A Great Operatic Resource

It doesn't get much better than this.
Unless you go here.
Who'd a thunk it?
BTW - there is a rumor rampant that John Corigliano's The Ghosts of Versailles is going to be revived.
Ghosts of Versailles was the first opera I ever saw in its entirety. Friends of mine had heard I was going to design my first opera, and I had never seen one. So we watched it on video, and I distinctly remember then telling me that "all operas aren't like this". Well, I LOVED it. And immediately thought Teresa Stratas and Hakan Hakengaard were IT. (What is Hakengaard doing now, anyway?)
PS - Feel better Ms. Horne.
Oh? The first opera I designed? Le Nozze di Figaro.

Ok I have to be honest, I have no idea what the Ghosts thing is, opera wise, but just the title sounds fantastic. Now im going to have to look it up...
