Funny some of the things that turn up when you get back from a vacation. In addition to a large spider in my bathtub I found a DVD of Beethoven’s Fidelio (not in the bathtub) that I checked out of the university library a while back and forgot about. I think it’s kind of overdue at this point but I figure I should watch it before I take it back – so this is the plan.
Also, I discovered that the library at my new university owns the Glyndebourne production of Rodelinda (the one with Antonacci as Rodelinda) so I will happily get a chance to see that in the near future. My current university’s library owns the Roeschmann/Chance/Bayerische Staatsoper one instead. I’m sort of curious as to how these library acquisition decisions get made, but that’s probably another question for another day.
