If that opera thing didn’t work out…

Did you know today was Say unPC Things About Opera Day? No? Now you do.

Latonella started it way back in August last year, in her Ciro from Polonia post:

The formidable Ewa Podles looks like “an elderly Polish lady.” Haha! She so does.

I was ruthlessly inspired, so here we go:

Susan Graham = running your middle school’s carpool scheme and organising Soccer practice since 1996

Edita Gruberova = Auntie Ditta from Bratislava will teach you how to make belcanto-style preserves from the peach crop in her own orchard

Ildebrando D’Arcangelo, loved by many opera devoted ladies, looks to me like your surprisingly well intentioned car mechanic

Dorothea Roschmann = teaching middleschool German to exasperating pre teens (a few with secret crushes on her)

Sara Mingardo = that mild mannered Librarian in charge of the Italian Renaissance Poetry Section on your campus’ Main Library

Alex Esposito = wait, wasn’t that the footie coach?!

  1. I am here for the “mild mannered Librarian in charge of the Italian Renaissance Poetry Section on your campus’ Main Library”. If only our library staff could measure up to that! (If only our main library had a section in Italian Renaissance Poetry beyond Macchiavelli!)
    (okay, I may be on the wrong campus, period)

  5. HAHAHA. Graham is SO a soccer mom with a rock star groupie history in an alternate life. Also, Kasarova reminds me of various Slav middle aged women I know, but I can’t come up with a character.

    But, ASvO — an upper class Swedish housewife circa 1950s who sews her own floral dresses.

    • But, ASvO — an upper class Swedish housewife circa 1950s who sews her own floral dresses. 😀 her sense of style is way liberated.

      Graham is SO a soccer mom with a rock star groupie history in an alternate life. I like that addition.

      To me Kasarova looks like an outdoorsy type, like someone who has a vinyard in the countryside, but, yea, I can’t think of anything more specific than that.
