    Did anyone hear the Thaïs bdcst today from São Carlos de Lisboa? I am listening to it now. I don’t know any of the singers, but I believe some of them have sung at Opera Holland Park, Grange Park Opera and Opera North -- terra incognita for me, but I am enjoying listening to these singers and this performance on my replay right now.
