    Thank you, thank you, thank you to you and Smorg. Does this mean that the DVD is now out?

      argh, can you feel my frustration, i’m stuck at the scanner with a computer without speakers! so i can’t listen to this while scanning… no, i think dvd is not out yet, but they’re broadcasting it in europe. we can only thank carosaxone endlessly for making the clips available to us 🙂

  2. That Di cor mio is incredible. Harteros owns the stage and everything on it. She owns every note that she sings. Such mastery, so befitting of Alcina.

    1. Do you realise you are single-handedly responsible for bringing everything in the Eyes household to a complete standstill? 😉

    2. Please Miss, I’ve watched the required number of times, ( I think it is 200 isn’t it ? ) please may I join the Official Harteros Fanclub?

    3. Now I know I was right to be disappointed at her non-appearance at the Barbican.
