    Two rarities of Saint-Saëns

    Just been listening to two seldom heard operas by Camille Saint-Saëns: Hélène and Nuit Persane (though Nuit isn't strictly speaking an opera, but who cares). Wonderful stuff, can't understand why they're not performed.

    the recording I have is an Australian one from Orchestra Victoria (based in Melbourne) with the remarkable Rosamund Illing and the dashingly good looking Steve Davislim. Melba records (they ship internationally).
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    I have a video of Saint-Saëns opera, Henry VIII. It is a wonderful production.
