Clip from the Staatsoper

TJ Grasch, who is studying in the nearby city of Linz, came up the other night for a visit. TJ, myself, my roommate, Alex, and friend Karin all went to a Staatsoper performance of Puccini's 'Manon Lescaut.' The modern staging was a bit eccentric, though it was an amazing performance overall. I snagged this short clip of the amazing soprano aria at the end of the last act...though this clip does not do justice to the overall performance.

TJ is from Illinois, like me! Alex is from Ethiopia, and Karin is from Sweden, so we were quite the international group for the evening!
