Not Dead Yet

With all the doom and gloom we've been talking about here at Aria Serious, sometimes it pays to stop and look at the bright side of things. Sure, life and business is tough in this climate but we need to stop and remember this simple fact: opera is not dead yet.

Nope, it is very much alive.

The Christian Science Monitor published this article that looks at how new works are flourishing in America. So have a read, and remember: opera has been through worse. It has survived wars and great depressions. Afterall, it is a great artform, and the one thing all great artforms share is the power to endure.

Now for something completely different, the Monty Python sketch that inspired the title to this post.
