LIKE JUST WATCH THE LAST TWO MINUTES OF THIS 

HOW

AND HE STARTS MANHANDLING DESSAY AND I’M LIKE OH DO IT TO ME WHILST SINGING

I am writing about La donna del lago but it’s making my brain hurt so I’m listening to Juan Diego being all young and singing all high in harem pants.

Juan Diego Florez singing ‘O del mio dolce ardor’ by Gluck. I’d really forgotten how special his voice until I heard it live.

Joyce DiDonato and Juan Diego Florez singing “Contro un Cor” from Rossini’s Il Barbiere, Met Opera, 2007.  I think Joyce DiDonato does an incredible job as Rosina.  I feel like I’m beating a dead horse with this, but the chemistry!  

Ah, but this is always relevant! I’ve always loved the little charade they do when Juan Diego’s pretending to *fix Rosina’s breathing* but he’s really just feeling her up. And I love that they always do it when they sing Barber together because, as Juan Diego said, they’ve made a coppia fissa, which basically means in Italian that they’re GOING STEADY AS AN OPERA COUPLE

ISN’T THAT THE CUTEST DAMN THING YOU’VE EVER HEARD 

opera-a-week:

Juan Diego Florez sings ‘Dies bildnis ist bezaubernd schön’ from Mozart’s ‘Die Zauberflöte’, 2006.

I was going to say something about how much I like those sleeves, the daring bustier, that delightful soft shade of creme/pink… but I’m at a loss for words. Instead, I think I’ll grace this picture with a simple “omg”.

omg.
