Something I like

Did it happen to you to get stuck in a song, to wake up thinking of it then to hum it all day long? Once in a while I discover an aria, something I haven’t listen to in a long while, and I can’t let it go for three-four days.

Here it is. The aria of the week :)

N’est-ce plus ma main, from Manon by Massenet (Angela Gheorghiu/Roberto Alagna). It's in the third act, the Saint Sulpice sceen. Furiously, Des Grieux attempts to reject Manon, but when she recalls their past intimacies, his resistance is overcome, and their voices join in an impassioned avowal of love.

Have a great weekend!
