    That aside I love modern Finnish opera from Aarre Merikanto (Juha) onwards. Most are tragedies. Juha ends up walking into the rapids because of his wife's betrayal. In Aulis Sallinen's Punainen Viiva (The Red Line) it starts with discussions of the forthcoming elections (The Tsar's 1906 Referendum) where the voters must draw a red pencil line next to the option they have voted for to the end of the opera where the farmer Topi, whose children have just died of starvation, is fighting with a bear and the narrator comments that Topi is lying perfectly still with a red line across his throat. Oh and I like the Russian opera Boris Godunov composed by Mussorgsky, which of course ends with Tsar Boris having his heart attack. When it was performed at Savonlinna (I think - it was a long time ago) Boris actually fell down the stairs, and only afterwards did the audience realise it was staged and not the accident we thought it was! (Gasps from the audience - we thought he really WAS DEAD! :oops: )
     
  15. Well that should get her kit off then!
     
  16. Just a thought (and not a pleasant one) would anyone actually work at getting Oprah Winfrey's kit off?
