric, even if he did sing some of the heaviest Wagnerian rep); the version with Gabriela Benaĉková and Anthony Rolfe-Johnson; and that tortoise-paced Knappertsbusch one from the early '60s woth Sena Jurinac and Jan Peerce. Your latest acquisition, with Angela Denoke and Jon Villars, would probably fit, as well.

    Thanks. I do have all of these. Next Fidelio listening binge, I'll have to focus on these 5.
