A week or so ago, I found out about this singer, Simone Kermes (thanks OT!) and am now completely in love with her because she is essentially a combination of crazy hair, crazy clothes, crazy facial expressions and Baroque music.
I am aware that this is not technically opera but this is my blog and I can post what I want and besides it’s amazing and you will love it.
This video is the soprano Anna Prohaska singing ‘Alma Oppressa’ by Vivaldi. The video is a bit odd but I personally like it (although the woman doing the train announcement in German in the background isn’t great). I think the idea of her being lost and confused and not really knowing what to do fits well with the music. And not forgetting the music itself, I love this song and her voice is wonderful.
