A place for you to review opera cd's and dvd's
for the community here.
Ones you have been happy with and ones you have been disappointed with.
I think this thread can be helpful to our opera fans here.
Please tell us about your joys and disappointments
with operas you've purchased and why.

I'll start.
I just got the Barenboim Parsifal on the Warner reissues.
Very disappointed with it.
While the performance is good, the dynamic range is so wide that if you're listening to an average volume
part the louder parts will blow you out of your seat.
Can't listen to it without constantly adjusting the volume.
A deal breaker for me,

Who's next?
