operaqueen:

Julie Andrews rehearsing Hello Young Lovers, from Philips’ 1992 recording of The King and I, conducted by John Mauceri of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and starring Julie Andrews, Ben Kingsley, Lea Salonga, Peabo Bryson, and Marilyn Horne.

This recording is extremely special, the entire team approach it with the level of respect usually given to classic Opera. Released in 1992, the recording was heavily promoted with an international campaign, including public appearances by Julie Andrews and Ben Kingsley in the U.S., Japan and Europe.

This rehearsal take from a
Television Special documenting the recording sessions which took place
in Culver City California in 1992.

Song Tag Meme: 10 songs I like

I was tagged by @romantical-reverie for this! Thank you!❤️

Non, je ne regrette rien by Edith Piaf- An iconic song about Piaf looking back at her tumoltous life

Face to Face from War Paint(sung by Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole)- A sweeping 11 o’clock number sung by two amazing divas

Con Te Partiro by Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman- a haunting classical crossover duet that was one of my inspirations to start singing

Vissi d’arte from Tosca (sung by Maria Callas)-My favorite opera aria of all time, which I named my blog after

Strangers in the Night by Frank Sinatra-Classic Sinatra. Need I say more?

Dio! Mi potevi scagliar! from Otello(sung by Jonas Kaufmann)-Otello is one of my favorite operas, and Kaufmann one of my favorite tenors who sang the role.

Moscow from Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812- WEEEELLLCOOOME, WELCOME TO MOSCOW WHERE FADED AND FAAADING PRINCESSES LIVE

C’est Magnifique by Patti LuPone-Patti LuPone always sounds so cool singing jazzy songs like this.

Sealwoman/Yundah by Mary McLaughlin-Selkies fascinate me and I like this song even though it makes me cry like a baby.

The Quartet from The Secret Garden-The Secret Garden is my favorite musical and this number is very stirring and underrated. Whenever a production leaves it out the audience doesn’t know what they’re missing!
