"I must be a strange creature, fit only to love and weep, for I was softened and suffered from the time I first walked. My college years were years of weeping. I had in me the pride of loving natures. I was not loved, for I was not understood and I refused to make myself known."

— Emile Zola, Claude’s Confession

ladies who should be playing mythical head bitches in charge | ASTRID BERGES-FRISBEY as ELAINE, the lily maid of astolat, who fell in love with lancelot du lac, and dying of unrequited love, floated down the thames to camelot.

The knight is young and quiet-eyed, and his hair is dark, flecked with auburn when the light falls from her windows just so. She leans forward, breath hovering in her throat, her fingers inches from the lines of his face. He is beautiful; a knight, she thinks. Oh, how she wished for a knight, how she wished to leave this tower, how she wished to be whisked away by a knight such as him. She had dreamed of a beautiful man to come and rescue her, and in her dreams he looked like this, exact. Be my knight, she wants to whisper, wants to imprint the words into his skin. The queen has her king; she has no need of you. Be my knight, she leans in close. Be mine.

"But common sense, which is inconsistent with love’s dictates, bids him refrain from getting in, warning him and counselling him to do and undertake nothing for which he may reap shame and disgrace. Reason, which dares thus speak to him, reaches only his lips, but not his heart; but love is enclosed within his heart, bidding him and urging him to mount at once upon the cart. So he jumps in, since love will have it so, feeling no concern about the shame, since he is prompted by love’s commands."

— Chrétien de Troyes, The Knight of the Cart

Soprano Ailyn Perez sings “Je suis encore tout etourdie” from Massenet’s Manon

I love her tone and she’s a pleasure to watch.  Also, the floated high notes stop my heart. :3

Venus Grotto in Ludwig II’s Linderhof Palace

"The grotto is wholly artificial and was built for the king as an illustration of the First Act of Wagner’s "Tannhäuser”. Ludwig liked to be rowed over the lake in his golden swan-boat but at the same time he wanted his own Blue Grotto of Capri. Therefore 24 dynamos had been installed and so already in the time of Ludwig II it was possible to illuminate the grotto in changing colours.”
