I dont find that a joke :(
I find that it was something Freddie always enjoyed and wanted to do in life, sing with an opera singer, remember he always loved opera, it showed in his music with Queen!
Not many rockstars could GET AWAY with it like Freddie could! :D
One thing I wish they would do is re-record the orchestral parts with real instruments. The synths are pretty good for their time, but ultimately end up letting down an otherwise brilliant album.
If only Freddie had yielded to David Richards' arguments for using a real orchestra... The real instruments they did use on Barcelona the track make all the difference.
