I dunno. An opera of The Fly just doesn’t appeal to yours truly. It sounds, and I guess it’s suppose to sound, gross. I couldn’t watch the entire movie, and I don’t know if I’d want to see and hear the opera. Guess time’ll tell, eh? Domingo is bringing it to LA, so I suppose he sees and hears something in it. (Or was anything even completed when he took this on?)

Read about it here.

I did think it was funny when I read “One of the things they asked me in the audition is how quickly can I make changes once I’ve learned something,” he added.

Well, okay … so would someone who is auditioning for something respond with, “I don’t make changes quickly. In fact, I hate change.”? Seems to me that’s just a silly question.

But anyway, I promise to keep an open mind. Really. Maybe it’ll be the Best Opera Ever.
