What happens to the woman at the end is what happened to me............


..........when I saw this video. It's wonderful. A nice, happy way to spend some time and have it stay with you throughout the day....as we wait for the Massachusetts results!

Il Travatore?

Z said...

More than one opera's arias there, Ducky. I'm very, very familiar with the melodies for having sung them but don't have a memory for 'from which opera?'....

maybe Elbro or FT can help us out.
I'm a whiz on La Boheme and that's about it...Oh, and I've done the Lakme Duet from NORMA and I know where some of the wonderful men's choruses come from but I have to admit to LACKING in "name that tune" in opera.

Jazz "name that tune" could net me the big purse if there was a contest!

That was a charming uplifting treat!

A consumptive suffering in the snow, z? Whodathunkit.

Beautiful singing. I'm down in the Sacramento Valley now, having gotten off work, and I'm about to drive up I-80 to my cabin at 4,000 feet, gonna see if I can get up to it or whether I'll be turned back. I have a 4X4 Toyota RAV4 Limited with V6 and, more importantly, snow tires, but I don't have chains.

The wind is absolutely horrendous outside, massive gusts. I wonder if I'll have power and massive drifts of snow, whilst I wait for Brown MA results.

Beautiful!! I love opera and that would have really made me cry, too.

"La Traviata della trattoria in la groceria grande," said he in his best fractured Italian.

That was the deathbed love duet from the last act of Verdi's La Traviata followed by Libiamo -- the jovial "Drinking Song" that ends the first act.

In a fully staged production that enormous soprano would have a difficult time convincing an audience that her character, Violetta, was dying of consumption.

What a nice change of pace! Thank you, Z.

PS: That beautiful marketplace reminds me of a similar facility in Philadelphia.

The name of the deathbed duet is Parigi, O cara.

Violetta is dying. Her lover Alfredo knows it, but they sing, "We'll find a have, you and I together, where the sun shines brightly and there's no bad weather ..." (terrible translation, but that really is the idea). Aren't you glad it's sung in Italian?

At any rate, Opera sure beats the usual musical fare we have to put up with in public places these days. Is this a common ocurrence in Europe?

Oh my Z, how joyful this is. It fills one's heart, you know? I love it.

It would be so great to be shopping and suddenly there would be such heavenly music. We surely could use more of this.

Faith, it is charming, isn't it!

Ducky, she mostly suffers in the attic and why the comment!?

BZ...good luck.let us know

GLAD you all like it...yes, imagine, Pris?
Leticia, I like to listen, I just have to plead ignorance, sadly, to much of it.

FT...I knew I could count on your filling us in. thanks so much

this made my day so much brighter - thanks, z!

snowing here at 6000' in the san bernardino mountains. since our driveway is so vertical with a 43 degree turn in it, i've moved the 4x4 down to the bottom of the drive. i'm supposed to be meeting with a client on the flatland tomorrow; we'll see if i'm able to get down the mountain...

I've just begun my journey to operatic fluency. I enjoyed this very very much.

Dan said...

I love this; the way it rose out of the market place was perfect. The creativity of man, the voices echoing through the expansive building, the response of the people, even the girl brought to tears at the end, it was beautifully creative. As a homeschooler we use the concept of beauty often in lessons involving the development of our worldview. I will be using this Video right here on your blog in one of our up-coming classes. Thanks for putting it up.
