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?!
