Classical Notes

Krulwich at the Oper(etta), encore

If your memory is long enough, you might recall NPR economics reporter Robert Krulwich producing a piece which explained interest rates in the form of an Italian opera spoof, Rato Interresso.

Today on Morning Edition, Krulwich returned to form with a story from his current spot at the NPR science desk, in which he plumbs the possibilities of lobster geriatrics, by way of Gilbert & Sullivan.

BTW: anyone know if Rato Interresso is online somewhere? I have a tape copyburied in a box somewhere, but I couldn't find it online via npr.org or Google...
