~ a little ittybitty silly hint for all you culture-vultures about Slumdog Millionaire...

I noticed while watching Slumdog Millionaire something that I liked very much, which I have yet to see reported:

during one of the scenes where the children were stealing anything not nailed-down, the two are boosting purses from a grandstand where people are watching the performance of an opera.

this opera the folks are watching is none other than Christoph Willibald Glück’s delightful little diversion written during an otherwise mostly dead-zone between Händel and Mozart, Orfeo ed Euridyce.

the theme of this opera concerns itself with a fellow journeying into the infernal regions to rescue his beloved from hell—fitting rather intentionally I suspect with the theme of the movie...
