Diva Dance from “The Fifth Element”

This is my favorite scene from the 1997′s hit “The Fifth Element.” I love the symbolism that this particular aria and its remix create for the movie. For the non-opera buffs, this song is taken from a scene that is probably even more famous than the opera itself. The “Mad Scene” from “Lucia di Lammermoor” by Gaetano Donizetti is famous for both its climactic placement in the opera, as well as the technical difficulty and virtuousity of the aria itself. If you are familiar with the movie, then research the opera scene. Conversely, if you are familiar with the scene, then you should definitely watch the movie.
