She Walks Up To The Stage And Starts Singing. By The End, Everyone Is In Tears
I found myself wiping away a tear after this performance. What a voice the little girl has. It doesn't hurt, either, that her choice of song is flawless. "O Mio Babbino Caro" is one of the most popular arias ever written. Composed by the famous Italian composer Giacomo Puccini, the soprano aria provides a lyrically simple interlude in Puccini's only comedy, "Gianni Schicchi." This opera was originally written as part of "Il trittico," or "The Triptych" in English, a collection of three one-act operas. While Puccini wrote them as a set, to be performed together. However, it is now quite common to see the component operas performed by themselves or just two together, with "Gianni Schicchi" being the most popular.
