Du feines Täubchen (Die Zauberflöte)
Magic Magic Flute by the madly talented, unjustly forgotten conductor. Yay for Fricsay!
IV. Finale: Presto-Allegro assai
Beethoven Ninth Symphony (Mahler's 1895 Re-Orchestration) [Tiboris, BRNO P.O.]
Mahler's re-orchestration of OC's favorite leaves her baffled: genius or lame-0? OC will probably just keep listening to it until she makes up her mind, in about, say, 50 years. It's nice though.
ten crack commandments
Because opera is gangsta. And the other way around may be true, too, by0tches.
This Norma will kill your children, beat your ass up, raid your fridge and vandalize your apartment. Listen with care.
Symphony C-Dur - Allegro assai
Heinz Rögner; Berlin; Richard Wagner
Because Opera Chic's iPod is in serious need of de-nazification.
Leo Nucci alla Scala Recital
Best. Italian Opera Baritone. Ev4r (No, that's Capuccilli, maestro Nucci comes in 2nd place; not bad & at least is still with us, singing his talented b00ty off)
I Always Wanted To Be A Tenenbaum
Because nerdy, neurotic, huggable and scr3w3d-up Royal Tenenbaums makes Opera Chic laugh with the nervous laughter of recognition.
2. Le nozze di Figaro: Act 3: Amanti costanti, seguaci d'onor
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Zubin Mehta, Teresa Berganza, Sena Jurinac
Nancy Kovack's hubs is really cool and Mozart's Opera Chic's fav.
Concerto No.3 in D: Largo Andante
Avison mash-up of Domenico Scarlatti goodness:
"I don't need no Dom Perignon I don't need Cris"???!!? WTF? Fiddy's insane, Opera Chic has a strong anti-drug stance but she needs her bubbly. This is a cool mash-up: 50 Cent + Queen = operatic Vanilla Ice but in an ironic way. Mashup by The Silence Xperiment, a totally 0utlaw outfit.
Dry Drunk Emperor
TV On The Radio
Opera Chic doesn't like this band; she actually thinks it's sucky. This song's pretty lam3, too. The libretto, on the other hand, it's pretty good.
