Just forget about Carmen and check out that tie!

Also, who knew that there was a second volume to Mann’s “Death in Venice”, possibly called “Alive in Vienna, some years later”…?

  1. normally, I’m a big fan of the long (sometimes leather) coats and boots for Octavian, but this is an EXCELLENT alternative.

    Mostly, I’m here to post a hot tip. Clips of Cendrillon on youtube with Coote and DiDonato, snag it while it lasts.

    I saw this in house, and it was ravishing. White shirt + tux, mezzo snuggling, gorgeous singing from them both.


    1. thanks for the alert! this seems to be a good week, YT wise – first Serse, now Cendrillon… and really, where would we be without coloraturafan, who has uploaded many more extracts from the production?
