It was very good. The roles of Violetta and Giorgio, in particular, were performed by singers with world class talent. Not so much Alfredo, but that's not a role I care much for musically in any case (everybody must enjoy the famous drinking song, but that's not a very technically demanding aria). The staging was fairly simple- this isn't the Met! - but very nicely done, all the same.

I've seen La Traviata four times, in a wide range of venues (Stockholm, San Francisco, Orange County (CA), and Colorado Springs (a Denver company)), and this was one of the better performances.

Sounds like a good time, Chris; thanks for the report!

The Bobs. A bit warped, but amazing!, :yes: but a bit warped. Owlice, do you really sound like :arrow: To whit to whoooooo :?:
The 'white room' is a bit off white, but good. I wonder if Eric Clapton has heard it?
Art, for Art's sake - was rather strange, of course. I fast forwarded it to get rid of it.
I'll have to go back later and see if they've done 'Liar-Liar'.

Hmmm, I've admittedly never had Irish food. Now I am very interested in this pizza. In New York, I've always imagined that the Irish parts of town are also the parts of town I wouldn't want to find myself in at night... surely there must be some nicer ones too, though.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.
