Verdi With Tea and Pastry: René Pape Does Ella giammai m´amo

It’s a beautiful afternoon outside, I am drinking tea and eating a donut in the middle of the day – that’s a living! While busying myself with some browsing of the internets, I came across this great rendition of Verdi’s Ella giammai m´amo – King Filip’s aria from Don Carlo – one of the most amazing pieces of music written for bass I think.

This version is done by a German bass Rene Pape at the opening of Oslo Opera – enjoy!
