Shouldn't a French opera be sung in German?

Rick's Cafe

HA - I can save you the price of a ticket....just listen to me yodel in the shower - especially after a few beers!


You're so well-rounded, both of you!

So ... you ever gonna tell us WHICH one was "Mean Laurie" and which one wasn't?

Telling ME to LISTEN to opera is about as mean as it gets, for me, even when I don't have to GO someplace to do it.


You're right, MamaMo, and I CANNOT click that link (maybe later) because I WILL cry. Pavarotti's voice and vocal power is unlike anything there ever has been, or will be, sigh. And yes, I think he was very sexy. Except for the shoe-black hair, shudder.

To Music Appreciation: I will be with my mother and my silver-haired uncle in the theater Saturday, so I'll try to restrain my stage-rushing proclivities. But I might toss my bra at the screen.

Sorry, Rick, I loves me a good beer-drinking man, yes I do, and I like to drink beer while I cry at the opera. But yes, "Frog opera" makes me weak in the knees -- almost as weak as Italian opera. But not German or English opera. They need to stick to making me more beer. :)


I love opera too, but NO ONE, and I mean NO ONE, can ever take the place of the ultimate ear/eye candy - Luciano Pavarotti. I mean, really... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEkHmTuWRIE

Music Appreciation

WOW - I didn't know there was anybody else who listened to French opera besides me....let alone appreciates it.

Try to keep from rushing the stage at the ovations!

French opera?
Didn't the frogs give up on that when they retreated in the 1600s, 1700s, and several times each in the 1800 & 1900s.

Can't understand why any woman would drool over other women with hairy armpits who can't sing as high as their 'supposed' male counterparts. Except, possibly to appreciate their manly men when they finally get back into the kitchen.
TGIF - Beer me!

You had me at French.



I'll have to check my link again, CRUD. But until then, you can go to http://www.fathomevents.com//details.aspx?eventid=671 to find a theater near you. I think you type in your zip code.

It's $22 a ticket for adults so it's a bit more than your average theater experience, IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD *MORE*.

Standing O up to you, I'm afraid (you knocked me out with that one, Sarah! ha ha ha -- still laughing).

And it's 1:30 p.m. eastern time, AND most of the theaters are running an encore presentation (in my town it's on Sunday 4/27/08).

If you buy your tickets on-line it costs a dollar extra, or just go down to your local theater and buy them there.

AND, if you aren't able to go sit in a comfy movie house to see it, you can always turn on your radio and catch the live audio on NPR, standing in your kitchen weeping, like I often do.

ok, where was I

I could so go for a thunderous standing O.

Talk about substance and class. You're hip to all kinds of hip and classy things. But I'm almost entirely certain I will not find this in my hometown.

I like mean Laurie.


YOu will soooooooooooo love it. I want to come! Or at least get a full report/critique of the whole opera.
Do enjoy!

Chesapeake Bay Woman

Wow. The closest thing we have to opera here is the middle-school students singing You Are My Sunshine at Grandparents Day.

Sounds like you'll have a great time. Beware: too much eye candy may cause cavities. And drooling.


OH, Lord, I think I'm in love. And me who was so excited JUST LAST NIGHT by the fact that my hunky TVLand boyfriend was finally back on the airwaves. I might be about to break his heart for this guy. EXCEPT. I don't get how I'm supposed to see the simulcast performance on Saturday. Where again? When? I'm dying here, since the link you provided only sends me to two minutes worth of dress rehearsal. Any more advice?
