Colbert has a good singing voice and often sings along with his musical guests but singing an opera duet with one of the great tenors Placido Domingo must be his most ambitious effort yet. Here they perform La Donna E Mobile from Giuseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto. This clip appeared on February 23, 2012. (To get suggestions on how to view clips of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report outside the US, please see this earlier post.)
It seemed to me that he did a pretty fair job but my own knowledge of opera is highly limited so I am not the best judge.
My favorite aria is The Telephone of Brazil from the long-running opera Sesame Street, here sung by Placido Flamingo.
What can I say? I love the Muppets.
