This lovely aria from one of my favorite operas has been in my head lately, so figured it was time to share it.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WRJA-vui94&w=350&h=300]
That’s one of Cleopatra’s act one arias in Händel‘s most enduring opera, Giulio Cesare in Egitto. While I’m not usually a fan of opera in translation, I liked the vintage of this clip, and thought English soprano Valerie Masterson‘s performance (and diction!) was worth sharing. Enjoy!
