Cristina Deutekom: Bellini - La Sonnambula, 'Ah! non credea mirarti... Ah! non giunge uman pensiero'

Singer: Cristina Deutekom

Cristina Deutekom (born Christine Engel, August 28, 1931) is a Dutch opera singer. Renowned for her coloratura technique, she is also known as Christine Deutekom and Christina Deutekom. Her voice was that of a dramatic coloratura, although lirico spinto with an incredible coloratura technique would probably be more accurate. She sang with virtually all the leading tenors of her time: Franco Corelli, Richard Tucker, Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo, José Carreras, Alfredo Kraus, Carlo Bergonzi and Nicolai Gedda. Deutekom was born in Amsterdam. After some smaller roles, her breakthrough came in 1963, portraying the Queen of the Night in Mozart's Die Zauberflöte at De Nederlandse Opera. She then sang the same role at all major European opera houses and also at the Metropolitan Opera in New York in 1968. In 1974 she opened the MET season next to Plácido Domingo as Elena in I vespri siciliani. Meanwhile she had been extending her repertoire. Besides the Queen of the Night, her Mozart roles included Donna Anna (Don Giovanni), Fiordiligi (Così fan tutte) and Vitellia (La clemenza di Tito). She also scored triumphant successes in Italy in the great bel canto roles of Rossini (Armida), Bellini (Norma, I puritani) and Donizetti (Lucia di Lammermoor). She went on to achieve international fame in a repertoire that also embraced the great dramatic Verdi roles (Abigaile in Nabucco, Lady Macbeth, Leonora in Il trovatore, Amelia in Un ballo in maschera, Elena in I vespri siciliani and the roles that were captured in commercial recordings: Giselda in I Lombardi and Odabella in Attila). Finally, she went on to sing the title role in Puccini's Turandot. Cristina's stage career ended in 1986, when she suffered a heart attack. She turned to giving master classes internationally. As of 2001, she was a guest teacher at the Royal Conservatory of the Hague...

Lyrics & English Translation

Oh, I didn't believe to see you
so quickly extinct, o flowers;
you have passed away like love
that one day only lasted.
Perhaps new life
my tears will bring to you
but to revive love
my tears, o no, cannot.
O, inconceivable human thought
a wave of contentment I am full:
In my feelings I can hardly believe
you assure me, o my treasure(darling).
O, embrace me, and always together,
always united in a single hope,
of the world, we live in
we will make a heaven of love.

O, inconceivable human thought
a wave of contentment I am full:
In my feelings I can hardly believe
you assure me, o my treasure(darling).
O, embrace me, and always together,
always united in a single hope,
of the world, we live in
we will make a heaven of love.


Please Enjoy!

I send my kind and warm regards,

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

AMINA
Ah! non giunge uman pensiero
Al contento ond'io son piena:
A' miei sensi io credo appena;
Tu m'affida, o mio tesor.
Ah mi abbraccia, e sempre insieme
Sempre uniti in una speme,
Della terra in cui viviamo
Ci formiamo un ciel d'amor.

TUTTI
Innocente, e a noi più cara ecc.

English Libretto or Translation:

AMINA
Ah! human thought does not come
To the satisfaction I am full:
I just believe in my senses;
You trust me, my treasure.
Ah hugs me, and always together
Always united in a hope,
Of the earth in which we live
We form a heaven of love.

ALL
Innocent, and to us more dear etc.
