eat another mini mounds bar and listen to the trio from madama butterfly.
this version is 2008.
Ten.Gerald Powers, Mezzo-sop. Ryu-Kyung Kim and Bar. Shouvik Mondle in Fresno Grand Opera's Madama Butterfly production.
I love it how Pinkerton is such a lout even here.
"Sharpless, v'aspetto per via."
In other words, I'll wait for you in the car (literally, out in the road).
I liked this (nice set design) but I've definitely heard more impassioned singers work this little jewel.
I remember my old opera buff friend--how much he despised poor Giacomo.
Maybe it's a gay thang.
I love the ridiculous over-emotionality of the music.
what's not to like?
weird to think this is Nagasaki which will later be nuked.
