Farewell Pavarotti. RIP.

Pavarotti – Nessun Dorma

Nessun dorma! Nessun dorma! Tu pure, o Principessa,
nella tua fredda stanza
guardi le stelle
che tremano d’amore e di speranza…
Ma il mio mistero è chiuso in me,
il nome mio nessun saprà!
No, no, sulla tua bocca lo dirò,
quando la luce splenderà!
Ed il mio bacio scioglierà il silenzio
che ti fa mia.

Il nome suo nessun saprà…
E noi dovrem, ahimè, morir, morir!

Dilegua, o notte! Tramontate, stelle!
Tramontate, stelle! All’alba vincerò!
Vincerò! Vincerò!


Nobody shall sleep!… Nobody shall sleep! Even you, o Princess,
in your cold room, watch the stars,
that tremble with love and with hope.
But my secret is hidden within me,
my name no one shall know…
No!…No!… On your mouth I will tell it when the light shines.
And my kiss will dissolve the silence that makes you mine!…

No one will know his name and we must, alas, die.

Vanish, o night! Set, stars! Set, stars! At dawn, I will win! I will win! I will win!


  1. ntt: I also don’t understand Opera. But somehow, I really enjoy myself when listening to him sing. Even when I totally don’t understand a single word.
