We all know the famous scene from James Bond’s “Die Another Day” where he is slowly lowered into a shark tank. And we all know how it ends: with James Bond getting eaten alive by a bunch of sharks.

But what if that scene was set to opera music? Would it be any less intense?

Find out in this blog post, where we take a look at James Bond’s death scene set to opera music.


In the movie “Spectre,” James Bond (played by Daniel Craig) meets his demise in a spectacular fashion, falling from a helicopter onto a snow-covered mountain. The scene is set to the beautiful music of Giuseppe Verdi’s “Requiem.”

The “Requiem” is a Mass for the dead, and its use in this context is quite appropriate. The music is very moving and emotional, and it really helps to set the mood for Bond’s final moments.

It’s interesting to note that this isn’t the first time that Verdi’s music has been used in a James Bond movie. In “For Your Eyes Only,” Bond is seen attending a performance of Verdi’s “Otello.”

So if you’re a fan of James Bond, or if you just appreciate good opera music, be sure to check out this incredible scene from “Spectre.”

The scene

The final scenes of “Casino Royale” are set to the music of Mozart’s “Requiem in D Minor.” As Vesper Lynd’s body sinks into the Mediterranean Sea, Bond’s mind is filled with images of her. The montage is accompanied by the haunting strains of Lacrimosa, which translates to “tearful.”

The music

The music that accompanies James Bond’s death scene in “Spectre” is called “Nessun Dorma” and is from the opera “Turandot” by Giacomo Puccini.

The aria is sung by Calaf, the prince of Tartary, who has fallen in love with the cold Princess Turandot and vows to solve three riddles in order to win her hand. If he fails, he will be executed.

In the aria, Calaf expresses his confidence that he will succeed and that Turandot will eventually be his. The famous refrain “nessun dorma” (“none shall sleep”) is a declaration that no one will sleep until he knows the princess’s name.

The music is both triumphant and tragic, and it perfectly captures the mixture of emotions that James Bond feels in his final moments.


To conclude, I think that the video was very creative and well done. The idea of setting James Bond’s death scene to opera music was very original and I thought it added a lot to the video. The editing was also well done and I think that it added to the overall effect of the video.
