Yes, and a great opera. I have a feeling, though, that I'll be fidgeting in my seat wondering what's going on in the game, and I'll be upset if I'm not able to find the game to watch afterwards.

The guy at the box office is a colleague of mind, and I felt cornered. "Oh, you're so lucky," he said to her, "it's a great production and you 'll get to watch it with someone who knows the opera so well." It was her birthday; I couldn't very well say no at that point. I'm a sucker! ;)

Take a cab home from the opera. Insist that the Cabbie keep the radio off (which will piss him off enough so he doesn't speak to you, lessening the chance of spoilers). Keep your eyes shut all the way home. Then fire up the Tivo. (This is why Tivo was invented for, after all....)

Figaro is awesome....

Alas, if only there were such a thing as Tivo in the UK. That said, I don't even own a tv. I have to hope I can find the game online without learning the result.

Yes, Marriage of Figaro is my favorite opera, and Figaro himself is my dream role … although I did just turn down a chance to sing it this summer because I've heard bad things about the company that wanted to cast me.
