    oh good heavens, who was it? It was a Boheme last nite, i think. Such a proprietously considerate gesture… was it accompanied by the appropo expression alluding to the “answer” … so the audience could at least imagine the ecstasy of inhaling the fragrance of one’s own body odours. This most important aspect of operatic art further justifies Smell-O-Vision being installed at these HD opera broadcast theaters!

  • Gualtier M says:

    Okay -- whose pits would you rather sniff? Grigolo or Garanca?

  • This is an gesture best kept to A Fish Called Wanda.

  • Loge says:

    Well, if it is Boheme it is set in France. You can insert your own stereotype.

  • vendorune says:

    I believe this was a Carmen topic, not Boheme.

    I personally understand people who find the smell of sweat attractive, regardless of gender or orientation.

    • Loge says:

      The original post was on Saturday morning. It refers to the opera the night before which was Boheme.

  • vendorune says:

    err… DON’T understand that was supposed to say. ^^

    This has to be Gergiev. Several years ago I attended his Otello at the Met ( gloriously sung by Domingo and Vaness) . I was sitting in the very front row about two seat to the left of Mr. Gergiev. Every time that he lifted his arms there was a very strong BO odor . Fortunately the lady next to me had a bottle of eau de cologne which she kindly shpritzed on a handkerchief and waved around during intermission.

    • Harry says:

      That figures..Gergiev looks a grubby unwashed grot. It was reputed that peasant Nureyev used to carry hard boiled eggs in his pocket around, to eat.

  • Loge says:

    I took this more as a quick check to make sure he or she doesn’t stink before coming into contact with the love interest.

    Marina in Boris Godunov and Wotan in Rheingold, I hope.
