    I’m still waiting for my next crop of exciting DVDs to come through – I did get this which is finally out (it was only available as part of a box). In this verismo zarzuela, the dashing bandit hero is actually sung by Juan Pons and Domingo is the stay at home matador who loses the girl. I liked it until the last act – too much graveside wailing for me.



    Meanwhile I’ve been getting through my YouTube and Vimeo backlog:

    Carmen from Orange, 2004, with Alagna, Uria-Monzon, Tezier and Anselem, on Youtube. A nice traditional production. Uria-Monzon has to be the most classically beautiful Carmen on screen, and she allows her character some unexpected moments of tenderness and complexity, but unfortunately I’m not that keen on her voice. Alagna manages boyish charm and lovely diction but not much more. Tézier sings Escamillo like a god but has all the charisma and sexual magnetism of yesterday’s haddock



    Don Pasquale from Paris 2012, with Alessandro Corbelli, Eva Mei. Corbelli is my favourite buffo singer-actor, and navigating his way through pompous self-satisfaction, resigned dejection and some killer patter songs with great timing and diction. Evan Mei is also very fun and cute in this. A good production. I like it better than the Met one, mainly because John Del Carlo was such a disappointment in the latter. Unfortunately the video has been taken down.

    This is a solid production of Der Freischütz with nothing shocking or odd, well sung. It would be a good starting point for anyone wanting to get to know the opera. Unfortunately I can’t find a legit. version on DVD.



    Vinci’s Artaserse, with Philippe Jaroussky, Max Emanuel Cencic, Franco Fagioli, Valer Barna-Sabadus, Yuriy Mynenko, Daniel Behle. Wow, this is amazing stuff, really gorgeous music and a beautiful production (involving a hell of a lot of mad feathers, Aksel) and some incredibly virtuosic singing, showcasing the next generation of counter tenors alongside the current kings. Everyone is a bloke in this one, even the girls. Cencic looks like the Queen as a woman, but I’d turn gay for Barna-Sabadus in his little dress....
    (hang on, wait a minute…). Anyway, a DVD please, soon!

    A lot of Donizetti...especially his English Renaissance-era operas...

    And I've REALLY grown to love Elina Garanca's singing even more than before; granted I'm no expert on technique, but she just sounds golden in so much of what she sings (and when she performs with Netrebko it's a brilliant pairing.)

    You can watch her for quite some time, while you hear the opera in youtube:



    I haven't noticed, though. You know my motto: "Il vero melomane č colui che, udendo una donna cantare in bagno, si avvicina al buco della serratura e vi pone l'orecchio"...
