I finally started reading this blog, and this was an absolutely awesome almost-first thing to see posted on it…

This is far and away the best part of the opera, which otherwise is kind of meh, unfortunately.

This is definitely the best part of the opera, but after listening to the whole thing, I don’t think it’s kind of meh! It’s not his best (Klinghoffer for the win), but it’s still extremely powerful.

This video is now dead (dammit, Youtube!,) so here‘s a link to an audio-only version with accompanying stills from the original production.
