Flash Opera!

While we are at it, here's "Do Re Mi" at a train station in Belgium (YouTube seems to have tons of these improvs from all over the place):

In case the embeds didn't work, here are the links.

    The one at Antwerp is among the best of these events. My Belgian friends claimed that it was one of the first. I don't know about that, but I had heard of one at Grand Central (NY) long ago.

    The sheer joie d'vivre that comes out in these events is exhilarating and must move even the most staid spirit. And for just a brief while it lifts one out of the sheer misery of our own hellish railway stations and bazaars. Our version of these public celebrations of the human spirit is an obstructive and noisy movie shoot of some crappy song-and-and sequence, blocking all traffic, including ambulances. Need more be said about where we are?
