Opera en el Mercado

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

My brother sent this to us:

“In November at the central market in Valencia Spain, opera singers disguised as shopkeepers were selling produce at the various stalls.  Suddenly, Verdi’s Il Travatore starts playing over the loudspeakers, and the shopkeepers burst into song.  None of the shoppers had a clue.  Sort of like candid camera but completely charming.” He added to this, “I wept.. Isn’t this who we are?”
