It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

Ariadne Obnoxious - I like that opera too!

I'm surprised to discover that the only recording I have right now is the Kempe/SkD recording with Janowitz as Ariadne - which I've had and enjoyed for a long time, in both its LP and CD incarnations.

I once played a recital in a private home with one of the singers on the Solti recording. (I forget whether it was the Naiad or Dryad - LOL!) Anyway, she told me some of the gossip about that recording, especially the difficulties that Price had recording her big aria ("Es gibt ein Reich").

I forgot how deluxe the casting was on that Levine/VPO recording, with Barbara Bonney as Naiad and Dawn Upshaw as Echo.
