Today La Cieca prepares to usher in the New Year in the way that has been traditional among her people for thousands of years…
… listening to a performance of Rossini’s Semiramide.
Unnatural Acts of Opera
“L’Shana Tova”. y’all..!!
Happy 5770, La Ciecowitz.
Everyday is a ‘Day of Judgement’ here in the Parterre Box…
Yes, may we/you all be inscribed in the non-digital version of the book of life despite our transgressions on Parterrebox and ici-bas.
Warm Wishes for a very sweet , happy, HEALTHY, peaceful,…and PROSPEROUS New Year, to All…
THIS is actually the vid Ithough I was posting , before….ooops!
Shana Tova to all from Tel Aviv!
Here’s the greatest Israeli singer, Chava Alberstein, in a Hebrew version of Hadjidakis'”Dedication”
Actually, the Hebrew version by Naomi Shemer is much better IMHO than the original lyrics, here goes a rather literal translation:
The crickets at summertime sing
short days of summertime pass along
and the ant says wistfully,
dear fiddler, you’ve sung already, now why don’t you dance
I don’t care, I rather like it,
intoning infront of you the wildest of songs
and stand in front of God
with two dimples
and six torn strings.
The saxophones reply: hooray hooray
the flutes this evening are so clear
the bass drums beat, the violins croon
only the miserable ant? only ever sees woe.
I don’t care…
Farewell for now, my brothers,
tomorrow a new dawn will light for you and me,
now black velvet spreads over the town
now it’s time to say adieu, and part ways in song
I don’t care….
A nice Rosh Hashana gift.
Wasn’t aware that you were also a member of the chosen people, Cieca! L’Shana Tova!
As La Cieca says in the podcast, “La Cieca is only half Jewish, and the half that’s Jewish isn’t observant.”
