Luciano Pavarotti - Puccini: La Bohème / Act 1 - "O soave fanciulla" (Puccini: La Bohème)
It’s an opera kind of night. Nerdy Buffy Moment: (is it really spoilers if it’s this old?) The first time I saw the episode Passion, I started geeking out as Giles comes home to hear this song playing. I started to explain to my friend that the song is two lovers, having just met, expressing their everlasting love and tenderness for one another. It’s a pure expression of the thrill of new love and the intensity of an instant empathy and caring for another human being. The song ends in them walking off state, arm in arm, singing into the cold night. I grew up with this song. This only added to my heartbreak when Giles discovers Jenny’s body. While I am sure this is a detail that went over most viewer’s heads, I always liked to think that the writer/director/whoever chose this music intentionally placed it there to add to the cruelty of the whole thing. It definitely made the scene more intense for me.
