Amazing but true: In a box a little over 5" x 5" x 2 1/2", excellent sounding stereo recordings of the 10 "standard" operas by Richard Wagner, in Decca's 33-CD "Wagner: The Great Operas from the Bayreuth Festival," selling online for as little as $51.99 ($55.99 at Amazon) and featuring no less than the legendary Birgit Nilsson in two of her central roles, or rather four: Isolde and all three Brünnhildes. And most of the conducting-- mostly done by Karl Böhm and Wolfgang Sawallisch-- makes sense of the music in a way that hardly anybody today knows how to do.
