Mozart, but HOT!!!!!

I have to do this duet from Don Giovanni as a link here because they have disabled the embedding, but I am so impressed. Terfel and Bartoli in the middle of an orchestra but for six minutes they are the aristocratic seducer and peasant girl who sort of knows what she is doing, even in spite of musicians around them and concert performance outfits instead of costumes. It strikes me as quite extraordinarily sexual, even given that I was watching Bonnie Raitt and John Lee Hooker sing 'In the Mood' a few minutes earlier...
