Oh, and here is a little bit of Opera for you to enjoy. A youtube video by Cristian Faur taken from the film "FARINELLI " The story of celebrated Italian Castrato singer of the 18th century and one of the greatest singers in the history of opera, Carlo Maria Michelangelo Nicola Broschi.
If you would like to see the film (English subtitles), I have seen quite a few on youtube. I'll have to watch it later on my own ; no one here, I'm afraid likes Opera, too bad ( ;
I listened to this piece this morning while painting "Moon Lake" : ) Really does keep me focused and at ease, especially when the lake was giving me some issues. Enjoy!
