Wonderful broadcast of "Die Frau ohne Schatten" from the Berlin Staatsoper this afternoon.  
The singing was uniformly excellent, particularly Camilla Nylund's radiant Empress.  Burkhard 
Fritz's Emperor was impressive, although he did not make the murderous tessitura sound 
easy.  (Strauss must have hated tenors!)  I found Mehta's tempi a bit lethargic at times, but 
not so much as to spoil the performance.  

Goodness, I love this opera.
