La Cieca is sure that the cher public (pictured), just like all other red-blooded Americans or foreign nationals, will spend the day today doing their “Cyber Monday” shopping. Your doyenne recommends you peruse Amazon for your general needs and, for live recordings, Opera Depot, who are offering a whopping 60% discount on their entire collection for today only.
It’s a Wagner lover’s dream! Our friends at Opera Depot are offering a 50% discount on all Wagner recordings, including a new collection of “tantalizing, but incomplete” historical recordings. (And while you’re perusing the site’s offerings, you can enjoy a free download of a complete Lohengrin from Bayreuth featuring Leonie Rysanek, Astrid Varnay and Sandor Konya!) Hurry, though, because this sale lasts only through midnight on Monday!
Now’s the time to fill those gaps in your collection, cher public: our friends at Opera Depot are offering a 60% discount on all German opera recordings, including of course Wagner. (Speaking of which, the site currently offers a free download of a complete Ring cycle from Bayreuth in 1968…)
Don’t delay, though: these prices are only in effect through midnight on Monday!
In honor of “Talk Like a Pirate Day” La Cieca invites you, the cher public, to share reminiscences (and, where applicable, YouTube clips) of your favorite pirate recordings.
La Cieca and DeCaffarrelli unanimously hail Trubadur as winner of the “Ladies in the Dark” vocal ID competition.
