A little piece of heaven for a Sunday
On Friday night, my lovely daughter took me to the Opera for my Christmas present -- to see and hear Les Contes D'Hoffman by Offenbach. I've always loved opera, but this duet, "Barcarolle," has to be one of my favourites. Here it is sung by Elina Garanca, a mezzo-soprano from Latvia, with Anna Netrebko, a Russian soprano, and an opera chorus with whom I would love to sing any day. It's just a tiny smidge of what heaven will sound like, I'm convinced. Enjoy!
