A Bite at the Opera

by HazelG » Tue Jun 01, 2010 4:06 pm

Well, I didn’t get to see Daniel Oren conducting Nabucco at Masada last week, but like Rick Stein I am an Italian opera fan. Who could not be mesmerized by a performance of Tosca with Angela Gheorghiu and Roberto Alagna, or La Boheme at The Met with Zeferelli sets? Heaven and beyond

To start the week on a cultural culinary note:

A delicious article. I too am a devotee of Italian opera and have even been known to smuggle a bit of smoked sausage, a chunk of Parma ham, a few slices of cheese, una fetta de pane imburratoand and a bottle of fine Brunello di Montalcino, into my box at the opera houses in Milano, Venezio and Roma. I have also been told (but of course will not admit to knowing on a first-hand basis) that attaining orgasm during the Dio di Giuda aria of Vedi's Nabucco is close to the very best one can have.

Nice to start the week with that happy thought
