Another Unfortunate Error

In my "Recording of the Month" review of the new Jeff Beck album, I wrote that the aria "Nessun Dorma" was from Puccini's opera Tosca. It is, of course, from another Puccini opera, Turandot. Which I knew, both operas being favorites and both of which I have seen live several times.

Rats! No-one sleeps? We were _all_ sleeping!

But Beck plays the heck out of it!

As long as Scarpia doesn't send John to the gallows, or Tosca grab the knife, or the ice princess throw riddles at him, John will be okay, and Stereophile will survive.

Think of it as the intentional bad stitch in the otherwise flawless weaving- so your perfection does not offend a testy God.
