If Game of Thrones was an opera, this would be Catelyn’s aria… (yes I know another depressing Catelyn one, shoot me)
And if you want to weep along to the music:
Lascia ch’io pianga
mia cruda sorte,
e che sospiri la libertà.
Il duolo infranga queste ritorte
de’ miei martiri sol per pietà.
Let me weep
my cruel fate,
and I sigh for liberty.
May sorrow break these chains
Of my sufferings, for pity’s sake
Lascia Ch’io Pianga (Rinaldo), Composed by Handel, Performed by Greta Bradman
From one of Handel’s most popular operas. Also heard in the opening scene of Antichrist (Lars von Trier, 2009).
oh gosh this reminds me of my mother, she used to practise this all the time when I was a kid (actually the repetitive practising was bloody annoying tbh.. but it’s very pretty)
