  1. Given the actors, I take it that "Turandot" will not actually be the opera, but just the story. Too bad. The music is always the best part of operas. The stories are never actually worth a damn.

  2. Well, well. I thought the days of the Sprouse brothers were over. My girls used to love their Disney show so I am sure they will be thrilled to see Dylan Sprouse starring in a new film.

    1. he's back and he is all muscly. I never liked the boys when they were little, too fake and talentless. Maybe he learned how to act in the meantime?

    2. Probably not. Either you got it or you don't. I'm going with the latter for that one.

    3. it goes for Bridget Mandler or Handler too, forgot her name, still remember how my beloved Undateable got cancelled after she ruined the third season with her fakeass acting :( Emily Osment and Greg Skulkin are the only Disney stars of the recent generation that I can handle.

  3. Puccini's Turandot is immortal; so is the aria in the final act performed by the late Pavarotti (Nessun Dorma). Now a chinese movie based on the opera; interesting and intriguing!

    1. Oooh, I totally forgot Nessun Dorma was from Turandot! Loved that aria. My fave opera is probably Borodin's Prince Igor!
