    Hello, I'm a new member as of 10 mins ago. I am going to rec. 500.00 next week and wish to add to a fledgling opera library. I am restricted to Blu-rays...Would you recommend La Gazzeta (Blu-ray)? Do you have any favorites in Blu-ray?
    Thank you!

    Welcome to TalkClassical, as far as I recall only Dynamic recorded this piece once in Brussels.
    That's as far as I can help, sorry.

    The La Gazzetta on Drnamic is EXCELLENT!!!!! It includes newly discovered music that is missing from the Rossini Opera Festival DVD from a few years ago. Also the spurious arias for Doralice and Madama La Rosa are cut that somehow got added to the score. I'm not sure if Rossini approved or had anything to do with their addition. Though they are attractive pieces. So it's all authentic Rossini... plus the newly discovered quintetto is alone worth the price of admission FIVE STARS!!!! The attractive production is updated, but it works! Good picture and sound! Highly recommended and reminds me that I need to give it a watch!

    This Friday Opera Rara will be offering 60% off for most of their catalogue. Good opportunity to grab some of their boxsets at bargain prices.

    I just visited the site. I am highly impressed with the sound quality of everything I sampled there. Great deals on the half off sale too. Sadly, Dinorah is out of stock, but there are many other great operas in stock at great sale prices.

    I'm finishing my Jenůfa challenge and I'm really eager to buy a recording even if I shouldn't do it yet.

    Why?

    Because it's not Mackerras!

    And that would not be normal in opera lovers since I still don't own any Mozart or R. Strauss recording. Why Janáček first?

    After Aida, I'll do a challenge of Borodin's Prince Igor and Mussorsky's Boris Godunov.



    I can't find any streaming place for the Emil Tchakarov Boris Godunov. Do you know where?
