When a surgeon is rooting around in your skull, you want to make sure that he doesn’t poke the wrong things, remove the wrong bits or suck out the wrong fluids. That’s why some brain surgeries require the patient to remain awake. That way if something does go awry, everyone knows immediately.
In this case, Slovenian opera singer Ambroz Bajec-Lapajne was asked to sing the opening and closing couplets of “Gute Nacht” by Schubert. The operation took place at University Medical Centre in Utrecht. Brain surgery can be a weird thing.
