The iron tongue of midnight hath told twelve. Lovers, to bed; 'tis almost fairy time.

Very nice, published in the New York Times!I love two of Respighi's operas: La Fiamma has a great potboiler plot and juicy roles for verismo-friendly tenor, soprano and mezzo voices. La Campana Sommersa has as its basis a wonderful play by Gerhard Hauptmann and there's some really incredible music by Respighi. I'd love to see a faithful production of this opera
I know La Fiamma but not the other! Must look for it.
