I’m not the biggest fan of opera, but it’s hard to not enjoy Maria Callas singing “Habenera” from Bizet’s “Carmen.”
I performed in a late ’90s production of “Carmen” by the Mississippi Opera Company. I was superlative No. 5 — played the mayor in one scene and a soldier in another. That was back in the day when I planned on becoming a professional actor. Now, I’m a college professor who makes videos with his classes. Hmm. Guess I haven’t really changed that much.
