Hey guys. I was wondering, does anyone know the name of the opera that the Sox play at the Cell before making the players introductions? I'm talking about right at the beginning of the game, after the national anthem. Thanks.

Isn't it the theme song from the movie The Natural?

I think the OP is referring to Orff, Carmina Burana. We need a FAQ for this; it's about the fourth time this has been asked.

You're right.... flight of the valkyries was from Mike Tyson's Punch out.

I know Orff, Carmin Burana from one of my favorite movies, "Excalibur." It's a very energizing song and can really get you pumped. I'm not sure whether that's what is played at the game since I am usually otherwise occupied in the bullpen bar or the stadium club at that point of the game. However, if it is Orff check out the lyrics. Fitting? (the lyrics are originally in Latin I believe, the following is a translation).

O Fortune,
like the moon
you are changeable,
ever waxing
and waning;
hateful life
first oppresses
and then soothes
as fancy takes it;
poverty
and power
it melts them like ice.

Fate - monstrous
and empty,
you whirling wheel,
you are malevolent,
well-being is vain
and always fades to nothing,
shadowed
and veiled
you plague me too;
now through the game
I bring my bare back
to your villainy.

Fate is against me
in health
and virtue,
driven on
and weighted down,
always enslaved.
So at this hour
without delay
pluck the vibrating strings;
since Fate
strikes down the string man,
everyone weep with me!
