Hey! I'm off to see Met Opera's "L'Elisir d'Amore" tomorrow night at the Lincoln Center. This will be my third operas. It will be the last show of this opera this season. And it's feature Anna Netrebko, I've heard her name many times before and saw some short clips of her singing on TV. And that is one of the reason why I wanted to see this opera, because of her, to see and hear her live. I will be sitting all the way up in the Family Circle pretty much in the middle. I've heard and read that up there is best for sound, but far for a good view. Well, I'm OK with that for best sound... not that I could afford mid orchestra roll anyway Take care,Buddy
This is an opera I was able to attend on a trip to London. Austere by any standards, but this recording will involve you (at a modest volume level, ime, for an ambient stage and realistic location and size of the piano and singers) . . Britton's Turn of the Screw (Naxos). I think Naxos is a budget label. Sounds very transparent and believable to me, regardless.
How was Anna as Adina? I bet she looked good! This role is easily in her wheelhouse and she should have sounded good too. BTW, Family Circle is why they made opera glasses. I would rather be center Family Circle than side orchestra. How is Raymond Vargas' voice holding up? I love a good "Una furtiva lagrima." The last L'Elisir d'Amore I saw was at La Scala with Joyce DiDonato and Juan Diego Flórez. It was a great experience.
It's glorious music for sure. I am not familiar with the recording though. How is it?
