Sweet Baby Jesus.  I guess we can't even attempt humor here any longer.  You entirely 
missed my point - it was a joke in response but I guess my reference to Violetta blackening 
the eyes of anyone who called it . . . oh, never mind.  They're right when they say humor 
doesn't translate well on the internet . . at least my brand, I guess.

In response to my previous post, on Violetta's gran scena, [log in to unmask] wrote:

"Let's not get ridiculous. . . . It is crazy and a dissevice to say that a mere interjection of "si" 
renders an other wise long, vocally showy solo piece NOT an aria. . . . In the case of "Ah fors' 
e lui" - the (possibly original) Ricordi score says "scena ed aria." Scena, naturally, would refer 
to the orchestrally-accompanied recit - and then the rest is an aria, regardless of Alfredo's 
singing. . . Come on, folks...really??
