    Default What Do You Think of THIS Opera?

    I thought I'd get this one off with the unusual.

    'unusual' of the production, that is?

    Sublime opera and lively production. It was a big hit in Handel's day right off the bat.

    In what way unusual?
    If you liked this one, do yourself a big favor and get the Treigle/Sills. Beverly sings "Se pieta" so beautifully it puts a lump in your throat. And the mother/son duet again is a stunning collaboration.
    Handel at his best.

    Great opera, good production (I saw it live with a different cast).

    Me too. I saw it at the Met 17 years ago and was thrilled by the stunning Sesto/Cornelia duet as sung by David Daniels and Stephanie Blythe.

    I thought this one would be a safe bet. Was their a better choice? (I got this about 12 years ago so there may be a better one since then.
