10 minutes of Westbroek and you're cool

Of course something just HAD TO stand on the way for me to go to Amsterdam to see  Les Troyens with  Eva-Maria Westbroek,  the event I've been waiting for since more than a year ago. Just as I thought to go, I learned this morning at work that my presence was indispensable... and that I had to stay.
Not only it's a waste of money for me [I've already paid for the train and had the ticket for Les Troyens], but I really wanted to see this opera live.

Eva-Maria Westbroek as Sieglinde in the Stéphane Braunschweig's production of Die Walkuere in Aix, 2007

There is no any recording of Eva-Maria singing Cassandre, but whatever she sings it's regularly overwhelming, dramatic and stunningly beautiful. Here I picked my three fave Westbroek roles to share.
Whichever you choose it will be 10 minutes of bonding with either Wagner, Shostakovich or R.Strauss. Enjoy

And I gotta dash back to work...
