Jesse: ‘Figaro, Figaro …’

On his Facebook wall, SR buddy Jesse Tinsley posts: “My favorite opera aria is from 'The Barber of Seville' and I torture my family by singing it all the time. My son, 14, wrote down the only opera he could name when he got a question in a Quiz Bowl contest: What opera starts out with the song 'La Donna e Mobile'? He thought it sounded like the opening lyric of my favorite song, 'Largo Factotum.' The correct answer, of course, was 'Rigoletto.' You can only learn so much opera from Bugs Bunny.”

DFO: The two forms of music I can't stand are opera and rap. I can tolerate most other forms of music.

Question: Do you like opera?
