elsane: Yeo Kyeung and Wan from Capital Scandal in full revolutionary garb (revolution!!)
The lyrics and translation to "Amour Sacré de la Patrie" for reference, because it's a little hard to track down on the internet. (How rapidly the famous becomes the obscure!) For those wondering what on earth this is doing here, it's a fiery seditious pledge the tenor and the baritone sing to each other in La Muette de Portici, a 19th century opera based, with huge artistic liberties, on a short-lived peasants' revolt of Naples against Spain, and why yes, this reflects on the revolutionary politics of 1830s France.
