shuffling through classical things...

and one of my favorite things came up. The end of the first act of Tosca. The juxtaposition of Scarpia's scheming and the church service starting around him strikes me as a nice bit of theater. couldn't find a clip on youtube that I liked, but at least this one has subtitles. or there's the hilarious Lego Tosca.

anyhoo, got to sing that one with Tulsa Opera chorus ages ago with the added bonus that we could go sit in the audience for the second and third acts or go home. whatevs.
