It's that time of year. Time for my holiday wish list:
The Met's Lucia di Lammermoor on DVD
With Anna Netrebko. (Watch out parents, this DVD is NOT RATED. And we never know what opera directors are going to do, do we?)
Karaoke machine pre-loaded with my favorite opera arias
Obviously, this item will take some coordination and savvy, but I have faith in you, readers! First, you will have to cleverly discern just what my favorite arias are. Then, you'll have to find instrumental tracks of those arias to load into a karaoke machine. (Oh, and you'll have to figure out if anyone still actually sells karaoke machines, because it's no longer 1994.)
To meet the doyenne behind Opera Chic
Opera bloggers need to stick together, yo.
This recording of Massenet's Werther
The head of John the Baptist from Salome
I'm bored with the one I currently have. We've grown apart. It's time to move on.
--- One of my holiday wishes has already come true: I will be spending some time in Seattle with our Artistic Director Dean! Stay tuned for my dispatches from the Pac NW.
