In tribute to Film Music Fridays, Ep. 40, we decided to resurface one of our favorite two cues from the hit 90's sci-fi film, 'The Fifth Element', and re-edit it in 4K. Composed by Éric Serra, this scene features a performance by the great Diva Plavalaguna. Serra mixed 'The Diva Dance' with Gaetano Donizetti's original aria 'Il dolce suono' from Act III scene 2 from 'Lucia di Lammermoor'. It is a beautiful, melodic (and fun) mix between the original operatic structure leading to an awesome pop twist.
