We discussed going for, oh maybe an microsecond and went on-line and pulled the trigger for tickets. Our showing is tomorrow evening. Personally, I prefer Italian Opera over German Opera. Italian Opera is filled with sex and shenanigans and laughter. German Opera is filled with angst, dark brooding, anger and regret.
Besides warming up by listening to great baritones , of course I looked for great skating programs using the same music. Hop aboard the Way-Back Machine and go back all the way to 2015 and enjoy Javi Fernandez as he skates to first place in that year's World Championship in Shanghai. Buckle up, Javi gives us a wild ride, falling out of a triple Salchow and doubling another jump which should have been a triple but never the less our hero pulled off the win. Coach Brian Orser gets caught up in the spirit of things on the side lines. Enjoy!
