the Tuesday Song of the Week

Al Bano Carrisi again, this time singing 'Va Pensiero' from Verdi's Nabucco.
This past Sunday hubs and I went to see Opera Philadelphia's presentation of Nabucco.  Not only did they have this song in the proper place in the opera, but they also had it again at the very end, started by Csilla Boross, who played Abigaille (and who has the MOST AWESOME VOICE).  She did the first stanza or two, and was slowly joined by the rest of the company.  Sooooo beautiful, it took a lot for me not to cry.
