My Happy Thanksgiving with 700 YouTube Subscribers

Hey, everybody! I know I haven’t been as active on YouTube as I should’ve been, mostly because I have been busying myself with making fanart on DeviantArt, which, mind you, I have been enjoying a lot. Additionally, I have also dealt with my fair share of academic priorities like my exams, which I have generally been passing very well, and my application to the American Liberal Arts College, Bard College Berlin, in which I will attend tomorrow’s open day. However, I just want to express my joy and gratitude of having gained 700 subscribers on YouTube and, in these trying times of juggling lots of activities, I am still very enthusiastic about this and I would love to thank you all for putting up with me for the past seven years I have been on YouTube and even for the past five years I have been an online reviewer. Since December is rapidly rolling around the corner, I see it absolutely fit to make reviews for the annual Red Ribbon Reviewers’ Month, as currently pioneered by my fellow online reviewer colleague, Eli Stone aka The Cartoon Hero. I have a lot of content I would love to share with all of you, my dear viewers and, as usual, do expect some opera reviews, album reviews, especially the holiday-themed ones, lookbacks and tributes to the animated TV show Christmas specials, maybe a few slams, and possibly some film reviews. Moreover, I will be spending my Christmas break in Cebu for a couple of days and in Hong Kong for the next several days with my family, thus making these review plans interspersed with the time I will spend with them. Boy, I do have a lot of things to accomplish. In spite of all that, I still want to thank you all for your time, patience, and willingness to put with me in everything I do. I will see you all in the next upload. Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel, take care, and have a blessed, happy, and awesome Thanksgiving. https://www.youtube.com/user/operaanimelover369

Blue-Hued Teenage Admiration drawn by me

This piece of Brickubbles and Boomercup fanart, which is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Boomercup Month, is dedicated to A.J. Miller aka AJthePPGfan who is celebrating his birthday today. So, A.J. I wish you a lot of love, joy, happiness, beauty, strength, triumph, and abundance on your very special day as well as in your life as an artist and as a person. This is also dedicated to all of the hardcore and awesome Brickubbles and Boomercup shippers out there. So, I hope you all enjoy this.   I’m sure you all had crushes no matter where you are in your life and you might have had butterflies in your stomachs, thus giving you that sensation of feeling so enticed when you see the apple of your eye. Well, the Blues can pretty much attest to that, especially when they were teenagers.   Ah, Boomer and Bubbles aka The Blues. They wear their emotions on their sleeves. They are the nicest and most sympathetic people of Team Xtreme. They are also really creative. They seemed to be truly and indubitably made for each other. As much as I am a huge Boomubbles fan and OTP shipper, as I do believe that they are the best color-coded couple, I will admit this, I also like Brickubbles and Boomercup so much as cute, innocent pairings. However, as you can tell, I am also a major Brickercup, Butchubbles, and Blossoomer fan and OTP shipper. At least, I can say that, in my most humble opinion, Brickubbles and Boomercup are more desirable in my eyes that Blossick and Butchercup combined, though they do not approach the OTP levels of Brickercup, Butchubbles, Blossutch, Blossoomer, and Boomubbles combined.   Boomer is seventeen years old while Bubbles is fifteen years old and they are both in the eleventh grade all back in the year 2009.   Bubbles the cheerleader, the girls’ track star, the star artist, the aspiring actress, singer, and musician, and the most lovable girl in school is totally enamored with seventeen-year-old Brick the most popular young man in school, the MVP of the basketball team, and one of Townsville’s most well-rounded students. Sure, she has her favorite teddy-bear boyfriend Boomer by her side and she loves her darling strongman Butch, but Bubbles goes crazy over Brick’s signature swagger and his way of showing the ladies a good time, which should be no surprise, as Brick and Bubbles have been really good friends when they were Kindergarteners and when the Ruffs and the Puffs joined forces as one amazing superhero team. Plus, they have each others’ backs for great measure.   Boomer the MVP of the soccer team, his school band’s lead singer, the aspiring actor, the boys’ track star, the Renaissance man, and one of the most handsome young men in school is head over heels in love with sixteen-year-old Buttercup the MVP of the volleyball team, the toughest and strongest girl in school, and the all-around athlete. As much as he loves his darling Bubbles and is so enamored with Blossom’s brand of awesomeness, Boomer just can’t get his eyes off of how strong, tough, and determined Buttercup really is.   However, we all know, at the end of the day, these were just silly, adorable teen crushes they had back in the days. At least one can rest assured, that the cuteness factor for these pairings held up rather well.   Well, I hope you all enjoyed this piece of Brickubbles and Boomercup fanart. See you all in the next submission.   Brick, Bubbles, Boomer, and Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.

The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades drawn by me

“I study nuclear science I love my classes I got a crazy teacher, he wears dark glasses Things are going great, and they’re only getting better I’m doing all right, getting good grades The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades I gotta wear shades   I’ve got a job waiting for my graduation Fifty thou a year, buys a lot of beer Things are going great, and they’re only getting better I’m doing all right, getting good grades The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades I gotta wear shades   Well I’m heavenly blessed and worldly wise I’m a peeping-tom techie with x-ray eyes Things are going great, and they’re only getting better I’m doing all right, getting good grades The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades I gotta wear shades   I study nuclear science I love my classes I got a crazy teacher, he wears dark glasses Things are going great, and they’re only getting better I’m doing all right, getting good grades The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades   I gotta wear shades I gotta wear shades I gotta wear shades” – “The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades”, originally sung by Timbuk3 from their debut album “Greetings from Timbuk3”, Released in 1986.   This piece of Boomercup fanart, which is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Boomercup Month, is dedicated to Marisa aka Absolhunter251, Lunaria aka Luna-rii, Sano aka Sano-BR, and Shannen Ngo aka SmoothCriminalGirl16 who are celebrating their birthdays today. So, Marisa, Lunaria, Sano, Shannen, I wish you a lot of love, joy, beauty, prosperity, happiness, and immense abundance in your lives as artists and as people and I wish you all such marvelous birthdays. Moreover, I dedicate this to all of the Boomercup shippers out there. With that said, I hope you enjoy this piece of Boomercup fanart and soak up its goodness.   Here we have Boomer and Buttercup who are fresh out of their workout routine and they look absolutely stunning with their sleeveless shirts and short shorts, thus making them quite a formidable duo consisting of a lovable dumb muscle and a fiery brawler. While I have always kept Boomercup as my cute, innocent pairing for life, I want you to take a good, close look at the shirt colors and the sunglasses frames in terms of who I ship Boomer and Buttercup as my OTPs for life and those who ended up having such lovely children from their respective spouses. Don’t be shy, as I know this will be fun, especially when you type it down on the comments below.   For this Boomercup submission, I have grown up on the classic song “The Future’s so Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades” when I caught this as the ending credits to Disney’s “An Extremely Goofy Movie” as an eight-year-old boy traveling to San Francisco alongside my mother and younger sister staying at a relative’s place. The version I caught was sung by Pat Benatar, but I was pleasantly surprised to know that the original version was sung by Timbuk3. I listened to both versions and I have to say that I found myself leaning towards the Pat Benatar version more mostly because of nostalgia and the overall feel of this particular rendition. So, I hope you also enjoy both of these versions, as you gaze into the loveliness that is Boomercup.   The original Timbuk3 version from 1986 in music video form   The Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo version from 2000   Well, I hope you all enjoyed this and I will see you all in the next submission. Take care!   Boomer and Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.

An Athletic Love Triangle For The Ages drawn by me

This piece of Brickercup vs Boomercup fanart, which is part of my dearest BrickercupMasterX3’s Boomercup month, is dedicated to Tayler D. aka Taydrewa7x who celebrated her birthday three days ago, Lea Moncada aka zeetrip and Kazu aka KazunaPikachu who celebrated their birthdays two days ago, and WILDO aka Webfriends246 who celebrated her birthday yesterday. So, Tayler, Lea, Kazu, Wildo, I hope you lovely ladies had such awesome, wonderful, charming, dazzling, and grand birthday celebrations. I wish you a lot of love, joy, abundance, and happiness in your lives as artists and as people. This is also dedicated to all of the Brickercup and Boomercup shippers out there. So, do enjoy and soak up that Brickercup and Boomercup goodness. What happens when you have a seventeen-year-old basketball star who was dubbed as one of the most popular and well-rounded boys in school and his seventeen-year-old brother who is younger than him by a month, is a soccer star, and was deemed as one of the most lovable and talented boys to grace Townsville High, eyeing for a sixteen-year-old volleyball star who had such a fiery and tough reputation when she was a schoolgirl? Why you would get a sport pun-filled high school love triangle, as Brick, Boomer, and Buttercup were Townsville High’s MVPs of the basketball, soccer, and volleyball teams back in 2009 when they were eleventh graders. Sure, Brick and Boomer are rather possessive of Buttercup, but as you can obviously tell, she is not enjoying this. Sometimes she even wonders why these two gentlemen would ever fall in love with her in the first place and she is no damsel in distress by any stretch of the imagination. Well, I hope you all enjoyed this. If you to ask me which Buttercup-centered pairing I prefer to have as my OTP and which one I prefer to have as my cute, innocent pairing, the answer should be clear as night and day. However, I would love to know from you guys if you prefer Brickercup or Boomercup via comments, as I am sure I will get some pretty interesting answers. So, dear viewers, until the next submission.

The Return of the Blossoomer Family drawn by me

This piece of Blossoomer fanart, which is part of my art trade with my dearest friend and fellow DeviantArtist Kaitlyn aka KatyGorl, is dedicated to zainab aka zaameen who celebrated her birthday three days ago, Janna aka Lucy101 who celebrated her birthday two days ago, and Joseph aka Ichik11 and Neru Kim aka ShugoandRiegel who celebrated their birthdays yesterday. So, Zainab, Janna, Joseph, Neru, I wish you a lot of love, happiness, joy, and abundance in your lives as artists and as people. Wie wir auf deutsch sagen, ich wünsche euch allen viel Liebe, Glück, Freude und Reichtum in euren Leben als Künstler und als Menschen. Como se dice en español, os deseo mucho amor, felicidad, alegría y abundancia en vuestras vidas como artistas y como personas. This is also dedicated to all of the wonderful Blossoomer shippers out there. So, enjoy and soak up that Blossoomer awesomeness, sweetness, and goodness. Boomer, Blossom and their dearest daughter have obviously struck again. This time, they have brought more wonderful members to this sweet family namely Brittney, Beau, Becky, and Bella. Since we got to know how Bloom came to be, let us get acquainted with the other four members of the Blossoomer quintuplets, who are all at the tender age of seven years old. Right after Bloom was born, her siblings Brittney, Beau, Becky, and Bella followed. Much like their sister Bloom Amanda Green, Brittney Jane “BJ” Green, Beauregard Alain “Beau” Green, Becca Danielle “Becky” Green, and Bella Donna “Belladonna” Green were born on July 25, 2011. It was said that while Bloom was placid yet jolly, BJ was more rambunctious, Beau was calm, Becky was energetic and hyperactive, and Belladonna was quiet and sweet when they emerged from Blossom’s womb. During Team Xtreme’s college years, Bloom, BJ, Beau, Becky, and Belladonna, Boomer’s and Blossom’s quintuplets, alongside their cousins Brandon, Buddy, Brea, and Betty, who are Butch’s and Bubbles’ quadruplets, Beatrice “Bea”, Bailey Christina “BC Jr.”, and Bradford “Brad, who are Brick’s and Buttercup’s triplets, would live and be raised by their grandparents Mr. Green, Mrs. Bellum-Green, Professor Utonium, and Mrs. Keane-Utonium every weekday. After school and every weekend, Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles would come over to be the parents they ought to be, thus spending lots of quality time with them and seeing them grow in love, health, and excellence. Brittney Jane or BJ is a daddy’s girl in every single way. Even though her birth name is Brittney and her second name is Jane, she always loves it when her father calls her BJ and her mother does appreciate it when she calls her by her nickname, except on some occasions when BJ is in trouble does Blossom use her full name of Brittney Jane Green. Personality-wise, BJ takes after Blossom’s intelligence, articulacy, and diplomacy as well as Boomer’s occasionally rough-and-tumble yet sympathetic nature and she is a bit more of a tomboy as opposed to the more ladylike Bloom. However, there are times that BJ can be rather bossy and be a bit of a know-it-all, which can easily cause a lot of conflicts with Bloom, thus making these two strong-minded sisters butt heads on more than one occasion. In spite of all that, they can have their moments where they can mellow out and be occasionally spaced-out whenever they do not fight crime. BJ shows a strong interest mainly in heavy metal music, but she also loves jazz, rhythm and blues, and soul. Moreover, much like Bloom, she is a fan of literature, as she loves reading J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter”, C.S. Lewis’s “The Chronicles of Narnia”, J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings”, and Louisa May Alcott’s “Little Women”. BJ aspires to be a singer-songwriter much like how her father was a singer in his high school years and she wants to combine the elements of heavy metal and soul to make it be one interesting blend for people to hear. Moreover, she would also love to be a poetess and an author of science fiction novels when she grows up. BJ’s signature power is her electric snowball, in which she forms a ball made of raw energy and makes it encased in snow, thus giving opponents an initial freezing sensation and followed by a powerful electrocution they will never forget. Aside from that, she is very cognizant in terms of how her enemies will attack meaning she can spot their every strength and weakness, thus taking advantage of these particular traits. Moreover, she and Bloom have a special combo attack they do together which is called the Freezing Electric Baseball Bats of Doom. Both Bloom and BJ would form an ice-encased electric baseball bat akin to the one made by Boomer and they would point their bats to their opponents, thus having an icy shockwave be emitted freezing them and eventually giving them be immobilized by the electric shocks. In terms of languages, she can speak French, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and German. Beau is very much a mama’s boy, though he is close to his father too. His poise, sense of class, willingness to lead by example, sense of empathy, and strict moral code all make him seem like he is akin to Blossom if she were a little boy of seven years old, thus making him the split image of his mother. His moments of spacing out are few and far between. However, one should be careful with Beau. While he is sympathetic, kind, and a gentleman in any and every single way, he can get furious if one were to be so brazen to hurt his sisters, his mother, his father, his uncles, and his aunties. He loves playing the piano, as he is also passionate about composers like Bach, Czerny, Dvorak, Debussy, Britten, Vivaldi, Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms, Schumann, and Schubert. He is currently learning Schubert’s Ave Maria and it is one of his most favorite pieces. Aside from classical music, Beau also loves jazz, Broadway musicals, J-Pop, Enka, and…

Team Xtreme: Townsville’s Finest Superheroes drawn by me

This piece of RRB/PPG fanart is dedicated to Carrie aka Carriedreamer who celebrated her birthday a week ago and whose fanfic “As Time Goes By” is so worth reading and is freaking awesome, Miss-Beastly and RyanSilberman who celebrated their birthdays yesterday, and alin aka abby-sanban and alexus aka GalaticX-Studios18 who are celebrating their birthdays today. So, Carrie, Miss-Beastly, Ryan, Alin, Alexus, I wish you a lot of love, joy, happiness, beauty, strength, and abundance in your lives as artists and as people. Como se dice en español, os deseo mucho amor, alegría, felicidad, belleza, fuerza y abundancia en vuestras vidas como artistas y personas. I would also love to dedicate this to everyone who loves teaming up the Rowdyruff Boys and the Powerpuff Girls into one awesome superhero team. I hope you all enjoy this. Move over, Justice League. Step aside, Teen Titans. Take a hike, Avengers. Because Townsville’s bravest, finest, and most awesome superheroes are in the house. Ever since they were children they have been bringing security, honor, and strength to not only Townsville, thus becoming one of America’s finest superhero teams of all time akin to the Justice League and the Teen Titans, but also the world. Is there anything else one needs to say about this six-person superhero team? It is rather self-explanatory but let us who they are. From left to right, and from eldest to youngest, we have Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles. 26-year-old Brick “The Bludgeoner” Green is the eldest member of Team Xtreme, as well as the leader, thus functioning as the Team Dad. It also helps that he is the eldest son of Mr. Green and Mrs. Bellum-Green, as he and his brothers were taken to be adopted by them, more specifically Mrs. Bellum-Green, and, therefore, make both HIM and Mojo Jojo lose custody of the Rowdyruff Boys. His combination of strength, street-smarts, and book smarts certainly make him a fearless leader. He is commanding and tough towards his foes and loving, loyal, and willing to sacrifice his life for the sake of his teammates. He can be impulsive whenever things go awry and there are times his confidence can tread towards hubris, but he still means well to them and they, in turn, help him in whatever circumstance he is going through. His special power is pyrokinesis and many of his main attacks are fire-based. His hobbies and interests include martial arts, mechanics, weightlifting, basketball, soccer, physics, wrestling, automobiles, specializing in different forms of cuisine, and history. He is happily married to Buttercup and they have ten children named Bea, Blaze, Brent, Brooke, Brianna, Bane, Bethany, Brina, Bona, and Brett. 26-year-old Butch “The Baron of Berserk” Green is the second eldest member of Team Xtreme and is the muscle of the group. Whenever there is a heavy duty task that needs to be done, he accomplishes it in flying colors. While Brick acts as the main big brother of the group, Butch functions as the second big brother, thus making them close not only as brothers, but also as comrades seeing that they are also two days apart. He is always battle-ready, as he uses a combination of brute strength, pure brawn, and raw animal instinct to help him carry through. His teammates always rely on him and Buttercup to kick criminal butt and protect them from all forms of harm. He is extremely aggressive towards his enemies to the point of overdoing his attacks, mostly to dish out what harm they would cause to his teammates. However, with his teammates he can be surprisingly sympathetic especially to Blossom and Bubbles, fun-loving yet extremely competitive to Buttercup, loyal to Brick, and competitive to Boomer all while maintaining his savage side. Aside from creating forcefields, which have become extremely applicable whenever it comes to protecting his teammates from energy-related attacks, he bears the main element of wind, as his deadly Tornado Punch comes in handy when beating up criminals. Butch’s hobbies and interests include weightlifting, bodybuilding, wrestling, martial arts, American football, basketball, soccer, mechanics, physics, monster trucks, riding his motorcycle, and automobiles in general. He is happily married to Blossom with eight children named Azalea, Brendan, Blake, Bradley, Belle, Brenda, Belinda, and Abigail. He even has three children with Bubbles, his life partner, named Brandon, Brea, and Betty. 26-year-old Boomer “The Fleet Athlete” Green is the optimistic athlete of this superhero group. Being a superbly holy matrimony of brute strength, massive endurance, and lightning speed, he is really reliable not only in battle but in many everyday situations. Personality-wise he is an optimist, the occasional funny man, and he is pretty much the sympathetic dumb muscle of the group. Through moments of joy and sorrow, he is always there to comfort his teammates and give them abundant moral support. He is the type of guy whose heart is always in the right place, thus having he and Bubbles gelling the group in its entirety with flying colors. He has a competitive yet tight relationship with Brick and Butch, as evidenced with all of the wrestling, martial arts, weightlifting, and occasional bodybuilding these three brothers do. A lot of his powers are clearly linked to lightning and raw energy, as his special power is creating objects out of raw energy like a baseball bat, shuriken, and a lasso. Boomer’s hobbies and interests include music, American football, hockey, soccer, filmmaking, anime, video games, martial arts, weightlifting, swimming, languages, sculpting, and theater. He is happily married to Bubbles with eight children named Bailey, Barley, Ben, Brittany, Bonnie, Birdie, Belina, and Bali. Boomer even has five children from his life partner Blossom named Bloom, Brittney, Beau, Becky, and Bella. 25-year-old Blossom “The Commander and the Leader” Utonium-Green is the brains, tactician, and Team Mom of Team Xtreme. What makes Blossom lethal in the battlefield is her accuracy, especially when it comes to acknowledging her opponents strong and weak points. She even uses her smarts when solving various problems, as well as her profession…

Happy Halloween from the Blossutch Family drawn by me

This piece of Blossutch fanart is dedicated to Sue aka yosuehere, Red aka Redku, and glendon crepin aka G-Crepin who celebrated their birthdays a few days ago and Nathan Battise aka FUNImation2002 and Tyla aka RedSmilaSmiles who are celebrating their birthdays today. So, Sue, Red, Glendon, Nathan, Tyla, I wish you a lot of love, joy, happiness, abundant blessings, prosperity, and many more marvelous adventures in your lives as artists and as people. I would also love to dedicate this to all of the Blossutch shippers out there. So, I hope you all enjoy this and Happy Halloween.   Well, it’s Halloween and Team Xtreme’s very own Beastly Brawn, Brainy Beauty Watermelon Couple Butch and Blossom are celebrating this wonderful holiday with their children. As you can clearly see, they are all dressed to the nines in different elaborate costumes.   On the left-hand side, we have the eldest daughter Azalea, twin sons Brendan and Blake, and younger son Bradley.   On the center, we have main attraction, Butch and his gorgeous wife Blossom who are holding golden goblets filled with red wine, more specifically Pinot Noir.   Finally, on the right-hand side, we have Bradley’s twin sister Belle, sororal twins Brenda and Belinda, and youngest daughter Abigail.   Let’s talk about their costumes starting off with the parents.   26-year-old Butch Green is donning a costume which is the result of Kratos the Ghost of Sparta bearing a lovechild with a vampiress, as one can tell. Essentially, Butch is dressed as a cross between an ancient warlord and Count Dracula. Quite the fascinating combination.   His 25-year-old wife Blossom Utonium-Green is donning a costume which is reminiscent of Blood Countess Carmilla from Vampire Hunter D meets Lady Oscar and Marie Antoinette from The Rose of Versailles. As opposed to Butch’s savage warlord, Blossom fits the bill as an aristocratic lady who is also a vampiress, though a lot more subtle about it.   Let’s also not forget that since this gorgeous couple is in their twenties they are free to drink some of that fine Pinot Noir in golden goblets, just like how the nobles drink from these chalices in the olden times.   The children’s costumes were a lot of fun to do. One should not neglect the fact that Blossom, who is really savvy in terms of science and health, is the one who ensures that their makeup and everything they put on their skin, in general, are hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, all-natural, and will not do damage to their skin whatsoever. All right, the kids get the floor.   5 going on 6-year-old eldest daughter Azalea Bernadette Green dons The Wicked Witch of the West’s costume. Seeing that she is a fan of both the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz and the musical Wicked, as Elphaba is her most favorite character, she saw it fit to put on the witch’s hat and makeup with glee.   3-year-old Brendan James Green is Quasimodo from Victor Hugo’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame. For someone who is currently a toddler, he really finds both the original Victor Hugo novel and the Disney film of the same name to be very intriguing. It also helps that he has a certain attachment to the Disney Quasimodo, as he considers him one of his role models, as opposed to the version from the original novel, who is still very complex in his eyes.   Brendan’s fraternal twin brother Blake Francis Green is Banquo’s ghost from William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. It is no surprise that both boys love novels and plays that deal with dark and complex themes with courtesy of Butch and Blossom who have given the novels they have read to them while they were still babies. Blake’s austere and silent presence as Banquo’s ghost is definitely a fine contrast to Brendan’s more impassioned attitude as Quasimodo.   2-year-old Bradley Oliver Green is The Wolfman or in this case The Wolf Boy. Bradley is the type of boy who loves to show off his wild side and he has a lot of fun with it. Of course, he is also a huge animal lover, which is also why he dons this particular costume.   His twin sister Belle Marguerite Green is Amneris from Giuseppe Verdi’s Aida. Here we have Belle embodying Aida’s rival for Radames’s love, the Egyptian princess who is well-known for her power and fierceness as well as being the Pharaoh’s most beloved daughter Amneris. Her glare will make you wish that you held your tongue. Butch and Blossom took their kids to watch Aida at the Townsville Opera House and it was at that moment that Belle was totally fixated with the mezzo-soprano who sang Amneris, especially in the judgment scene.   1-year-old Brenda Katelyn Green is The Queen of the Night from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s The Magic Flute known in German as Die Zauberflöte. When Blossom had quality time with Brenda and Belinda, they would always listen to an album of a coloratura soprano singing operas in different languages. The ones that stood out to her darling youngest twin daughters were The Queen’s two arias “O Zittre Nicht Mein Lieber Sohn” and “Der Hölle Rache” and Lucia’s “Regnava Nel Silenzio” and The Mad Scene. Brenda really feels attached to the Queen of the Night, as this character wears a lot of gorgeous costumes depending on the production.   Brenda’s twin sister Belinda Kiara Green is Lucia Ashton from Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor. As opposed to Brenda, Belinda is completely fascinated with Donizetti’s doomed and tragic young heroine. Lucia’s Mad Scene is one moment in this famous Donizetti opera that stood out to her the most, as this heroine felt betrayed by the true love of her life, thus being in a marriage she did not want to be in, and goes insane because of these circumstances all because of a feud going on between her family and the family of her lover.   8-month-old Abigail Barbara Green is dressed…
