Oh, well, definitely here, you would have to do six years to get the two degrees. You definitely chose the best place to do it :P

Nice to know you are another to add to the collection of music students that play every instrument ;)

I must confess, string instruments and I do not get along at all. I take one look at a string instrument and run a mile.

Unfortunately. I love the viola. :(

That is disappointing as I love string instruments, but as you are talented with so many others, you are still amazing! :D

(She ? wasn't added to the all emailees and All Members. ?? I think that means a person can't post, even if they're part of the Registered Users.)

Mae govannen! Now it works. *victory dance*

I couldn't imagine what was wrong... I have been using a lot of phpBB forums, but I never had problems.


Well, I'm Sieglinde, and I like stories with Rings and obsession.

I'm from Hungary and found the link somewhere on Anke Eissmann's site.

My favourites in LotR are: the nice Gondorian family (all three of them), Éowyn, Gollum, Witch King and Gimli.

In Silmarillion, I'm Noldor-obsessed. Pretty Kinslayers rock. *inserts Blind Guardian music here* I also like poor Túrin, Beren and Lúthien, Eol, and of course, Melkor. He's like a mix of Loki and Lucifer.

I also love Norse and Celtic mythology and operas based on them, that is, Wagner. I'm opera maniac in general, but Wagner is something special.

I like a lot of sci-fis/fantasys, like SW (only the original trilogy), HP, Trek, Paolini's Inheritance (don't say a Brísingr spoiler, pleeease - it wasn't released in Hungary yet), and Dune.

I have a thing for Japanese and Chinese movies, westerns, film noirs and old classics in general.

And my greatest addiction: Les Misérables. Book, musical, movies - any form. I just love it.

Oh, and Sweeney Todd, too. Especially the originial Broadway version with George Hearn and Angela Lansbury.

And I like good fanfics. Good means: no Marie-Suzettes, no resurrections, good style.

I like your Javert avatar, but I confess I'm a Javert freak anyway. Stars ftw!

Me too. I'm obsessed with Javert. Because the Lawr is WIN.

This one is Wim van den Driessche, but otherwise, my fave is Quast. I have a constant "I want to hug him" feeling when he sings.

Isten hozott Sieglinde. Have fun here. That's a powerful set of enthusiasms that you've got.






(No I can't speak Hungarian, I googled it)

Personally I prefer Michael McCarthy, but Quast is a very close second!

McCarthy is wonderful, too. I have a lot of fave Javerts. Him, PQ, Wim van den Driessche, Christian Alexander Müller, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Patrick Rocca.

But I strongly dislike Terry Mann.

Oh, and my fave Sieglinde? Many. Jeannine Altmeyer, Waltraud Meyer, Evelyn Herlitzius, Nina Stemme, Eva-Marie Westbroeck. Important: she shall be slim!

My favourite Siegmund is clearly Peter Hoffmann. I adore the Chéreau Ring, and he's a sexy beast.

You should fit in wonderfully here, Sieglinde!

Despite being 25% Hungarian myself I can only say exactly 3 things in Hungarian: Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Beware, little girl!

:D

My only Hungarian experience was when my university choir performed a motet by Kodaly.

Oh, and Waltraut Meier is one sexy babe. I don't know any of the other Sieglindes you mentioned, though.

Check them on youtube. :D

Nina Stemme is a wonder... she's up as Senta and Isolde. She's slim but has a huge voice.

Herlitzius sang in Budapest this summer (we had a Ring in four days!) and she was great.

Oh, my fave Ring character is Hagen. I have a thing for tragic villains. And especially for tremendous bass voices. Our Hagen here was Salminen. He sounded like a God.
