Bugs Bunny & Opera? by Eamon

The Barber of Seville, one of the most famous Italian operas in the world. Many may not know the actual opera; however the songs such as FIGERO were used in many famous TV series. Bugs Bunny used many variations of the story line and Woody Wood Pecker sung it one time.
Our seats were great, a level above the ground seats and strait smack in the center, perfect to see the orchestra and the opera. Seeing the conductor, Dad was reminded of an old Bugs Bunny cartoon, he’s still a kid at the heart. Although today is his birthday.
We watched in awe as the women who played Rossina belted out the high, a glass piercing experience. When I was younger I think I was able to get that high, but not that loud. We all were very thankful for the little display screens that put up the words being projected in a musical manner. Overall it was a very spectacular, once in a lifetime experience to see a famous opera in a famous opera house in Vienna.
