    Meistersinger truly matures like a fine wine the more you listen. I am watching it this week but I'm not addicted.

    I am still quite addicted to Tristan, far more dangerous addiction than Meistersinger as the emotional toll it takes can't be healthy. I have 9 recordings, had 10 last week but destroyed and threw one out in a fit of rage (very disagreeable video direction).

    The only cure for Meistersinger-mania is Tristan und Isolde.
    Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.

    Art is never chaste. It ought to be forbidden to ignorant innocents, never allowed into contact with
    those not sufficiently prepared. Yes, art is dangerous. Where it is chaste, it is not art.

    What is the cure for Tristan und Isolde-mania?

    Unsre Liebe?
    Tristans Liebe?
    Dein' und mein',
    Isoldes Liebe?
    Welches Todes Streichen
    könnte je sie weichen?

    Sorry Couchie but its terminal... no known cure.

    Large doses of Die Zauberflöte, Don Giovanni, and Le Nozze di Figaro may lead to a degree of remission and a temporary relief from symptoms... but eventually the mania will raise its ugly head again.

    Try a twelve-step group. There is one for everything. Maybe also look into the twelve-step group for compulsive shoppers :-)

    And I thought my dozen recordings (LP, CD, and DVD) of Fidelio, including its original version, were an addiction. Seems I have nothing on mamascarlatti's Don Giovanni craving and bigshot's Ring habit.

    Come to think of it, there are a few more recordings of Fidelio I really ought to acquire . . .
