Dashing, right?


  • John Borstlap says:

    It was on such short notice that there was not even time to put a shirt on.

  • Peter Freeman says:

    Lol JB!

  • Herbert Glass says:

    Ain’t no Marzellina in Barbiere — or even a Marcellina.

  • MarieTherese says:

    Marzellina in Barbiere is Figaro’s daughter, whom he mentions but whom we never see. The old governess’ name is Berta.
