Finally, you can vent your bad mood musically: The Duetto buffo di due gatti (Comic Duet for Two Cats) by Gioachino Rossini provides excellent opportunity to do just that by means of music and mime. In reality, the vocal piece was not written by the Italian opera composer at all, but compiled as a pot-pourri by the English composer Robert Lucas Pearsall (under the pseudonym of 'G. Berthold') who fell back on Rossini's opera 'Otello' as well. But that does no harm to the cheerful dramatic scene with its imitative onomatopoeic sounds. This edition is based on the first edition from 1825, thus containing the 'original text', so to speak, of the humorous 'Cat Duet'. The obvious performers would be two cats, two tomcats or a mixed duet with cat and tomcat. Enjoy .- and hiss well!
