Opera and Operetta on CD and DVD
Would you like a preview of an unfamiliar work or a souvenir of an Opera or Operetta that you have enjoyed? Perhaps you are looking for a recording of a rare or unusual work. If so, we may be able to help!
Using our specialist contacts we may be able to obtain the CDs or DVDs you are seeking - often at less than the recommended retail price. We can sometimes source quite rare or unusual works and performances so why not give us a try? We will also source recordings of other works for you on request.
We do not hold large stocks and we do not produce a catalogue of recordings, but if you would like to contact us with your interests and requirements we will do our best to source a recording for you. If more than one version or recording is available of the same work we will offer you a choice. If you have a specific recording in mind then we will try to obtain it for you.
We will always confirm prices with you before finalizing your order. There is no obligation to buy until we have confirmed the order with you.
