… no, I’m not referring to my oboe!

Beginning today you can watch The Cunning Little Vixen on medici.tv and it’s free! It’ll be there until December 31, 2008. Pretty darn nice. I’ve heard the opera, but I’ve never heard it.

Right now I’m watching Rolando Villazón talking about his first performance. It’s what automatically came on when I clicked on the link. I’m not sure if that’s what’ll happen when you go there. (I don’t know how the thing works!)

I love his “The dressing rooms of the world are not as big as I thought.” Hah! And he sings the beginning of cuanto e bella from Elixir.

… oh do watch this (I think this is maybe the direct link to a not-so-short video). Now he’s getting ready to go out on stage to sing Una fortuna. And now he’s sung it. (And looks to do an encore of it, although we don’t hear that.)
