I just received a call from San Francisco Opera. Because we’ve bought tickets in the past, they of course would like a donation from us. One suggestion was something like $7,000. Heh. She gave up on me about that (finally) but then encouraged me to buy tickets to an opera.

So here’s the huge OH DEAR! The telemarketer couldn’t pronounce ANY of the three operas. Yikes! They are doing Don Giovanni, Iphigénie en Tauride and Der Rosenkavalier. Now of course those aren’t titles we say every day, but wouldn’t you think they would coach those they hire? I mean … Der Rosenkavalier was hysterical. She wasn’t even able to pronounce it phonetically. Not even close. Yikes!
