I put together a video just for a bit of fun today, looking at the standard “warhorse” operas that opera companies tend to throw at us year after year, and offering some alternative operas that could be offered in their place.

Hey, folks! I wanted to put together a compilation of arias from a unique part of opera history, French grand opera. Today, from that genre, we’re going to hear great tenor arias.

On the occasion of Sondra Radvanovsky‘s role debut in Roberto Devereux, I thought this would ba a good opportunity to put put together a compilation of some of my favorite artists singing the fiendishly difficult final scene of this opera.

In anticipation of the Met’s revival this evening of I puritani, I thought it might be nice to take a look back at a few archival videos. In terms of commercial videos, there isn’t much out there, so once again I look to those great old pirated videos for inspiration.

With the Met season soon to finish, I am sure many will want to unwind with a little after party/masked ball.
