Quote from: Lisztianwagner on May 15, 2023, 02:34:21 PMAn awesome choice! Kempe's recording is the first Lohengrin I've ever listened.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on May 20, 2023, 01:57:36 PMListened to a broadcast from the Met today of Mozart's Don Giovanni. Made time to accompany it with the libretto (for the first act anyway). Enjoyed it overall and enjoyed the interviews during the intermission.When I looked at the Met's website, I was pleased to see that they had some videos and photos from that opera performance. If interested, you can check it out here: https://www.metopera.org/season/2022-23-season/don-giovanni/PD

Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on May 22, 2023, 04:15:16 AMOh, nice! I haven't been to one of those Met opera "Live" performances in years. I should check out the schedule. By the way, how packed was the theater?PD
Quote from: Wendell_E on May 23, 2023, 08:29:49 AMI see them in Daphne, Alabama, and the theatre's never packed. Maybe 20-25 at the most. I think it was about 15 for Don Giovanni. There were only two of us at Rosenkavalier this season, but there were technical difficulties and we both got refunds even for concession items. There's one more this season, on June 3rd, the new production of Die Zauberflöte conducted, like Don Giovanni, by Nathalie Stutzmann. My least favorite of the big seven Mozart operas, but with Stutzmann and in interesting-looking production I'll definitely be going.This summer's encores are unusually interesting, though I already have all of the but Barbiere on DVD:July 26Philip Glass's AkhnatenAugust 2Verdi's Il TrovatoreSondra Radvanovsky, Marcelo Álvarez, Dmitri Hvorostovsky.

Quote from: ritter on May 25, 2023, 05:49:13 AMRevisiting Rossini's Bianca e Falliero, a melodramma (with happy end) to a libretto by Felice Romani, which was the last opera Rossini composed for La Scala in Milan (where it was premiered in 1819). Starry cast of Marilyn Horne, Katia Ricciarelli, Chris Merritt et al., conducted by Donato Renzetti, and recordad live at the 1986 Pesaro Festival.Some wonderful moments, but also some long quarters of an hour...
