Exciting Autumn Releases!!!

Hey, operalovers!

As you may know each season I write about upcoming CD/DVD releases which in my opinion, should get your attention but... sometimes, some of the great recordings suddenly show up after my posts and today it's a case like this! It's such awesome news for me, so I have to tell you about them to have a good sleep tonight:)
We'll be able to see two amazing DVDs with awesome casts and they are Bellini's "I Capuleti e I Montecchi" and Boito's "Mefistofele"!!! These productions belong to San Francisco Opera. I absolutely adore Bellini's opera and have been dreaming to watch the staging version (cause I've listened to only audio version). I'm not familiar with Boito's work but I know one Mefistofele's aria with whistling which is very unusual and funny so I'm looking forward to see it as a whole thing! But the main reason of my emotional post is two casts that these operas have! I'll leave all information about that below and I'm sure that after reading it you'll undestand my excitement:).
