I would love to see it produced by a major opera company.

It was done fairly recently in Zurich (which is a "major opera company" with Piotr Beczala as 
the Prince) and will be repeated in June 2018, also with Mr Beczala, Ms Kleiter, Ms Olvera 
(Adalgisa to Ms Bartoli's Norma?) etc.

I loved the Gedda Schwarzkopf recording (with the high D-flat in the repeat of Dein is mein g 
h). Mr Gedda is also quite good, I think, in the later recording with Ms Rothenberger where he 
sings the high note as well, albeit a bit more "spinto-ish". However, I very much dislike the 
Gustl on that recording, a quite whiny tenor, and much prefer Erich Kunz who, of course, has 
to change the vocal line but is very charming.

Kind regards
