It's all French to me...


Last night i had the time of my life watching the telecast of
"La Fille du Regiment"
from the ROH with Natalie and Juan Diego!
An incredible production, an incredible performance!
And despite the comments i had read about Dawn French,
i adooooored her as
La Duchesse de Crackentorp!
I also enjoyed her pro and post performance comments...
Cheesy? Camp? Maybe, but funny indeed!
This is my point of view, i loved the idea of Dawn French as La Duchesse as i also loved her on TV as the half of the duo "French and Saunders".

And as the "Daily Mail" wrote, "fat lady who DOESN'T sing steals show at opera" AND After the show, 49-year-old French said: “It was absolutely fantastic to be working with these people. They are inhumanly talented.

Watch the pre -performance comments



and Dawn French as La Duchesse!



AND some hilarious French and Saunders videos!

French and Saunders are Lucia Poop and Renata Von Trapp the famous opera divas! (you 'll LOVE this one....)



French and Saunders in a BJORK parody !




and here as ballet dancers...



and many many more that you can find @ Youtube...

PS. This is my first 2008 post! Happy New Year to all, hope 2008 will be as smart, funny, full of happiness as these two ladies above are...

Why don't you credit the people who uploaded these videos? Wasn't that your complaint at Parterre.com and isn't that why you change the status of the Dessay video? Not very consistent. You could even say hypocritical. I love your website otherwise, but I wish you couldn't be so childish.

But the problem dearest "atomic wings" is not the youtube video...The problem is that this is the 3d time that i make a post and a couple of days later i find it at La Cieca's without reference...When Parterre used my "Alagna in the pool" video with reference i had absolutely no problem, and the video is stil there.Well, even if i liked a post by OperaChic or whoever, i would have the dignity NOT to reproduce it, or even if i did i would definitely give credit to the original poster...It's not me being childish, it's others anti-deontological.

What shows up on Youtube is fair game for anyone to blog about. Even you put up videos without giving "credit" to the uploader. I have seen that site give credit to other bloggers about other stories, so I don't think he heard of this video by reading your blog. I myself found the video without either your blog or Parterre.com. I would be happy to have Parterre.com feature one of my videos because it would drive traffic to my other videos and to my blog. I think your hurt feelings are clouding your judgment.

oh, c'mon now...i uploaded this video 5 minutes before writing my post, and 24 hours before la Cieca found it out...How would he have heard about the video? on the news? I'm happy too when others refer to my posts as long as they don't claim them to be their own but i don't give a damn about "traffic"...

That's the whole point of "viral videos." One person sees it, sends it to 10 people, who each send it to 10 people. Why would you think it's strange that someone would send it to parterre.com within 24 hours? I don't see that parterre.com claimed it as its own. I'm sorry you have hurt feelings because I think it's clouding your thinking.
