Bryn Terfel’s growing on me in this recording too! His voice has a very distinct color in this performance, somewhere between dark amber and old honey, and I like his consonants.
I will say that while Pisaroni is the best Leporello, Renee Fleming as Donna Anna in this recording is growing on me. I like the fury she brings to Anna’s part.
(The best Leporello is still Luca Pisaroni. I cannot be swayed from this opinion.)

(Neither I nor the wasp were injured, due to a rather fantastic critical dex roll on my part.)
Last but not least, a full complement of bees accompanied me. I was not quite the center of a moving cloud, but I was greeted several times and almost swallowed a wasp.
At least everyone is practicing a modicum of social distancing, though I’m sure my expression and pace helped them grok I was not in the mood for contact.
It’s the little things.
