So I've reached the end of Karlheinz Stockhausen's 29 hour opera cycle Licht which I have collected since 1981. I've seen 3 of them live. Donnerstag was my first in 1985 and I was hooked - CDs don't compare with live - you miss the sounds move in 3D around you.

I'm not an opera fan and don't even like operatic singing but I've found each one has gems and difficult scenes for me. The ideas are inspiring - I'll never understand it all but that's part of it.
I wonder if they'll ever be performed together in 1 week in my lifetime...
