    Currently having a Wagner obsession (the first opera by him I hear): A Das Rheingold conducted by Janowski.
    An Il Trovatore conducted by Giulini and Les Troyens with Vickers.

    Making my way through the Met Lepage Ring cycle on DVD. Making slow progress as i never seem to get enough time!

    Have Klaus Florian Vogts Lohengrin (the rat one) waiting to watch more of too.

    Feel in the mood for some Don Giovanni. Will probably watch the Amsterdam one with Ingo Metzmacher conducting. A strange production released a few years back as a nice Trilogy of Cosi, Le nozze and Don Giovanni. Always good fun to watch!

    Also on CD just got Cecilia Bartoli's new disc "mission". Not my usual type of music, too early period but might be soothing in the car.

    Hello Ralph & welcome to the forum.

    I'm re-visiting Olivo e Pasquale



    One of Donizetti's early ones & a lovely description by 'LindoroRossini' who uploaded this to YouTube.

    There is nothing quite like having knee surgery and listening to Wagner. (Or is that surgically listening to Wagner's knee? O Percocet, Percocet, wherefore art thou Percocet? )

    The wonderful new Bergs Wozzeck from the Bolshoi with Teodor Currentzis conducting and production by Dmitri Tcherniakov. I had previously watched it on a long flight on my laptop but watching on a big tv is amazing. I have many cd versions of this opera and a few DVDs but i had forgotten how violent and disturbing an opera it is. Wonderful production and really good singing. The Wozzeck (Georg Nigl) is lighter in voice than some others but acts the part very well.

    That and some Rigoletto i think -in that kind of mood!

    Being in Moscow at the moment, I got excited seeing that and looked with confusion at the Bolshoi website and didn't see Wozzeck in their repertoire, finally realizing that by "new", you meant the DVD of the Bolshoi production of two seasons ago. Alas...
