Sunday Morning Opera: My Very Favorite Aria Smackdown


This is the key to my heart. I love this piece of music.

On Saturday, May 6, 1978 in Atlanta, with the Metropolitan Opera on tour, I lost my heart to opera and a baritone. After this one specific moment, the very course of my life was changed. Naturally, I lost my heart to the Greatest Baritone of Them All – the baritone who put the hunk, in Barihunk.

You will notice I left the very best version out, this time. I tried, but I don’t have the heart to even listen. It still hurts too much. I can’t do it. I relented. I am not, though, doing a video. I can’t handle it. His was the very best version of my very favorite.
