My birthday came early this year: Over at Casa della Cieca, the hostess and Jungfer Marianne Leitmetzerin (“Lass er das nicht weg!”) have shared the recent Zurich “Alcina” (full audio). Remember to bring flowers, and head over here.

My only regret is not being able to see those Sta nell’Ircana push-ups. I’ll take the vocal prowess, though.

(And in case anyone was wondering: no, I’m still not over Malena Ernman in a suit. Any suit.)
