A Few Things to Be Learned from the Opera


  1. Understate absolutely nothing.
  2. It’s okay to be older than your father.
  3. Sing as loud as you want about your traitorous plot—even though everyone’s just in that temple over there, no one will hear you.
  4. If you want to endear yourself to your girlfriend’s father, try to avoid declaring war on him.
  5. Break dancing is actually totally acceptable.
  6. If he’s not into you, he’s not into you. Move on. There are plenty more hippos in the Nile.
  7. On that note, forbidden love. Let’s not. Kids, don’t try that at home.
  8. Apparently, the lower the voice, the greater the evil.
  9. Always wear epic outfits.
  10. There is no facial expression too ridiculous. If you’ve got to get that note out, get it out however you have to. It will sound absolutely lovely.  

And it did.
