// Tosca. /

Yesterday we saw Tosca. It was super awesome for at least two reasons:

1) Hans has a rival! The gorgeous Dutchman from earlier in the season was back as deliciously evil bad-guy Baron Scarpia. As in Dutchman, he was just bursting with WOW. Scroll through these photos and look for Greer Grimsley. Or just look for THE COAT. I want his costumer. You've probably not heard the last out of me about this guy. Or his coats. (Oh and he's going to be Wotan in the Ring cycle and WOW I'm going to be SO HAPPY.)

2) Lisa Daltirus REALLY IS ALL THAT. She is the upandcoming Aretha Franklin of Opera. SUPERDIVATASTIC! Really excited to see her again next season.
