Talking about the Marriage of Figaro

We've talked about it before but Dove Sono is the saddest most heart rending piece of music ever - brings me to tears every time.

Re: Classical Music

Not quite right.

Figaro had promised his wife he wouldn't invoke the ancient law of breaking in the bride of any of his serfs' before the wedding.

However, he really had the hots for the bride, who happened to be his wife's personal maid and planned to tup her at the first opportunity.

The wife got wind of Figaro's intention and together with the maid plotted a scenario that would leave Figaro, high, dry and very embarrassed in front of his wife.

The aria is that plan unfolding.

I think I would take more of an interest in opera if I could understand the story....

It's like that Shakespeare chappie, he talks in riddles all of the time, but makes some very interesting points...

Re: Classical Music

I think the stories in operas are mostly ridiculous and prefer to listen not in English.As long as I've got the general idea of what's going on the music is enough for me.

Re: Classical Music

I wonder if anyone like me remembers "The Esso sign means happy motoring" when they first hear this?

I haven't heard much Delius yet.Williams was more English than Elgar I think.Despite his patriotic stuff he was more in the Germanic style.Very pleasant though.
