Beniamino Gigli & Magda Olivero - La dolcissima effigie (1940 live)

Singer(s): Beniamino Gigli Magda Olivero

From a live performance of Adriana Lecouvreur in Rome, 12 January 1940. Conducted by Nino Sanzogno.

Only a portion of Act 1 was recorded. This is the only clip I have come across but it is a nice example of Olivero's voice near the end of her 'first' career. The 49 year old Gigli is still in excellent voice.

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

La dolcissima effigie sorridente
in te rivedo della madre cara;
nel tuo cor della mia patria,
dolce, preclara, l'aura ribevo,
che m'aprě la mente...
Bella tu sei, come la mia bandiera,
delle pugne fiammante entro i vapor;
tu sei gioconda come la chimera
della Gloria, promessa al vincitor,
Bella tu sei, tu sei gioconda,
Sě! Amor mi fa poeta!
