In case you were curious


I think this is the aria Monona mentioned below:


And here's a libretto from the same opera that's really gorgeous:


I've never heard of this opera - it's a great Old Testament tale.

That was my concern.  I saw our adversary when I was practicing last night.  And she eats so much D-Con and Just-One-Bite that she leaves little bright green poopies around.  I think she'd give a cat some major indigestion.


But last night I also didn't put out any D-Con and mixed the Just-One-Bite and the Tom Cat shavings.  This morning it looks she's eaten quite a bit of the Tom Cat.  I've pulled out an old aria from an obscure Handel oratorio called Ester that I hope to practice soon: It's Esther's Alleluia.
