Remember I said yesterday that there will be very little classical music in this collection? I lied. Here’s another one. Now I don’t much like opera. I tried. I tried hard. When I lived in London I used to regularly buy a cheap seat to see the English National Opera at the London Coliseum. But nothing ever grabbed me. I never felt anything more than bored. I had to stop going in the end because I kept falling asleep.
So why this? It’s Mozart’s Sull’aria…che soave zeffiretto from The Marriage of Figaro, by the way. Well the other day, we sat down and watched The Shawshank Redemption – again. Which, you may remember, features this duet. Ten points if you can remember what Andy says when he’s asked to explain why he did what he did…
The answer’s after the break.
Still here? The answer is “That’s the beauty of music. They can’t get that from you…”
Haven’t you ever felt that way about music?
