OperaPulse’s Aria of the Week – Hamlet, by Ambroise Thomas, is performed very infrequently but 2010 opera audiences were spoiled. Back to back productions took place at the Met and then at Washington National Opera. We believe this brilliant opera should be a mainstay in companies around the globe!
In this edition, we choose to feature an aria off the beaten track (well known to baritones), the Brindisi (drinking song) from Thomas’ Hamlet, Ô vin, dissipe la tristesse – “O wine, dispel the sorrow.” Who pulls off the tormented Hamlet the best?
