Romantic show through Paintings and Opera Arias 2
Romantic show 2 means going further on the ideal path through acrylic paintings by Aurora Mazzoldi and opera arias, which has begun with “Romantic Show 1”. If you like this idea, look at my acrylic paintings as they were a stage and read the great opera arias. With a little imagination, your guides in this part of your romantic journey will be such great opera composers as Bellini, Puccini, Mozart and Bizet.
Yes ? but oh, look upon me
Without this priestly austerity which shines
In your eyes. Give me courage, that I
May reveal my heart wholly to you.
(Norma, V. Bellini)
And you, mysterious beauty…
Crowned with blond locks
(Tosca, G. Puccini)
A more amusing picture
found in all the world;
That which makes me laugh the most
Is their rage and
(Thus Do They All, W. A. Mozart)
to Sister Angelica
Sister Angelica, What about you?
Have you any wishes?
turning towards the sisters
I? No, sister. No.
She turns to water the flowers
grouping themselves on the opposite side of Sister Angelica and whispering
May Jesus forgive her,
she's told a lie,
she’s told a lie!
(Suor Angelica, G. Puccini)
Shine on him, wherever he is
You are trampling on a poor heart
that bleeds in vain for you!
(Turandot, G. Puccini)
A woman then has beguiled you?
(The Magic Flute, W. A. Mozart)
Love is the child of the Bohemian,
It has never, never known any law,
If you don't love me, I love you,
If I love you, keep guard on yourself!
If you don't love me, if you don't love me, I love you!
But, if I love you, if I love you, keep guard on yourself!
(Carmen, G. Bizet)
