I love him. 


For those of you who are curious about who Papageno is, here’s a little insight. :)


And now it’s Verdi’s turn! Here comes Macbeth in a ROH production by Phyllida Lloyd. Here we have Simon Keenlyside once again in the title role (if you’re an habitué of this blog, this really shouldn’t surpise you) along with a deviuos Liudmyla Monastyrska as his Lady Macbeth. 

(This scene, along with Mal per me are my absolutely favourite bits of this production!)

“Still it cried, ‘Sleep no more!’ to all the house.'Glamis hath murdered sleep, and therefore CawdorShall sleep no more. Macbeth shall sleep no more!’” ~ Macbeth (II, ii)   - Also, thanks to glintglimmergleam! -
