Placido Domingo - Pagliacci - No, Pagliaccio non son

And lest you think I'm uncultured, here's the ending to my favorite opera. This scene also happens to open my John Dee story, "Interlude in Lombardy," with the clown's final words.

next time you make me watch 6 minutes of opera to find out I don't understand what the clown's last words are, I'm gonna kick your funny little ass, mister! ;)

Ha! Ha!

His finals words are "La commedia e finita!" Basically, "The play is over!" or "The performance is over!"
