I have this thing, too. Drowning by Numbers is my favourite Greenaway. I am 
teaching the Tempest in the fall, and I am very tempted to show the 
Greenaway/Geilgud version to my students.

Have you heard Nyman's opera "The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat"? It 
might convince you that you like Nyman on his own, too.
