Opera Overload

Help.  I just can't do it all. Things that went on this weekend:

  1. Carmen streamed from Orange with Jonas Kaufmann.  I might still be able to watch this in delay on

  2. Arabella with Anja Harteros streamed from Munich.  The streams from Munich are a one time shot, so I watched it.  It was the best choice in my opinion.  Harteros brought her fully into modern life IMHO.

  3. Alcina with Philippe Jaroussky was supposed to stream on the Opera Platform but came up :(.  They apologized but is that enough?  I might be able to find an alternate source for this.

  4. PBS ran the Iolanta/Bluebeard in the middle of the night.  I DVRd it and watched Iolanta again.  I need to see Bluebeard's Castle for the first time and must set aside a time for it.

Occasionally I should get up and go outside.

Speaking of overload, I went to Des Moines the weekend before last to see "a fanciulla del West." If you're interested, I have a link up on my "temporarily revived" Opera Blog.

To watch it? Why not? I love fanciulla.
