Matt Wilkins called tonight, and we talked about this and that for well over an hour. At one point in the conversation, his brother Bray came up, and I asked him how Bray's summer opera internship in Boston went; Matt said fine, and mentioned something about Bray's time in Falmouth (pronounced "FOUL-muth"). Being familiar with British and New England pronunciation - and not being familiar with Cape Cod geography or opera workshops - I supposed that, here, we were actually talking about a real live place spelled, "Foulmouth."
"FOUL-muth? As in...Foul-MOUTH?" I laughed.
"Uh, yeah, that's what it's called," Matt said, but with a sudden hint of doubt in his voice.
I let it go, thinking that maybe someone was playing a joke on him, or that maybe some artsy-punk students had decided to name their own "new school," but nope, Matt was right. I did some Googling, and came up with this article and this article, which led me to the College Light Opera Company in - lo and behold - Falmouth, Cape Cod, MA.
Well, I'll be.
