Are you crazy?

What are you doing?

- It still needs much more work.

- Devil!

You traitor!

Don't be crazy, brother!

Orpheus is a beautiful creation!

You're crazy, brother!


Listen to them, Carlo!

You hear? It's a triumph!

We're the greatest, Carlo.

If Father could see this!

If he could see all this!

Last night I dreamt about him.

He was in this theater.

He was here, Carlo!

He was right here!

He cried tears of happiness!

Tears of happiness.

He was so proud of us.

You were marvelous!

Please, leave me alone.

I'm not feeling receptive.

One should seize the moment!

Do you realize

how arousing you are?

It is hoped

that you'll accept this.

And read this letter.

Tearing Countess Mauer

away from her book...

is something

only you could accomplish.

That's a very valuable gift,

Signor Farinelli.

I'll leave.




Ah castrato!

It's the pact, madame.

I've always believed,

Signor Farinelli...

that books

could supply our minds...

with all

the necessary sustenance.

As to the feelings

the arts inspired in me...

they always appealed

to my highest faculties...

to my intelligence.

Those feelings, Signor Farinelli,

I can control.

But what I felt yesterday evening

when I heard you sing...

is beyond my understanding.

What you aroused in me...

is very similar

to a feeling of love.

I believe...


you were responsible...

for my first musical orgasm.

At this point,

Signor Farinelli...

do you really need

your brother?

Do you need him

in order to get an erection?

Can you come, in spite

of what they took from you?

They left me enough to satisfy

all the world's women.

What is it like?


And safe.

Never safe.

Carlo supplies the climax.

Riccardo plants the seed.


the Broschi brothers
