(See how much you like opera?)

From here I read:

On November 20, in the Central Market in Valencia, Spain, a piano was heard playing over the sound system, and a young fruit-seller suddenly started singing Alfredo’s Act I music from Verdi’s La Traviata from inside his stand. He was joined by a soprano female vendor, singing Violetta.

Then another tenor broke in, then another soprano, as a bemused crowd looked and listened in appreciation. At the end, there were three couples, indulging in a little competitive singing, handing out sparkling wine in champagne flutes, waltzing with passersby – and passing out leaflets pushing the opera.

(I’m not hearing a piano, though. Accordion maybe?)


  1. How do I find that opera in the market clip?

  2. so?

  3. I’m not sure what you’re asking, Oscar. The opera is la Traviata … is that what you wanted to know?
