My favorite Puccini opera (heck, my favorite opera ever), Turandot, is now playing at The Metropolitan Opera house. Surprised I like opera? I'M WELL ROUNDED! If you're not familiar with opera, you've probably heard the famous aria from it called "Nessun Dorma". It was the late great Luciano Pavarotti's signature aria.
Fun fact. Many of you know that I'm a recovering actor. But you may not know that my very first show was Turandot with New York City Opera at Lincoln Center.
That's me and my friend Andy backstage! Nessun Dorma indeed! Anyway, to my shame, I've never seen an opera at The Met. And to have my first be my favorite would be outstanding. So, get on that friends! Buy me tickets and contribute to the culture of a roguish bastard.
