    To each his own.

    Like many of you I already have quite a lot of DVD's (300 and counting).

    Of late I started to colelct Opera's on DVD (you know what I mean; big-chested men and women commenting on their woes to the accompaniment of a big orchestra, chorus and outrageuos costumes), as I am somewhat of a classical music lover.

    On all the DVD-sites that I know and regurlary read, the majority of reviews are of movies. Nothing wrong with that, except that I would like to see a site which talks about Classical Music on DVD's.

    Does anyone know of such a site ?

    Please tell me.

    I'd love some info too.

    right now I content myself with doing searches on Amazon when a particular title strikes me with curiosity.

    Your prayers are answered. I regularly review opera and classical music DVDs at www.digitallyobsessed.com and there's even a genre in the sidebar for opera. If there are any upcoming opera (give me at least a month notice before street date--check the Image prereleases) you'd like me to review, drop me an email.
