music for friday

you know you’re an opera fan when you hum “tancredi” in your shower.
the last two days, i hear tancredi wherever i go! so, some repost to start (my) friday:

some different versions:
Vesselina Kasarova and Maureen O’Flynn, with subtitles

, Ewa Podles and Sumi Jo,

onto 2nd duet, this was in my head the whole yesterday. also by far my favorite version: Vesselina Kasarova and Edita Gruberova

some other versions:
Daniella Barcelona and Mariella Devia:

, Ewa Podles & Agnieszka Wolska, Ewa Podles and Sumi Jo, Jennifer Larmore and Hei-Kyung Hong, Vesselina Kasarova and Eva Mei (my guess is it’s again blocked in various part of the world),

    I’m still discovering Tancredi …. slowly does it.
    That’s an amazing photo. Is that still ice? if so, do you expect a thaw any time soon?

      yes Eyes, it’s ice, covering the whole river for the last month+ . it’s been quite warm these days, up to 15C yesterday. i’ve seen ice cracks everywhere, so (sadly) i think within the next few days we’ll see widespread cracks. quite a nice view though, combined with tancredi, and i had a great friday 🙂
