I was thinking more of the telecasts...we draw probably more young people to the live Opera than the Symphony does...boy, is that a decrepit bunch.
Of course Opera Roanoke makes a certain number of unsold tickets available FREE to students...that helps.
The audience at the Met when they were on camera seemed to cover a wider age range.
If by "tuneful", Andrew, you mean stuff like the Anvil thing that will run in your head forever if you let it, yes, I guess it is, but if I have to have an Verdian operatic ear worm, I'd much prefer, say, Parigi o cara or Va, piensero
Whatever it is, it will only last until tomorrow when I go to the symphony...which will feature "The Planets"...
