    Very beautiful but I like the version by East Village Opera better.

    Lakme`s `Flower Duet` is beautiful, one of my favorites, another being what @saawduust is referring to, which is Mozart`s `Le Nozze` di Figaro`. @Squrlz, he was making a "Shawshank Redemption" reference.

    Opera duet from The Shawshank Redemption, for the curious.

    Oi- Gerry- tHAt was the late great Joan Sutherland. Not the prettiest Coloratura, but to my mind one of the very finest voices ever....

    Madduck, don`t get irritated by G1. Culture is wasted on the uncultured. (Pearls before swine etc)

    Joan Sutherland was great but my favorite soprano to sing along with was Kiri Te Kanawa. In high school, I used to sing along with her to learn how to sing the popular soprano solos. My voice teacher couldn`t believe the before and after when I started this technique to learn how to sing. Thanks, Kiri!

    God I hate opera... but that piece may be an exception. Anyway, why does opera and modern art get to be "culture" when Metallica and Norman Rockwell were just as talented, if not more so?

    @ David, I`m with ya. You have to wade through 2 1/2 hours of boring stuff but somewhere in there is 3 minutes of really nice stuff. Madame Butterfly is the same way.

    I used to volunteer for the Minnesota Opera.. One nice thing they do is project subtitles so you can understand what people are singing. Increases the enjoyment of an opera exponentially.
