soprano gargles wine instead of singing

Soprano Lindsay Sutherland Beales has a novel interpretation when it comes to the famous laughing aria from Strauss’s Die Fledermaus.

Unsurprisingly, it’s the brainchild of conductor Rainer Hersch, who has a history with this sort of thing. As a result, you'll notice some rather choice interpretations in the subtitles.

But then it’s all down to Sutherland Beales’ performance of ‘Mein Herr Marquis’ - once it gets to the second verse and the champers comes out, all bets are off.
