There comes a time in every mute dancing ghost clown’s life when he has to carry the soprano up three tall, rickety flights of wooden stairs in the New York City Opera, and then do repeated backwards somersault down them.

Oh, and then do the robot and funky chicken for 3,000 opera viewers who really have no idea how your hair got so orange. Take that, Verdi.
