Hilarity: why the opera makes you cry

Hilarity: why the opera makes you cry

Some Sunday fun for you, readers!

We liken this video by Juan Pablo Zaramella to every production of La bohème. Every time we weep (either at the return of the cuffietta, or when Musetta is nice, or at the very least at "coraggio!"), we feel like yelling at long-dead Puccini, "you did not earn those tears honourably! These are cheap tricks!"

And still, we love La bohème. And onions.
