… and you still might not believe it. Really.

A story about a performance of Carmen. This story had me checking my calendar to see if it was April 1. Or maybe there are other days where people get to tell whoppers? Hmmm.

  • Part One
  • Part Two

    ICK. This sounds like the worst job ever.

    Can it really be true?

    And then there’s this:

    Maestro Bátiz holds some major political power; his dynamic personality attracts it like a magnet. For a short while, the mayor of Mexico City even appointed him as an honorary Chief of Police. When an oboist in his orchestra tried to take an audition for a different orchestra, Bátiz had the oboist arrested and thrown in jail so he would miss the audition.

    Wow. Amazing.
