    No offence, I absolutely like Roberto. But I discovered this video recently on YT and I think it's really funny.
    Other than for the fact that I don't find Roberto sexy at all, yes, the video is pretty funny! Unless they are saying it ironically. Do people actually find Roberto Alagna sexy? Ladies, your input is required.

    My input: He does absolutely nothing for me, "sexy-wise". But he may well be one of those people who is so charming in person you can't help but love him.

    And how many other singers have come in with a cartwheel, as immortalized in the ROH's cinema trailer?

    Oh yes, he is lovable/adorable enough, he seems like a cool guy, rather convivial. It's just that he's not sexy like JK or Placido or Simon Keenlyside (or so I'm told, LOL).

    Not sexy, but rather endearing.

    I didn't get the "sexy" thing--until I pointed out the resemblance to Miami-Vice-era Don Johnson in another thread.

    Interesting that you mention Miami-Vice-era Don Johnson. That show came out when I was working in Munich for the US Military. I saw articles and interviews in US magazines with this new "hot" guy--and found absolutely nothing sexy about him. When I finally got to see Miami Vice (I think we had a 2-year delay on Armed Forces TV) I "saw the light" and agreed he was sexy.

    So for this female, it's not just a looks thing--there has to be a charisma as well.

    Which is why I pray, every day, and for purely selfish reasons--that there are more women out there just like you!

    I think he's kind of cute. But JK's the one I'd like to see in Speedos!

    Is it natural for opera loves to spend 90% of their lifes discussing who's more cute and sexy?

    Did you ever happen to sit and suddenly stand up with your hands perpared to strangle, thinking NOW IT'S TIME TO MURDER SOMEBODY, then realize that there is nobody around and sit down again, laughing at what you just did? Because that's what normal people do instead of talking about cute singers.

    For me, the two go hand in hand. I frequently find myself wanting to murder a cute opera singer.

    But maybe that's just me.

    Well I'm an *opera love* and it's actually 96.5% of my life

    But we're not normal. Opera is not logical. All Vulcans hate opera.

    No, if it would be true Etna would erupt and destroy Catania during Bellini's youth so he would never get to write music.

    What language & what does this mean?
    It's Georgian and it means something like: PUSHKIN BY THE SEA FROM WHERE MAITENCE SPRATS ARE FISHED.
