La Cieca has a copy of something from The Romantic Revolution. Hear for yourself. Click Who and why. I would be curious to know where he got it, but I don't tell my sources either.
This DVD from Glyndebourne of Manon Lescaut from 1997 is gorgeous. Adina Nitescu and Patrick Denniston, both singers I am unfamiliar with, are excellent. Ignore the opera in a box sets.
He is gorgeous, but I can't find a picture of him.
It was silly to say I was taking time off. Obviously I'm not. I think I'm an addict.
