Quality opera recordings at budget prices . . .
Dido & Aeneas (St James Baroque Players, Bolton)
"This is one of my three favourite recordings of this beautiful opera. The others are Christie's (B000005EDK) and Jacobs' (B00008NF42)."
Blow: Venus and Adonis; Organ Voluntaries
"Purcell was undoubtedly influenced by Blow's masterpiece, which was ahead of it's time - especially the stunning final act, which can be considered progressive even in today."
Purcell - King Arthur (Le Concert Spirituel)
"This semi-opera deserves more frequent staging (with dialogue). Try "The Fairy Queen" as well (B0000E5P9A/B000063TRK)."
Georg Frideric Handel: Acis and Galatea
"A delightful little English masque/opera. Try Galliard's "Pan and Syrinx" too (B0008ENHVW)."
"With Della Jones, Robert Lloyd, Norma Burrowes and Anthoney Rolfe-Johnson!"
"I'd sooner recommend the Minkowski (B00005YVOR) despite it's relative expense because it's simply one of the most wonderful Handel recordings available."
"Varied and highly engaging (catchy) arias, electric conducting/playing and recitatives. Dramatically taut, and sung with great conviction. Try "Rinaldo" (B000E0VNZW) and "Imeneo" (B00011MK5G) too."
Lampe: Pyramus and Thisbe / Flute Concerto
"A mock opera. Try "The Ephesian Matron", an operetta by Dibdin, too (B000002ZRO)."
Gluck - Orphée et Euridice (1774 Paris Version)
Mozart: Die Entführüng aus dem Serail
"Lynne Dawson is especially lovely in this. And though I'm not normally a fan of Hogwood's conducting, the orchestral sound is wonderful. Try "The Magic Flute" too (B0007SK9MO)."
Mozart: Don Giovanni
Beethoven: Fidelio, Opera in English
Rossini - The Barber of Seville [Opera in English]
"Marvellous. Also try "The Elixir of Love" by Donizetti (B00000K2FF)."
Bellini: La sonnambula
Saffo (Benini, Ireland Nso, Baronchelli, Bertagnolli)
"Try it with Leyla Gencer in the title role too (B000EQ5Q4A)."
"Unique, attractive, touching."
Boughton: The Immortal Hour
"Spellbinding. A forgotten masterpiece of English opera. You'll be quite taken by surprise. Try Lloyd's "Iernin" also (B0000049NR)."
Holst: At the Boar's Head/The Wandering Scholar
"Two fun little chamber operas. Also try Vaughan Williams' far more serious "Riders to the Sea" (B00000DOCY)."
Vaughan Williams: Sir John in Love
"Wow! This deserves regular staging. Ravishing, buoyant, fun."
Lennox Berkeley: A Dinner Engagement
"Witty libretto with music to match. Try "Ruth" too. Try Walton's "The Bear" as well (B000000ATW/B00004YU8J)."
"A highly effective setting of a disturbing tale by Byron based on a true story."
Stevens - The Shadow of the Glen (opera) / The True Dark (song cycle)
"Excellent. Try Dove's hilarioys "Flight" too (B0001XLVXG)."
