The Twelve White Shirts of Christmas (4)

[From 2010 to 2016: Stay with me. – Vesselina Kasarova (Ruggiero) and Anja Harteros (Alcina) in Handel’s “Alcina”, Vienna/Staatsoper 2010]

On the fourth Day of Christmas, the White Shirts sent to me:

One Baroque Slowdance

.

 

(and yes, you have barely escaped The Chaise. You have also barely escaped a screencap with these two, Morgana and three chairs, reading ‘one budding threesome’. But since we’re already on day four and there was no Bradamante in that scene…)

one Elektric Candle:
