May's Musical Interlude
This is a clip from the film DIVA (1981), one of my all-time favorites. This actually gets some of the plot going...the singer is a world-famous diva (played by real-life opera star Wilhelmina Wiggins-Fernandez) who refuses to make recordings...except that one of her biggest fans, Jules (Frederic Andrei), secretly records what is probably her greatest concert, and is seen doing so by Asian record pirates. Of course, there's more going on in the film, and I'm going to blog about it later, but in the meantime, enjoy the aria.
