    Yes, there is - I lack a talent of conquering maiden's heart.

    Will go easy with her, but I'll be glad to shot her fiance in their wedding day, with accompaniament of overture from Bellini's Norma.

    Couple of interesting YouTubes from Lovely Luca, on learning new roles, rehearsing and preparing to perform.

    WildcatPR needs to come up with a different idea of the best place to record an interview--geez!! Just kidding, wonderful interview and so enjoyable! Thanks so much, I would never have known about this.

    sorry to be so ignorant, but what role was he rehearsing? Was it at Glyndebourne? I thought it sounded like Russian that he was singing while putting on the tie.

    Thank you Nat!

    I'm just trying to visualise Luca running around Düsseldorf Opera House in a dress.

    (Will watch them all later.)

    Along the lines of our own Things I've learned from opera, ROh have been running an opera rules to live by on Twitter.

    I think ours are better but I like these

    I've just found a source of quite rare operas. R-K (almost everything), Smetana (Dalibor), Rachmaninow (Aleko) are at hand. Already stole Berlioz's The Bold et Le Beautiful and Moniuszko's operetta Verbum Nobile. Quite a listening prepare for I must you can trust.

    Edit: those fraudulent reptiles cheated on me, the libretto of Berlioz is only in French

    I was thinking about a "Signs you've been watching too much opera" thread --

    - You start recognizing and coming up with nicknames for Met chorus members ("little guy", "constipation face woman")
    - You accuse your dog of being a park-and-barker

    You tune out of conversations--waiting for the boring recitative to end.
