So gebe ich mich dir auf Zeit und Ewigkeit.

On another note, who wouldn’t want to be kissed by him?

Salome, Richard Strauss - Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, 1997 (conducted by Christoph von Dohnányi)

Salome - Catherine Malfitano
Jochanaan - Bryn Terfel
Herodes - Kenneth Riegel
Herodias - Anja Silja

Ah yes, I remember watching this in my earlier (more polite) blogging days and having a tiny meltdown over a certain make-out scene with Jokanaan’s severed head.

THIS OPERA. SO MUCH LOVE. 

When I listen to the climax of a symphony.

Awkward Opera Texts

FOLLOW US SIL VOU PLAIT. This Dandy and a great friend just started something. 

squonkhunter:

My character Sridar if he’d grown up in the 21st century. He’d go by his real last name, Kulkarni, and most likely grew up in London listening to Daft Punk, Mozart, The Beastie Boys, and has developed a taste for dubstep. He created a dubstep/rap band in which he plays the synthesizer, mixes the sounds, and does the main vocals. In the 21st century he can be open about his bisexuality, though a lot of people tend to think he’s gay. Must be the hair, but he likes it too much to part with it. Pun.

Not Opera related, but Daym Maestro. DAYUM.
