(* Note: I am advised by Mr. Albert Cat that I should warn the unwary reader that these particular theatrical works are operas... I suppose, much the way one might warn an unwary shopper that particular display boxes contain live and very angry wolverines... Leaving aside questions about where you could possibly be doing your shopping, in the interest of avoiding an unpleasant retail accident, I've decided to pass Mr. Cat's caveat along to you. Be careful out there. )
