hey jenny stevning . . . opera's always bugged me but i made my peace with it when i watched klaus kinski in werner herzog's film fitzcarraldo. (check out the trailers etc on youtube). i saw it then in a context that was strange enough to actually reach me as art. so i really loved this little chunk you shared. thanks. steven
Glad you enjoyed it! I can only handle little bits of opera at a time. Although, I once saw Madame Butterfly (with ticker-tape translation) and I loved it. This chunk, to me, is so beautiful it is painful. I checked out the trailer. Looks like an interesting film.Thank you.
Love this song. Sarah Brightman's version of it is one of my favorites!
I will give Sarah's version a listen. Thank you, Karly!
