    Luisa Miller is also currently available on Culturebox - I just finished watching it. Not bad, but Kunde lost the plot in "quando la sera al placido" and even cracked on a note, which was disappointing.

    Re Downloading - I use "Internet Download Manager". You have to buy the software but I have found it is worth it. Downloads from most sites but not culture box. Don't know if there is anything better out there???

    There are some free ones but Nat's suggestion is probably the best. My speed prohibits downloading.

    you can download from youtube with "4k downloader"
    you copy the url of the video in the program and the program downloads the file

    if you use firefox you can also use "download helper" which is an add-on of Firefox

    Thanks, I actually got the free one Annie recommended (rather than the paying one Nat recommended) and it worked quite well, actually. While I'm not that knowledgeable regarding this kind of stuff, compression rates, definition and such, this free one seemed to do the job very well with the big advantage that well, it is free - well, but yours seem to be free too, right? I couldn't see any difference in playing the downloaded file and the YouTube file, seemed to me to have the same image definition and the same sound quality. Mario, do you think your options are superior in any way, or is it enough to just go with the one Annie linked to?

    hi Luiz
    if yours have the same image definition and sound of the original you don't need anything else, it is impossibile to improve the quality of a download.

    4k downloader is free in its basic version, there is a premium version who allows you to download all the movies of a playlist with one click, and this version is not free, but it's not very expensive

The production by Richard Jones was some of the clearest story telling in a Handel opera I have ever seen, with great emotional impact, some amazingly virtuosic and moving puppet work, and the creepiest villain ever (brava Sonia Prina, your Polinesso made me feel quite queasy)...
    Excellent ballo and evil ba$tard Polinesso. Very good performances from all the cast.

    Thanks for that pointer.

    With all that Donizetti, much of which I have not seen? The thanks go your way, gracious lady.

    Well I can't practicably go through the 28 pages, so at the expense of a repeat, I'll post this excellent production of Pergolesi's La Serva Padrona (I could do without the extra antics of the two guys though, but the singing and set are very nice):


    There are other complete La Serva Padrona's out there, two I know of from the 1950s and one is sung in English. If there is interest I can try to find them again and post them. One stars Anna Moffo and she does a beautiful job. Most of the Anna Moffo one is available on You Tube with English Subtitles too.
