RTO comments on Salome

King Herod: Magnificent!

RTO: I doubt it.

let's just say that, as often happens with opera, Salome was a bit long in the tooth and the Dance of the Seven Veils was.... interesting and apparently she flashes everybody at the end (the camera cut away, so I don't know for certain update: googled to try and find a picture of the end and found this article. apparently they want the HD broadcasts to be "family friendly" so they opted not to show her.) and RTO was pretty sure that we didn't miss anything regardless of what King Herod said.


*Ms. Matilla is taking her bow*

RTO: Wipe your chin!
