Yes, it was an attempt at humor.

Well, my joke was a very slender one to begin with, but it looks like Opera are going to have to promote their browser a lot more if they want people to know of its existence. (It's here, if anyone wants to have a look at it: http://www.opera.com/ ).

Sorry, I didn't mean to get the thread off topic.

Oh me! I've been to Carmen and Don Giovanni both at the Lincoln Center at the Met. Hey, if you've watched two, make those two count.

I've been an annual subscriber to the Canadian Opera Company in Toronto for the past few years. The first one I saw was The Handmaid's Tale, a fairly recent adaption of a Canadian novel... originally a Danish Opera, though. In retrospect, that was probably a good one to start with... it's much easier to watch an Opera of a more modern story if you're not overly used to that type of performance.
