Thanks for the Enno Cheng review! Yeah, it's a great album. I still want to check her out in Summer's Tail again. Just need to make sure first whether the DVD I used to own is still hiding somewhere in my room.

In regards to Connie Chan, I'm sorely tempted to make a trip to HK to see her perform Dream of the Red Chamber. She did an excerpt from the opera during her last show a couple of years ago.

You're welcome! :D

I couldn't make out the exact details of Connie's show. I imagine it's extended excerpts of Dream.
