I learned German at school , but it was a second foreign language (first was English), so teachers took it “in free mode”, so we did not learn a lot. I think I forgot almost everything, I am not in contact with this language for several years, so now my abilities in German language are really not good, but I try to write some words about video.
The moderator spoke about that was special connection for 3 Italian Tenors to be on stage with Placido Domingo and we can see how will be their figures on ice, if they will be so good as they are on stage. In video they said what means Il Volo – The Flight and said that they came from Garmisch and then will go to Rome. The name suits them and always have a lot of luggage. They travel many months during year, and visit countries with different climates, with warm weather, then cold. They still have with them different kinds of clothes from sweaters over swimsuit, that is very funny. The moderator said that they need also tuxedo to have with them, because they cannot sing Granada in jeans. Their life is stressful so need entertainment and sense of humor, so they often laugh. The boys learned some funny words in German, such as I love potatoes. Germans, and especially women love them, in summer they had concert in Florence where Placido Domingo was conducting orchestra. It was a tribute to three tenors who were big role models for Il Volo. To stand on stage with Placido Domingo, sing these old beautiful songs and arias was great for them and they’ll never forget on it in their whole life. One Christmas market saleswoman wanted to hear them sing Grande Amore for her. In video was mentioned that last year they ended on third place on Eurovision. Moderator said that they can sing both opera and also pop, but he asked if they can also skating on ice ? Two of the three have tried (Piero and Ignazio) it, they didn’t miss the fun. Ignazio said that he is for the third time on ice, but I am bad, I do not know it. Piero after five minutes, was like a pro, he said it was for first time for me but I am good. They then returned to the Christmas market and had chocolate bananas. They spoke that they will be on Christmas at home only on one day, they love to be with their families and stay with people they love. At the end moderator said, young fly to Rome and leave us with potatoes and cold alone.
So I hope, I helped you to understand little bit this video. 🙂 Auf Wiedersehen ! – Goodbye !
