Watch: Tenor is asked to sing as he undergoes brain surgerymain
The Dutch-based Slovenian opera singer Ambrož Bajec-Lapajne underwent surgery for a brain tumor at the University Medical Center in Utrecht.
Surgeons asked him to sing while they operated in order to test brain function. They even provided a decent piano accompanist in the operating theatre.
Ambrož is now doing well and has resumed his career.
His courage is phenomenal. The video is breath-catching, a huge testament to human endeavour in science and art.
You must watch this.
‘Gute Nacht’ from Schubert’s Winterreise will never sound the same again.
