Casta Diva

Casta Diva from Norma by Bellini
Piano Giuseppe Iacono - Soprano Antonella Iacono
Ischia 2011

Movie reposted

Casta Diva, che inargenti
queste sacre antiche piante,
a noi volgi il bel sembiante
senza nube e senza vel...

Tempra, o Diva,
tempra tu de’ cori ardenti
tempra ancora lo zelo audace,
spargi in terra quella pace
che regnar tu fai nel ciel...

O pure Goddess, who silver
These sacred ancient plants,
Turn thy beautiful semblance on us
Unclouded and unveiled...

Temper, o Goddess,
The brave zeal
Of the ardent spirits,
Scatter on the earth the peace
Thou make reign in the sky...

I hope forioscribe will enjoy the video, as promised... :)
For all my Lj and Facebook's friends: I'm going to post a lot of videos like this one, product of last months' performances. Hoping you'll enjoy the gifts, too!
