TOO FUNNY!

Jeopardy Question:
In 1900 the first La Scala performance of this opera was conducted by the man whose last name began with the opera’s title.

And the answers were:
Cosi fan tutti
Don Giovanni
Beggars

Yeah … really!

Of course the opera was actually Tosca.

Too. Darn. Funny.

Or sad.

You choose. ;-)

I still can’t differentiate the instruments for MEP AT ALL…Stupid horns, trumpets and oboe. And I even ‘misheard’ the strings for winds D:

I’ve always enjoyed the Dring trio, but I’m not familiar with this work. Sweet, lovely movement.
