Q:I care a lot that Gluck's Orphee is a mezzo role. I care about mezzos in pants roles in general more than I care about the majority of things, I just forget sometimes now that I no longer live in classical music academia. There is not really a point to this ask, but. MEZZOS.

in other news this is definitely a beer-at-four-p.m. kind of day
