    How'd I miss this when I was on my Sills craze? It is not an opera I am that fond of. But perhaps I should get a second copy. My only copy is Eva Mei (CD and DVD).

    Verdi- Un Ballo in Maschera

    Splendid production! This opera is really growing on me. I love the overture, and the sharp contrast between Riccardo's light-hearted attitude and the menacing conspirator chorus in the first act

    Actually, I turned it off before the First Act was even finished. It had nothing to do with Renee Fleming (who looked amazing) and everything to do with the fact that it turns out I didn't like the music one bit.

    I turned on Rigoletto instead, and I'm enjoying that one a lot more.
