    Oops, I was thinking of Maria Stuarda when I said confrontation scene, but there are a couple confrontations in Anna Bolena, so...

    What bothers me about that video though is why they make her wear a dress that simulates a mammogram device in squashing the goods.

    Haha. I didn't realise. I have to confess I don't follow scenes with women that closely, I'm only watching it for the King.

    I should imagine it's difficult to breathe normally and almost impossible to sing wearing something like that.

    Dug this out to watch while I did the ironing. An oldie but a goodie and Ruggero's Le veau d'or gets sustained and justified applause.
