Verdi macht spaß

Our show in 2016 was called Oper macht Spaß - but this clip is specifically about Verdi. Giuseppe Verdi was one of the great emotional composers for opera, and one of The Cast's favorites for sure. But no matter what the characters are feeling (or suffering), there is something about Verdi's vocal lines that makes them a joy to sing. In this quartet from Verdi's Rigoletto (we sing it as a sextet), we leave the meaning of the words and the characters behind, and just enjoy making the music together.

Filmed at Bar Jeder Vernunft in Berlin, July 2016.
