Madness



There is a system in this madness...

There are famous MADNESS scenes in opera's...Madness and opera go together like, well, madness in opera. And quite often the mad are women who have lost their senses, frequently over love. It's almost a cliché.
Woman in dispear,grieving,surching for revenge,killing out of love,giving you the chills and haunt you for ever...Opera composers have long been drawn to stories in which women go mad!
I selected a few....enjoy...and stay sane

Lucia di lammermoor.
Hamlet"Ophelia"
La traviata..addio del passato
Lucretia Borgia
Tosca...and please watch this one until the very end...phew!.....Happy weekend
