diva-dresses:

Role: Semele
Singer: Cecilia Bartoli
Opera: Semele (G. F. Händel) 

Semele, lover of the god Jupiter, with the magic mirror given to her by the jealous Juno – making her fall in love with her own image.

“Myself I shall adore,
If I persist in gazing.
No object sure before
Was ever half so pleasing!”

I adore Bartoli.
