I, too, would be interested in purchasing an OPERA-L  pin. Can someone tell

On another topic entirely: Has anyone heard the recording of Arshak. The
gentleman at Tower recommended against it, and tried to steer me to another
Armenian opera.'Anush' (I have heard (Tigranian's) David Beg, but that is, of

performance of Arshak to see in Sept., and would like to preview the music on
And, moving on: I received a brochure from my local community college, and
noticed a course in Opera appreciation is being offered. The author of the
blurb refers to 'opera', which is what I say. But I realized many people
