Just found out that the Met’s production of Handel’s Rodelinda is available on DVD! I saw this live years and years ago – it was my first time hearing Andreas Scholl. And of course Renée Fleming as Rodelinda is no slouch either.
This is the upside to browsing Amazon when I should be writing a talk about Arthur Miller’s The Crucible. I guess I still have to write the talk, though. (Our theater department is performing the play, and so there’s a little university symposium where they bring in people from various fields to talk about it, and since I’m the resident pre-1700 American historian, I got recruited to talk about Puritanism and witchcraft.)
