Music for the day. Yesterday me & my mother went to see an opera at the movie theatre. They've been showing 'The Met: Live in HD' operas for two(?) years now, but this was the first time I actually went to see one. (I've seen only one "real" opera at Tampere Hall years ago. And the one time I went to the National Opera in Helsinki, it was to see a ballet, not an opera. But I do like watching operas on tv.) Yesterday's opera was Hamlet by Ambroise Thomas. Beautiful music, wonderful voices and fine acting, if you ask me. (Not that I know anything about opera...)

Hamlet - Simon Keenlyside
Ophelia - Marlis Petersen
Gertrude - Jennifer Larmore
Laertes - Toby Spence
Claudius - James Morris

Here you can see Natalie Dessay (Ophelia) and Simon Keenlyside (Hamlet) in 2003/2004. Natalie Dessay was supposed to sing also in the Met's production, but she had to withdraw due to illness and Marlis Petersen replaced her.

Kiusaanpa teitä taas YouTuben musiikkivideolla, kun en ole mitään saanut luettua.
Tässä CCR:ää Children of Bodomin kohtapuoliin julkaistavalta cover-levyltä Skeletons in the Closet. (Tai on tämä kappale jo jonkin levyn/sinkun bonusraitanakin julkaistu aiemmin.)

Kas kun eivät tehneet promovideota Britney-coveristaan: :-D

Edit. Enpä sitten tajunnut heti, että ovat "coveroineet" videonkin.
Tässä CCR:n video:
