Venerable Wagnerian Verna ventured (how’s that for Wagnerian alliteration?) to Melbourne for the Ring. The opera Siegfried just happened to fall on her 97th birthday.
When queried as to her birthday wish, the wry Verna replied, “A naked man popping out of a CAKE”.
Melbourne must have received the memo with a typo. They served up a naked man popping out of a CAVE!
The representation of Fafner in his death throes was indeed a naked man emerging from a caVe.
The mind reels when thinking of the upcoming 100th birthday for the unstoppable Verna!
