    The soaring and gliding of angels. Da Ponte wrote of a gentle breeze, and Mozart scored it perfectly. There's never a moment where this piece doesn't carry me away from all the troubles of the world. It gives me that small glimpse of heaven. Through music do I truly know the voice of God.

    I was really taken by the "closet duet" in Exterminating Angel with the two hidden lovers.

    Thanks! I was excited to see Exterminating Angel and wasn't at all disappointed, and that dreamy night lull really knocked me over. When they came out in that little rotating box I think I stopped breathing, it was so beautiful.

    Love the Mozart duet. Hate the movie. Cannot think why anyone would rate it

    I agree with Mefistofele is really beautiful here is an clip I have watched several times with Saekyung Rim as Margerita and Sungkyu Park as Faust:



    But for Madama Butterfly I prefer the love duet. Here is a clip with Saekyung Rim as Cio-Cio San and Rame Lahaj as Pinkerton:



    But I guess Saekyung Rim is too mature and classy for Cio-Cio San.
