    Straszny dwor!

    One of the first operas I heard, and one of my half-dozen favourites. Wonderfully tuneful, imaginative orchestration, great choruses and ensembles (the Mazurka!), beautiful arias (including one of the all-time best for bass).

    Family friends gave us a CD of opera highlights from a mid-'90s production; I bought the EMI / Kaspszyk CD a few years later.

    Here are some of the highlights:

    It was NickFuller posting on Straszny dwor back in 2016 that got me into this opera. In fact there was a video of an excellent production with English subtitles.
