Pretty much agreeing with you there, Ruggiero! – Back and now of drinking age: the 1998 Handel “Alcina” at Opernhaus des Jahres, Staatsoper Stuttgart with Diana Haller (Ruggiero) and Agneta Eichenholz (Alcina), Stuttgart 2016. – Photo Credit: Martin Sigmund (Higher res at the Stuttgart Opernblog]
Dear Lord, now they have a blog, too (the theme of which will look somewhat familiar to you). As if my days had more hours to spend reading (I wish they did).
