On with my Met on Demand subscription. I am watching Strauss's Ariadne auf Naxos with Kathleen Battle, Tatiana Troyanos, James King and Jessye Norman. These are all singers that I loved. You've never seen anyone wail the composer better than Tatiana Troyanos. I miss her.
And no one wails anything better than Jessys Norman. And in case you prefer coloratura, we have Kathleen Battle in her prime. This is a must see. James Levine conducts. If you look carefully, you will see Barbara Bonney and Dawn Upshaw.
The original film posted here has been withdrawn. To view go to Met on Demand.
