Subject: Escamillo & Alicia on youtube!!

Oh, these are hysterically fun and SO GOOD!! Thanks to Escamillo/Andres for sending them to me! Alicia is one talented woman, Andres! I can see she must keep you warm at night!**smile**

Coppelia (Alicia & Matilde);

Simeona (Alicia & Andrés);

Turco (Alicia & turkish dancers);

Pedantoni (Alicia alone).

Here's a little bit of translation Andres sent to me, also:

I know that the meaning of the song is important. It is based in word games, because

"Tú me has ..." = You have ...(done something)... to me
sounds exactly as
"Tú meas ... " = You pee ..

Below is the translation of Simeona, for those who speak Shakespeare's language !

Turkish dancers: Supposedly they sing in Turkish the popular song Besame Mucho, but the things they say and suggest are really outrageous, and Alicia tries to convince the audience that this is the original lyrics.

Minerva Pedantoni: impossible to translate. Minerva is the arch-famous ballet star in complete decline. For example she says "When I danced in Berlin... terrible!! The wall tumbled down !! "

Simeona:

Tú me has a veces, vida mía, confesado
You have sometimes, my darling, confessed to me
You pee sometimes ..

Que me has seguido, pero nunca me has amado
That you have followed me but never loved me
That you pee frequently.. (I always loved him, I told him)

Tú me has de a poco, retirado tu cariño
You have bit per bit, denied your love
You pee bit per bit .... (ok, let´s not make a big thing of it)

Mientras yo me ando entusiasmando como un niño.
While I go on exciting myself as a child !
While I go on peeing excited like a child (I´m getting excited too..)

Ay, Simeona, dime si me quieres, si me amas, si me adoras
Ah, Simeona, tell me if you want me, if you love me, if you adore me

Tú me has de noche, engañado como a un necio
You have at night, betrayed me like a fool
You pee at night ... (two times, or three when it's cold)
(bah, some little thing..)

Tú me has muy claro demostrado tu desprecio..
You have very clearly shown your disdain (I did not! You saw it ?)
You pee very clear..(when I drink white wine..)

Tú me has tan fuerte.. mente herido coqueteando..
You have so hard hurt me with your flirting
You pee so hard .. (Ay! .. who told him ?)

Mientras yo me ando por la calle emborrachando !
While I go on getting drunk by the streets!
While I go on peeing by the streets, drunk (hmm.. he´s an alcoholic, not for me)

Ay, Simeona, dime si me quieres, si me amas, si me adoras
Ah, Simeona, tell me if you want me, if you love me, if you adore me
End: (how can I tell him I love him ? There´s something I´ll do here..)

Un abrazo

katdelighted!

Thanks, Sandra. Glad you enjoyed them, too!

For those who may not be familiar with Escamillo/Andres. He and his wife live in Buenos Aires and he is a long-time member of Mudcat.

"Ay Simeona" can also be understood as "Ay, sí, meona" "meona" meaning "who pees often" (fem. form)

Alice and myself are so happy today ! We have been reading these posts together and loughing aloud. Also feeling the affection that is so evident. Thank you friends, this is very important for us.

Monique, you are right, that's another implied joke. There is another one, very subtle: when I say "si me adoras" (if you adore me), it is heard just as "si, meadoras" (yes, you peeing women)

Now in preparation:
Tropical Lust: the latin mature diva and his latin mature singer/lover
Alice Tupper: the prodigious little girl and his black partner
Pequeñete : the prodigious little Flamenco singer and the Spanish dancer
... and more to come

LMAO! Thanks again, sincerely, un abrazo / Andrés and Alicia

Wonderful stuff. The Siamese Coppelia cracked me up completely. Thank you for sharing, kat. Thank you Escamillo and Alicia.

Where did this performance take place?

Andres, you have no idea how many times I have deeply regretted my inability to connect with you those years ago in Florida. That trip was awful for me from beginning to end with nothing going the way it should have. I'm glad your reason for being there is no longer needed but I wish it had worked out.

On the other hand, I am overjoyed to see the videos!!!! Though it may not have been so awhile back, I can now say you are a man truly blessed.

Much Love,

Pat

it's sooo gooood.. to receive your congratulations !
Spaw: yes. What this lady has made out of me in these 4 years is a real miracle. And her improvement as an actress was due (a little bit) to me too...

Sinsull: This was part of the 2008 season of the (crazy) Ballet 40-90 (because members are 40 to 90 years old), August to November 2008 at the Teatro Empire, Buenos Aires, Argentina (where we are from).

Amos, thank you, friend, don't you mind a hug from a mildly wet guy?

Lonesome, there's a kiss for you from Alicia (bra strap down)

Alice, forgive me, I did what I could, because the director said "no mic" and the hall was large, anyway, I'm happy you liked these crazy things

You can watch other videos by this group, just searching "ballet 40-90"

Please tell me who has uploaded videos to Youtube, or whether there is an index in Mudcat for videos

Un abrazo for all / Andrés

I´ve just begun to see some videos and I am really impressed by their quality of art. And I learnt how to search for more videos (because a search in Youtube for the word Mudcat does not bring results).
Thanks, Katalina Linda !

Hi, Andres-
I just came across an old conversation we had about your singing a Paul Robeson song - and now I see this! Both of you do very well with comedy, and you have a great voice. I really enjoyed this, although I had expected Robeson.

All the best to you.

-Joe-

Your memory banks are amazingly efficient, Joe ! I´m so glad you enjoyed these crazy things ! Indeed I keep doing old beauties like Old Man River, Shenandoah, Lazy Bones, etc. but to make a video, the singer needs PRODUCTION, which was already made by professionals for this show.

I also participate in one of the most prestigious choral groups (Lagun Onak) with Bs.Aires Philarmonic Orchestra, and the victims are Mozart, Dvorak, Beethoven...

I promess I´ll record a CD this year, with Robeson´s songs, as soon as I accept the dictatorship of the sound engineers. If I found one who is not deaf. :))

Thanks for your comments, un abrazo / Andrés
