Quote from: uffeviking on May 29, 2007, 09:24:44 AMIf you are looking for something different, but with the two best singers we have right now, try the EMI DVD of Ambroise Thomas's Hamlet. Simon Keenlyside in the title role, matched in talent, singing and acting with Natalie Dessay. They don't come any better, believe me! - I wrote a review at the old GMG, I'll look for it.

Quote from: marvinbrown on May 01, 2007, 06:37:41 AM Just ordered this recording of Un Ballo, I was surprised to learn that Karajan was supposed to conduct the VPO in this performance but passed away before the performance, Solti took over as conductor on short notice, the performance however comes highly recommended I always prefer Domingo over Pavarotti in Verdi's operas. Verdi's operas tend to have leading men who are either military men, womanizers, playboys or royal figures (kings, dukes etc.) Pavarotti never seems to look the part with his overweight body and short stature. Will report back once I see this performance marvin

Quote from: Greta on June 04, 2007, 07:46:38 PMWhere or how would it possible to rent opera DVDs? My local video stores have nothing of the sort. Not much demand around here I'm sure... Is there an online service (maybe Netflix?) that has these type of DVDs for rent?
