  1. Wonderful music.Many thanks Chris. I had not heard the Rossini before but would like to see it live. The Verdi is always worth a listen especially on a wet morning.

  2. Wonderful, Chris – made me want to rush out a see Verdi-Boito’s Otello again. The only time I saw it for real was at the Grand in 1996, in the days when Welsh Nat Opera used to perform in Swansea – a marvellous production as I remember it and one of the best things WNO ever did. I can still see Donald Maxwell’s Iago.
