« Singing and silence | Main | Es ist kein Laut zu vernehmen »

This is very cool--the Bartoli Terfel Figaro. I know there are a lot of people looking for this.


The Met Figaro was around on DVD in Australia a few years ago, seems to have disappeared now. Singing was good, didn't much like the rough peasant characterization for Susannah and Figaro. (Hated Cecilia's red shoes, too, even if they were in period)

Given the cost, I assume you're not here - quite a lineup, including the lovely Marshall and the gorgeous Joseph!


No, even my extravagance does not run quite that far! Besides, with both of them on the ship at once, how would I know what to do with myself?


Wonderful!!!! You must watch the Barbiere with Florez and Di Donato, surely the best performances of these roles EVER!!!!


You could add a little Arabella to the Lisa della Casa brew to get it bubbling along very nicely, and you get George London sippets.
