Sung by Fabio Armiliato, Italian tenor

E Lucevan Le Stelle
Music by Giacomo Puccini
Libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa

E lucevan le stelle
And the stars were shining
ed olezzava la terra
and the earth smelled sweet
stridea l’uscio dell’orto
the garden gate scraped
e un passo sfiorava la rena
and a step brushed the sand
Entrava ella fragrante
She came in, fragrant
mi cadea fra la braccia
and fell into my arms
O dolci baci, o languide carezze
Oh! sweet kisses, oh! languid caresses
mentr’io fremente le belle forme disciogliea dai veli!
while I, trembling, released her lovely features from their veils!
Svanì per sempre il sogno mio d’amore
My dream of love has vanished forever
L’ora è fuggita, e muoio disperato!
The moment is gone, and I die in despair!
e muoio disperato! E non ho amato mai tanto la vita!
I die in despair! And I never have loved life so much!
tanto la vita!
life so much!
