I have seen quite a few takes from the DVDs.  They are not worth it.  On the other hand several live tapes are very much worth while.  I wonder if some of the remastered operas will be released seperately.

If they follow the same path as with the studio recordings, they will issue them individually.

I may be the last to find out, but WHHHHHHOOOOOOOOAH!

Excitement for me is tempered. I heard on the grapevine that Warner approached Pablo Berruti of Divina Records, whose releases are exemplary in every way. Unfortunately, Warner were not prepared to pay him a proper fee, so negotiations broke down. I rather worry that, for the ones that EMI issued, they will just reproduce the awful EMI transfers (generally copies of unworthy sources). For the rest, they will probably just copy either Divina or Myto. I may be wrong, of course.
