    Orpheus with his lute.....?

    I can just visualize giving my best rendition of "Che faro senza Euridice", with an enraptured mountain lion slinking after me. On second thought, I can't visualize it.

    I was intrigued by this news story: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/08/06/hiker-opera-scared-off-mountain-lion/13661809/

    We'll call this: Things That Everyone Else Probably Knew All Along. Shamefully enough, I know Swan Lake a little better than Lohengrin. So, I was playing Lohengrin as background music, just now. (I...

    Wednesday evening, I went to the Rigoletto HD rerun. So, Rigoletto triumphantly sings: "All' onda! All' onda!", and in the distance, you hear the Duke's voice start up: "La donna e mobile', etc.

    If anyone's been watching Downton Abbey, Dame Kiri te Kanawa is showing up next season. She'll sing.
    And, since she's just a house guest, there'll be no reason to kill her if she wants to leave the...

    As I understand it, it's when you hear a run of notes on a vowel sound as something like: "ha ha ha ha", rather than 'ah ah ah ah".

    As I understand it, adding the 'h' sound helps singers...

    Perhaps they did Tempest for you? Or Les Troyens for you? They certainly didn't do those for the people who only like warhorses. Perhaps they did Aida for my sister, who knew nothing about it but the...

    I'm scared.

    Going to see the HD Traviata tonight--that's exciting. Meeting my sister there--that's great. She's gotten hooked on opera, this last year. The short version is, that just a year ago,...

    I'm going to be really badly behaved for a moment.

    I'm listening to the Met streaming of Gotterdammerung. Isn't it a slight foot-in-mouth moment for the interviewer to say to Angela Meade: "And...

    Oh, that's so funny! Now I know my sister isn't unique! I'd posted a couple of days ago in another thread that she told me she'd seen one opera, 'Figaro', and didn't like it--it was silly. And as I ,...
