What do you make of this?

It's Olympia's song from Les Contes d'Hoffmann by Offenbach. I've heard it sung better, but never quite like this.

Olympia

Bludell, you spoilsport! All the mystique is lost!

You can see she's wearing a costume in your version.

And never mind the wrinkles. Goggle on those organ-stops. :shock:

:lol:

I tried to watch Blu's version as well, but the Internet froze. Translating some of the comments is entertaining. What is the story? It appears that Offenbach died before the premiere and didn't compose the music. If she had been nude, would the theatre audience have seen a difference.

She had fake nipples that permanently stayed erect, now that was not normal for starters! Funny though!
