A Night At The Opera

With apologies to the Marx Brothers, here is CBC’s very clever intro to Saturday’s Sens-Habs game.

Think Gionta can take Pavarotti’s spot on The Three Tenors line between Plácido Domingo and José Carreras?

Any opera aficionados out there know the name of the opera, the composer and the performer?

    …Genius ! …great creativity at CBC
    …My highlight of the night …remembering it as much as the excellent game Our Habs won

    CBC’s video editors, they’re so great, why does the rest of HNIC have to be so bad at times?


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

    Seriously! Whoever did this is quite talented. Too bad no one can say the same for Don Cherry

    It is the first aria for Nemorino (a Tenor) and is called ‘Quanto e bella, Quanto e cara’. It is from Donizetti’s opera The Elixir of Love (L’Elisr D’amore). Go Habs Go!
