Some music for Otta

Mimi is very sick and Colline, the philosopher, is going to sell his beloved coat of many years to pay for a Doctor. This is James Morris, excellent!



Barbarina has lost a pin she was to take from the count to her cousin. I have another performance of this and the next which is much better but it is packed.



The Countess wants to win back the love of her cheating husband. She has always been a loving and faithful wife.



This is really too good to be an ice cream aria.

you are the best, most wonderful!

what's an ice cream aria?

The first song of the second act was usually the second string singer rather than the star. Many people would go for a snack (like ice cream) after the first act and miss it.

Mac, you are amazing with all these facts!

Thank you, Gentle Mac, I have waited for this!

Opera.

Your passion and courtesy are what drew me to out on Teh Wheel. You were so gracious, and I just knew that I'd be in for a rare treat if I could only get you to tell me your thoughts on opera and machining. I kept going back to the midnight threads hoping to glean a hint of your feelings about things.

You do...
you understand passion...
That's rare.

Thank you, my Gentle Friend. Sleep well, the sleep of the virtuous.
