I just wrote a long reply and somehow closed the window when I went to save it so I will try to repeat it...
I said, "Blue, you have given me a new perspective on opera with these selections. I can't deny the incredible beauty of each piece. I think my problem with opera is that I don't understand the words. So, as I listened to each selection the second time, I looked up the lyrics translated into English and this helped a lot. I could understand the emotions behind the music. Thanks blue."
Then I said, "As far as the blog regarding the WSOP, meet me in Las Vegas! I would love to see this tournament live and in person."
