The next Seattle musical performance that I am going to is
Puccini's Tosca on January 14, 2015.
It is one of the most famous operas.
My favorite audio recording is the one with
Jose Carreras and Katia Ricciarelli, Herbert von Karajan conducting.
Here's Placido Domingo performing the most famous part of the 3rd act.
I was born and grew up in a fantastic place called Akademgorodok near Novosibirsk, Russia. You can see a lot of forest if you zoom out. It is a town built specifically for a University and a number of research institutes. My parents both worked in such institutes, and so did parents of most of my friends, and maybe that's why I decided to become a researcher myself.
