Opera singers have incredibly powerful pipes, and it’s amazing home much control they maintain when bellowing the loudest, deepest, and most beautiful notes. Michael Volle is a baritone opera singer, and in the video below, he treats us to a performance of “Song to the Evening Star” from Wagner’s opera, *Tannhäuser*. The only thing is, we don’t see Volle actually performing the piece: Instead, it’s an MRI scan of his profile while he sings, showing us just what the throat and tongue do as he transitions between each note. The effect is absolutely mesmerizing — who knew so much was going on in there?
