    Fidelio is one of the great creations of a genius. When well performed it is totally riveting - catches you by the throat

    I do have it and it is a wonderful production. Much better picture quality on DVD and I have English subtitles. This is the set I have:
    "All of Italian opera can be heard in [Bellini's] "Ah! non creda [mirarti]."
    --Renata Scotto in "Scotto, More Than a DIva."

    Is there any word on this? It is on YouTube and I ripped it to mp3 but the quality isn't the best. I am really hoping Harmonia Mundi will release this.

    Are you listening via headphones on a swivel chair?

    (It sounds like you are getting the cord caught round your neck!)
