Three nights ago I was on my way to see my wife sing at the Algonquin Salon. On my way I happened to pass through Times Square to see, well, what's in this video--how surreal! Live opera being performed up the street at Lincoln Center, piped down to giant screens in front of a huge array of seats. Anyone could come in and sit down and watch three acts, each from a different show, all performed by opera-great Renee Flemming. I'm not a fan of opera, but I thought of my mom that night--she loves opera. This footage is for you, Mom! (Sorry it's so crappy... blame the iPhone!)
