Thank you Youtube and all you copyright holders

Thank you, YouTube, he said saracastically. They have removed the perfect little scene from Don Giovanni that I used with my class last term due to “terms of use violation.”

This just drives me nuts.

In order to protect their little DVD they pulled a three minute excerpt that would help me show my students how sexy and interesting the aria “La Ci Darem La Mano” can be. Consequently, this group of fifty
students will be one hair less
likely to support opera in the
future. Don Juan is sung by
Rodney Gilfry (shown on the right).

His web site has a zillion photos of himself.
And buying the DVD and showing them the excerpt is a pain because I would have to queue it up just so…. and of course buy it out of my deep adjunct pockets (more sarcasm).
