The Ditz and The DVD

It is finally happening – the Mingardo/Galou-led “Incoronazione di Dario” under Dantone is out on DVD and it looks hilarious.

Hello, Anik’s holiday season Wishlist!

(not to self: this will not help with our current case of Mingardo fever. Then again, why would we want help on that front?)

Thank you, Lang, for the alert!

  1. yayyyy!!!

    oh, and it’s time for me to put the radio broadcast undercover. i got a message from Dynamics asking me to remove the radio broadcast because they have exclusive rights.. so i’ll just move it “unlisted”.. though i thought radio broadcast has nothing to do with their recording (they recorded the dvd 5 days later when Dehggi and I were in the haus, while the radio was on opening night… but i don’t want any trouble..)

            1. Perhaps Dynamic also offers dowloads? If not, those of us buying DVD copies can help out those who do not have DVD players.

        1. Good news on the sound front, then!! And Mingardo stomping and frowning is a delight already in the trailer.

          1. i was majorily giggling just watching her again. her facial expressions were really priceless. and to think we saw it live twice 🙂 . sooo happy they captured it for release. jeah, i think it’s fair they contacted me to request a pull (in full Italian, withOUT telling me which video to pull, and comment on my main channel instead of the video… but i’m taking a good guess that they mean this.) either way, we indeed thank them for releasing it, and so quickly! and of course they were also the one with SM’s Galatea’s dvd.. (and they did tell me i can post up to 15min 🙂 , all in Italian, i’m trusting the google translator..)

            1. …to think they probably accessed your cannel through google translator, as well! 🙂

              But they sound reasonable enough (so nice when it is actual people, and not a google algorithm) and I will be all their Mingardo merchandise if they keep releasing contralto recordings.

    1. The company will probably not differentiate between nights, and I hope they didn’t do a Mitridate Merger on the sound!

      But putting the broadcast undercover or pulling it sounds reasonable – and at least they contacted you instead of flagging you!

  2. great news. I shall order the DVD right away. I also ordered a mysterious live recording “Mingardo in concert” without information about what or where, shall keep you posted as soon it arrives. And an old Ulisse with Alessandrini recorded at Beaune 2009. Speaking of Ulisse: Thadieu mentioned in her Hamburg Ulisse review that there might be a radio recording? Please!!! Who knows how to get it let me know please.

    1. ps- the Alessandrini’s Ulisse from Beaune 2009 is available in full on youtube, did you see it? i link the playlist here, that’s what we were listening to in the contralto mobile on our way to the live show in Hamburg 🙂 . i just send email for the Hamburg one.

  3. Oh, Oh, Oh, temperature rising, really not helpful with current state (and I think thadieu and Dehggi were talking about how great this was about every 10 minutes so my expectations are huuge!)

    1. It was every ten minutes “Mingardo/Galous are the greatest”, and every other ten minutes “The piizza/the ice cream is the greatest” 😉

    1. So glad this gets the proper ‘official’ appreciation, especially Mingardo!!
      I had not thought about the role of the multiple characters on stage acting as a sort of commenting Greek chorus, makes total sense! Even the suitors were alive again shortly after their death, joining the crowd (OK, I may have had sort of a dual Mingardo/Dumaux tunnel vision).

      1. Understandable! #Nursewhatnurse
        Yes, very glad to see Mingardo getting recognized for her work here (who was the person who didn’t hear her? MoPo?)

        1. It was in the Abendblatt I think, but that person clearly didn’t have ears, also calling Mingardo one-dimensional (? :-O) while praising other singers for whom that description wouldn’t have been that far off.
