Dolce Suono realises that she neglected to post a Weekly Video last week and so there will be one today and one tomorrow. There will also be a third (!) on Tuesday because next Sunday DS is away (in Köln. Has anyone else been there?).
So, for today she has chosen Diana Damrau (in honour of the recent good news) singing ‘Les oiseaux dans la charmille’ from Offenbach’s Les Contes d’Hoffmann. Although this aria never sounds quite the same after you have heard La Stupenda sing it, this is a gorgeous version by Damrau and in the setting of a very interesting (for interesting, read weird) production. And some nice doll acting adds to the humour of this aria.
