The weather has been too cold and rainy for me to go out exploring for "Animals in the Wild"....so I hope you enjoy this. The music: Verdi's "La Donna Mobile" (from "Rigoletto")- or: "Women are Fickle". I love this cat and dog.....representing the "hero" - or rather the "Anti-hero" - as the Duke of Mantua is one of the all-time Opera Cads! The heroine, Gilda, who loves the Duke (foolish girl), is betrayed by him more than once...yet still sacrifices herself for him....I mean really sacrifices...she dies for him! Ah, FOOLISH AMORE! Anyway, the part in this video where the dog rolls over, exposing his bare belly to the whims of the cat's claws is priceless! A good choice of music and editing to fit La Musica!
And....today, I will actually be at a rehearsal for San Francisco Opera's "Die Walkure". In fact, I will be 'working backstage' for the next four days. Opera "intrigue", backstage backstabbing and other gossipy items coming soon!
