It has lots of musical possibilities and dramatic ones too, but I can't help

Don't be a spoilsport! GLADYS Quiet, children! Let her speak. PAMELA I like
opera, but most people don't. They think it's stuffy and oldfashioned and

Germany's affection for it is an irrational one, based mainly on associations of
childhood; every child who learned the pianoforte was taught to play the simpler

might very well have come from Tosca (Callas's wellknown 1963 London
performance of it that remains well known from a video recording). Not everyone
in the play likes opera, but failure to do so implies deficiency. On the phone with
