Comment:        Re: SHK 10.2238 Re: Mrs. Bottom

Basically a bass and a heavy smoker, I am yet able to sing Fenella's
part in the title role of one of Auber's operas - and very much to my
wife's delight I always do that on Sunday mornings when having a shower
- she objects to all my other musical endeavours. But I could also play
Nedar's part most rarely, let me play it:

"And last, forget not that I ne'er appear On stage because my sister,
Mrs Bottom, a midwife, as you'll know, has asked me now to come to
Macbeth's castle, there to help in matters well beyond a critic's
power."

Markus of Portici.
