Wanna hear something freaky?

I was reading on NFCS and someone was posting about arias for high soprano that were new and interesting. This naturally drew my attention and when someone mentioned a particular aria, I had to check it out. Found the composer's site. Opera about the Elephant Man. My interest was the air for the coloratura, but listen twisters, the role of the Elephant man was originally for a mezzo. Don't know if you are interested in that kind of thing, and I didn't listen to anything but the coloratura, but what the heck, always interesting to listen to something new. Anyway the coloratura's aria a freak show, and thought you all might want a listen. Yeee ha!
FYI they tell me that's a high g at the end.
