This is why I’m anosmic. Because my nose is off doing this kind of stuff.
But yes, this is from Shostakovich’s first opera, “The Nose,” which is based off of a short story by Nikolai Gogol. Basically, dude’s nose develops sentience, jumps off the dude’s face, and quickly attains a higher social rank than the dude.
I don’t know.
It’s pretty great, though.
OH MY GOD, so in the finale episode of Daredevil, the aria Nessun Dorma is featured during a particular sequence (not going to say anything more…spoilers, you know) and for the past few days I’ve been trying to find the version that was in the show ‘cause it was freaking beautiful.
But I just found a video of Pavarotti singing it instead and it’s the greatest thing ever.
