un bel di

i think one of the reasons i like opera so much is because it so perfectly matches the majesty of nature’s beauty. looking out over a dazzling ocean sunset while listening to the clear, bright, soaring strains of ‘o mio babbino caro’ or taking in the view from a mountaintop to the booming reverberation of ‘nessun dorma’ – nothing else even comes close.

i’ll never forget the summer nights at central park, lying in the grass, watching the sky give way from sunset to stars while listening to the metropolitan opera perform ‘carmen’, the arias flying to the treetops, and thinking just how unbelievably perfect it was.
