Could be afternoon to those unfortunate enough to live to the west. Yes - I suppose that could be.

..but
The effort continues to bring a little culture to this backwater of the internets.

So tonight
We bring you
Donizetti's Anna Bolena
Sit back and enjoy.

Well - wonderful, right?

Such encouraging response from you all.
So much so
I'll make it a regular feature.

Every Tuesday?

How can I love an artform that is so consistently, insistently cruel 2 its female characters???
They stab themselves, throw themselves on funeral pyres, go mad and die.
IMO operas the most misogynistic art form. period.

Art is not sexistic. That is only your own interpretation....

Well, kids
Can you believe it's Tuesday again already.
Well - it is. You don't have to believe it for it to be.

I thought
hows about an opera where everyone is happy all the time
..and no one dies.
then
I thought
How freeking boring that would be.

So tonight
We present
Verdi's La Traviata
Make yourself a big batch of popcorn
and enjoy the show: (poor Violetta. poor poor Violetta)

Tonight
being Tuesday
We once again present the finest in Opera.

Now - it did come to mind that not all--yous-trolls
are fluent in the languages of Opera
and so
the story lines may be difficult to follow.
Pardons for that oversight.
So.....
I thought that I might present and Opera in English
..but lets hold on to that thought as we may have in store a very special treat in weeks to come.
Instead
..tonight I will include a synopsisisis
of tonight's musical tale

That of Floria Tosca.
The synops:
