finale of same recording:

if Der R is not your cup-o-tea (what?!!), you can also listen to “La Traviata”. details here.

it looks like one way or another, i’ll miss the first act, aaargh . too many cool events around. first i found out there’s a FREE 2.5hr salsa class on this campus from 7-9.30pm. Then, at the same place, there’s this talk, which i think will end up going to. The capture button will be set in motion, but for sure i’ll show up at 9pm to catch the rose presentation and the rest.

    wow, that was such a beautiful duet, clap clap clap clap. like!

  2. Where are they at? Was that Baron Ochs? I just made these Jamie Oliver brownies (killers) and am sitting down finally.

      ha, those brownies land you in spam! must be the only guy singing, Ochs. sounds like the “bugs” are coming (my only reference is Der R with Kasarova. at this point, if u remember, lots of little bugs are showing up, along w/ skeleton men)
      how about a trade of some herb tea for a brownie?

    the end. that duet is so beautiful. somehow couldn’t quite get into the trio. too many sopranos for the night methinks. i done w/ the high voice for today!

  4. Pssst! Don’t tell anybody, but two sopranos singing next to each other sounds like two cats mating in the middle of the night.
