What Are You Listening to this Weekend?

Yay Friday! Since I neglected to listen to any opera last weekend and my ears have finally recovered, this weekend will begin with Piotr Beczala's Salut!, followed by The Tales of Hoffmann which I found in a box of old records while cleaning out the garage (I knew it would be worth my time).

A co-worker who knows I'm on a John Adams kick let me borrow her DVD of The Death of Klinghoffer. I'm sure you know by now that I'm not a fan of watching anything operatic on tv, but apparently this is a film version of the opera which could be good, could be bad, but most probably good since my co-worker has good taste. I'm curious. I'm a little nervous. I'm stocked up on Jiffy-pop, Red Vines, and should I need it, some beer.

What are your listening plans this weekend?

Smorg is indulging in an air-check of 'Samson et Dalila' from Salzburg Festival 2003 (Domingo and Borodina)... and must find time for a DVD of Busoni's 'Doktor Faustus' from Zurich Opera 2006 because my pop will be quizzing me about it afterward... :o( (I hope it isn't another one of those 12 tone horrors!).

Happy listening! :o)
