Wasn't Peter Sidhom Alberich in Sydney for Edo de W's concert version?

Correction: Mime!

Recorrection:

Now I'm guessing wildly, but maybe I was right first time after all.

Sorry can't remember M, and though I'm keen to follow through on all the them, I'm restricted by scandalously high pay per time Internet at the moment.

Will get something up on the performance whenever, but can say it got a 2 out of 3 in that we didn't stay for the 3rd Act, and that's very not moi. Let's say it was more interesting than it was good.

I'm shocked, because I know that is not very tois. Jetlag do for you? However, in G. (sorry, Le Crépuscule
) that's more like 3 out of 4 because of the length of the various acts and the prologue.

I looked it up myself and Sidhom was Alberich in 1995 in Sydney.

Yes, jet lag tipped the scales, which a better performance would have realigned. Plus it started a 6pm running to midnight, whatever my melatonin levels thought that was.

Knew it wouldn't have been Mime, and do remember being very impressed with just about all Edo's imports (especially the baddies and the Walkyres - don't think I've heard a better ride of - and Erda, was she his then partner?).

Internet getting sorted.

Obviously couldn't have been Mime, on even a moment's reflection.

Then again, I've always had a soft spot for Mime. He seems so much nicer than Siegfried...
