Daniel Mitsui discovers Reason # 2,657 to love opera: it's papal. In fact, Clement IX wrote the libretto for one, La Comica del Cielo, recently performed (presumably for the first time in centuries) over at Our Lady of Pompeii in Chicago. Sounds delightful. Daniel discusses the opera, describes the splendid church and even manages to slip in a St. Liberata joke en route. Once again, if you are not reading The Lion and the Cardinal, you have no excuse.
