    "Mefistofele" with Opolais, Calleja and Pape arrived a few days ago. It's not an opera I know, apart from the main arias, but the lovely Joseph is appearing in it at Munich next year, so I want to see how I get on with it.

    I have the later one, good singing but horrible staging.
    The one from Zurich with Di Donato is a much better production and has a better overall cast. I saw it live and snapped up the Blu Ray when it came out. That would be my M e C top choice on Blu ray/DVD.

    Sometimes we still don't agree Conte, just like old times, good to see you again.

    Added this classic recording to my collection after seeing a great price for a good quality used copy: under 7 dollars total!
