Squirrel in spokes floors cycling opera singer..........

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Too bad for the squirrel...................as far as opera, is that really singing or just talking in Italian to music?

Don't get me wrong...............I like music.........jazz and blues that is. That opera crap I have yet to figure out!

If his nose can't be restored to pre-accident condition it could affect the timbre of his voice.

Opera is just an earlier version of musical theatre, except the dialogue is sung most or all of the time. If it's in a foreign language, Opera is more fun if captions are projected near the stage. It seems most larger theatres now do this.
