Nessun Dorma

Can you get tired of the aria? (Probably. That’s where the discipline of self-retraint comes in useful.) One of the anesthesia attendings showed me this youtube video of an amateur singing it. Quite good. See for yourself:

Paul Potts sings Nessun Dorma

His voice has a certain resonance, clarity, and intensity. And one of my favorite aspects of the video was watching the female judge’s expressions and reactions. Note her nearly gasping for breath at the musical climax! The sweeping camera shots at the very end of the aria are a little cheesy, but still effective.
