NOW HEAR THIS: Paul Groves, who was singing the role of Belmonte in Wednesday night's performance of "The Abduction From the Seraglio" at the San Francisco Opera, made his scheduled entrance onstage directly after the duet "Vivat Bacchus." Groves wasn't supposed to say anything, but made a slight departure from the libretto.
"Triumph, triumph!" he said, using appropriate numbers of fingers for those who couldn't understand German. "Giants, vier; Angels, drei." Laughter, applause and back to the show.
I love this city...we love our baseball and we love our other pleasures too.
