    Miscellaneous YouTube videos

    Bass - Nicolas Brooymans

    Russell Thomas is an African-American tenor who's making a name for himself on the international level, as seen in this clip with Anja Harteros in Munich's Don Carlo:



    I've heard him in three roles with the Cincinnati Opera -- the Prince in The Flowering Tree, Manrico, and Florestan -- and was very impressed. He recently made his role debut as Otello in concert performances with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and is seen in a clip from an interview with Evans Mirageas, the Atlanta Symphony's Vice-President of Artistic Planning (and who happens to be the CO's Artistic Director). It's just frustrating that we don't get to hear the complete interview.

    This is totally awesome. 10,000 voice choir! Beethoven's Ninth beginning at the vocal entry.
    I can forgive the microphone, given the size of that stadium.

    Thanks MAuer!

    I saw his Foresto (Attila) in Seattle and he was excellent.

    Sarastro's O Isis und Osiris from Die Zauberflöte.

    Score.

    O Isis und Osiris schenket
    Der Weisheit Geist dem neuen Paar!
    Die ihr der Wandrer Schritte lenket,
    Stärkt mit Geduld sie in Gefahr –

    Laßt sie der Prüfung Früchts sehen.
    Doch sollten sie zu Grabe gehen,
    So lohnt der Tugend kühnen Lauf,
    Nehmt sie in euern Wohnsitz auf.

    -----------------

    O Isis and Osiris, bestow
    the spirit of wisdom on this young couple!
    You who guide the wanderers' steps,
    strengthen them with patience in danger.

    Let them see the fruits of trial;
    yet if they should go to their deaths,
    then reward the bold course of virtue:
    receive them into your abode.

    -----------------

    Known as Mozart’s Cradle Song (presumably Wolfgang composed it), “Schlafe, mein Prinzchen, schlaf ein” (Sleep, my little prince, go to sleep) doesn’t have lyrics of a specifically religious nature, but is sometimes performed as a Christmas carol in the German-speaking countries. Here are the famed Regensburger Domspatzen (Regensburg Cathedral Boys’ Choir):

    If you've ever wondered what Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer sounds like sung to the tune of Una Furtiva Lagrima, then countertenor Benjamin Williamson will demonstrate.

    Michael Volpe, General Director of Opera Holland Park took eight inner city teenagers to see opera. Joyous and I couldn't stop grinning.

    Excuse me if I posted this elsewhere on the site, but this Senta is phenominal in voice and acting.
    Unique tonal quality to the voice. Oh if only it were on DVD for the whole opera.

    This is terrific! These are such thoughtful, engaging young people. (And I really liked the Scarpia!)

    Nothing like the real thing. How could anyone not be moved by a live opera experience. Found a BBC article on it:

    Hip Hop to Opera: Expanding horizons through music

    Quite! I took my wife to an opera (concert version) and it did not move her (in fact, she left after the second of three acta). More hope for pop-music-addicted kids I guess.
