A song you might all recognize…

Just a short post today. I thought I would post a video of me singing a song, an aria from Mozart’s opera The Marriage of Figaro. The song is called Voi Che Sapete and I think any devoted Janeite will recognize it (at least those who have seen the 1995 version of Pride & Prejudice).

This was filmed in February when I had been asked to sing at a small music event here close by where I live. I am occasionally asked to do something like that, but this was really the first time where I could pretty much choose all by myself what I wanted to sing. And then the song Elizabeth sings as she visits Pemberley was a pretty obvious choice! 😉

    That was lovely! I don’t think I’d ever quite made the connection that the famous Marriage of Figaro aria Voi Che Sapete and Lizzy’s song at Pemberley were one and the same. It’s too bad you couldn’t wear Regency dress for the performance! : )

  15. Aurora says:

    Aww thank you all! You really are so sweet!
    Emily – yeah that would have been fun! I’m think however that wearing a Regency dress would probably have added to my nervousness though…
