Opera pig

| No Comments

This is too good. First, Seattle Opera got in on the frenzy of Pigs on Parade, whipping up an Opera Pig named Rusty. Then the scenic studios manager, Michael Moore, composed a 20-second "aria" for the pig to sing, and persuaded baritone John Boehr to lend it his voice.

A bit of electronic wizardry in Rusty's snout senses when people come snooping around the plaza in front of McCaw Hall, prompting Rusty to belt out "La Canzone del Maiale." Rough translation: Whatta day, whatta song, what great singing, this (snort!) song of the pig!"

Doesn't sound rusty to me. More like Pigoletto. Or Pigliacci.
