Don’t look now: It’s the naked Nessun Dorma

A Ukrainian soprano, Arina Domski, entirely out of costume, sings the tenor aria to orchestral accompaniment, studded with gentle electronic noises.

Ms Domski is described as ‘the only Ukrainian singer in the style of classical crossover’.

  • I don’t like neither her wardrobe, nor accompaniment, neither the way she sings (if one can call it singing). I can understand that she wants to attract the audience, but one could do it with good taste too.
    Sorry if I am too critical. It is always easier to criticize that do it yourself. I wish her all the best.

    • Yes, I think maybe you are being a little bit too critical. Sounds to me like she actually can sing, and there are some nice well focussed sounds when she opens up the voice.Yes,it is a tad tasteless; but to hear something slightly more quirky being done with the music than the standard crass attempt to be purely (I use that word with some caution) operatic is somewhat refreshing. The only thing that disturbs me greatly is that there is almost reason at all for yet another version of this now desperately hackneyed and (nowadays, as one hears it everywhere and anywhere) boring aria. It would be nice if it could disappear for a few years!!

      Btw: Happy 80th (or maybe a touch more) Birthday Pavarotti ūüôā
