    Don't know Khovanshchina so did some investigating. This looked good with one reviewer saying "We have three big, scenery-chewing basses in the leading roles"



    In the end I've gone for this. Have I made the right choice - amfortas; Il_Penseroso?

    I'm afraid I can't be much help here--I only know the opera from this DVD version:



    It's probably the best available, but be aware that it does use the Shostakovich orchestration.

    again, not sure I'm doing the correct step, but I think I'm supposed to nominate 10 more operas, at this stage...


    Boito – Mefistofele
    Catalani - La Wally
    Donizetti - Anna Bolena
    Donizetti - Maria Stuarda
    Flotow – Martha
    Halévy - La Juive
    Meyerbeer - Les Huguenots
    Nicolai - Die Lustigen Weiber von Windsor
    Verdi – Nabucco
    Verdi - Luisa Miller

    it's all a bit confusing to me...!

    You're supposed to pick up to 5 operas in the following list, in order of your preference. See Almaviva's post above for a sample of how it's done. Once these 11 operas have been ranked, nominations for the next 11 spots opens up and you can nominate more operas then.

    -Bizet - Les Pêcheurs de Perles
    -Britten - Billy Budd
    -Busoni - Doktor Faust
    -Gluck - Alceste
    -Handel - Rinaldo
    -Handel – Theodora
    -Mussorgsky – Khovanshchina
    -Prokofiev - The Fiery Angel
    -Rameau - Castor et Pollux
    -Schreker - Die Gezeichneten
    -Verdi - Luisa Miller

    Sorry to trouble you again, Ballo, but are those in order of preference, or just alphabetical? You're supposed to rank your picks 1 through 5 at this stage.

    It's very confusing Ballo but the mods are usually gentle with us so don't worry too much. We pick 10 we like from the original list (excluding any which have already made it on to the definitive list). Then Gaston puts all the choices into a bucket, spins round three times, spits on his hands & comes up with another list. (I think that's how it happens - but not sure)

    We then choose our favourites in order of priority from the second list. If there's an opera we don't know or don't like we don't vote.
