I don't know why it is that I am so intolerant of operas done in English 
(save for anything penned by Menotti).  It sounds so ... so ....wrong.

Case in point: I heard one of my top 5 favorite tenor arias "Kuda, kuda"  
done by Jussi Bjoerling and I almost didn't recognize it.  His voice was 
beautiful as always but it lost something in the translation.
And while I am complaining and fussing, I also have a serious problem 
every time Sirius plays the Romeo of Corelli, who sounds so wrong for that 
sensitive role.  
Okay -- back to my cage.
