Natalie Dessay, Juan Diego Flórez, Concert Lyrique (Bellini, Donizetti), Chorégies d'Orange, 17/07/2010

Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France / Giovanni Antonini

Quelques 8 500 personnes dans le public du Théâtre Antique avec (encore !) un invité surprise : le Mistral, soufflant de fort à très fort, qui a soufflé la quasi-totalité des partitions des musiciens pendant l'ouverture de Don Pasquale ! L'orchestre a cependant continué à jouer comme si de rien n'était...
An audience with some 8 500 people in the Théâtre Antique and (again !) an unexpected guest : the northern wind blowing, from strong to very strong, that blew away most of the musicians' scores during the Don Pasquale ouverture ! However the orchestra kept on playing as if nothing had happened...

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.

Innocente, e a noi più cara ecc.

English Libretto or Translation:

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.

Innocent, and to us more dear etc.
