You’ll recognize the tune. It’s from Carmen by Bizet, but even if you’re not a classical music lover it’s a melody that’s played everywhere. But not like this. The street artist is Petr Spatina and he’s a YouTube sensation.
He was born in the Czech Republic. Over the years he developed his own technique of playing this instrument, the Glass Harp. It consists of 33 wine glasses, filled and tuned with water.
This is a great thing to try with kids. Remember the scene in Miss Congeniality when Sandra Bullock plays a glass harp as her talent? Hilarious.
