Mady Mesplé Ophélie's mad scene Hamlet

Mady Mesplé sings Ophélie's mad scene from Ambroise Thomas Hamlet.  There is also a clip circulating of Marlis Petersen singing it at the Met.  Completely different, and takes getting used to because it's lower, less decorative and more resonant, but in many ways more drama.  Petersen's growing on me with repeat listenings. Amazing that she's just learned the part!  Please see my comments on Hamlet at the Met here with FULL performance download.  Wonderful Keenlyside Hamlet.on it
