Radio broadcast, nov 2007 (thanks Stray!)

Edit: in response to larks’ and owls’ mutually inclusive interest, 2 more clips are added to round out Act3. I really like the conductor’s take, as someone put it on the internet: “very fresh”.

        I think they poured it all out on NY roads this winter.

        Oh and once again, a fine editing job 🙂

    Also much appreciated by those who are larks rather than owls!

      based on popular interest, 2 more clips added. Harteros made her debut in 2003 actually, with DR also making her debut as Susanna! but i don’t think there was a broadcast of that… this (and hopefully another batch (hint hint Stray ;-)) is from 2007 with lots of nice reviews on internet… and *quite* a stellar cast! Kate Lindsay also made her Cherubino on this run.

        It is on the docket 🙂

        That 2003 one fell between the cracks, unfortunately. It was a pre-Sirius season and it was a short run in October, so no Saturday broadcast. Urgh.
