Archived from groups: rec>music>opera (more info?)

As much as we sit there in the theatre or at home and thrill to the
great work of these composers..Verdi..Puccini.Wagner..etc....there is
still NOTHING like actually DOING IT!!!!!
The amazing intricacies of a Verdi ensemble,for example,come
to life when you are standing there and actually singing those
ensembles. One does need to be some kind of "star" to enjoy this. I
recall how many community groups exist all over the country..and
world..and how the every-day citizen" can partake in these events..and
what joy one experiences in "making music."
This is especially fresh in my mind today after our Aida
dress rehearsal last night, where we are up there and all those great
soloists are blasting the hell out of the end of act two and all the
SQUILLO of tenor,mezzo and soprano on those B flats,C flats (as written
in the score) are surrounding you..enveloping you..and you are doing
the "bottom line" (Ramfis/King) but all of it comes together in such a
glorious finale....it fills you with joy that you are "making it
happen."
There is no better way to truly appreciate what these
geniuses have accomplished than to be a part of it,and I know some of
you have been involved similarly in such undertakings..best therapy in
the world!!! as ever Charlie

this is undoubtedly what Verdi had in mind when he wrote that finale.

Pinocchio Rose, who can't sing for shytte either.

Just ignore him, Charlie. He's been off his meds for some time now. I
know I have said I would ignore him, but his posts are so outrageous
and infantile, that I haven't been able to. Especially since I have
become the main object of his affections, followed by you!!

I will try to ignore him, lo giuro!

Couldn't have said it better, myself!

But you did say it yourself, Tillman. Nobody else said it. Do you
always "quote quotes" and make it appear that someone else wrote them?
No one else on this ng is immature enough to write what you wrote
above, and what you write hundreds of times a day.

You just love the attention, don't you? And I have been giving it to
you. Mai piu- and you sure do!! As the Tosti song says, written in
English, "Goodbye forever, goodbye forever" to the obnoxious Tillman
bird!

The Ediot, all Swigged-out and foaming at its fat mouth:

>Just ignore him, Charlie.

Yes, just as the ediotic a-hole "ignores" me, Charlie.

>He's been off his meds for some time now.

My only meds are VicksŪ rubs in the winter months, while yours are
heavily spiked santoral-gulpings to the point of semi-consciousness,
Ediot. The difference.

>I know I have said I would ignore him,

And we know you're a lying pig-dropping. So much for what you saidiot,
Ediot.

>My posts are so outrageous and infantile, that
> he should not ignore mine.

Ergo, I DON'T.

>I haven't been able to. Especially since he has
> become the main object of my sick affections,
> followed by you!!

Hey, non gelosia! You two lovebirds can HAVE each other, for all I
care, twits!

>I will try to ignore him, lo giuro!

Giuro?????

WHOA!
Careful, Edioturd! You _may_ now get struck by lightning. (Amen to
that! And another Amen to that.)

>Edioturd Ro-scum

Couldn't have said it better, myself!

Just remembered:

I pray that Merrill's, Warren's, and Tucker's deaths weren't in some way
caused by Ediot-Fume Inhalation.

Feh!

Darling Geoffrey,
Some of us just got home from work. Can you wrap your mind around that?

Bisous,

Dear Steve,
This causes me to smile. tillman, the unhappy little man from brooklyn
who posts here so often daily, and also dutifully twice a day on
OPERA-L (because that's the limit) should be exposed on the entire
internet for the nasty freak that he is. Will you help me do this?
Best,
Mark
