Luciano Pavarotti - Ah mes amis - Live at the Met 1972

Singer: Luciano Pavarotti

Luciano Pavarotti's first ever performance of La fille du regiment at the Met. The audience goes wild, quite rightly too. This performance took place on the 17th of February 1972.

From act I of Donizetti's La fille du regiment

Live 1972 - The Metropolitan opera orchestra conducted by Richard Bonynge

Here are some parts of a review about this performance:

''The show was constantly being stopped Thursday night at the Metropolitan Opera, where a new production of Donizetti's "La Fille du Régiment" was staged. Joan Sutherland stopped the show at her entrance and several times thereafter. Luciano Pavarotti stopped the show with his first aria and, later, with the "Quel desin" aria, the one with the nine - high C's.''

^ The reviewer named the aria wrongly of course

''In the last two years Luciano Pavarotti has come up fast, and today he is the reigning tenor in the lyric side of the Italian repertory. God has kissed his vocal cords, as he has said. This is a voice on the Gigli order, though used with more taste and musicianship. He sings the B's and C's as though he is not afraid of them, and the voice has an absolutely unbroken scale.''

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

TONIO
Ah! mes amis, quel jour de fête!
Je vais marcher sous vos drapeaux.
L'amour qui m'a tourné la tête
Désormais, désormais, me rend un héros.
Ah! quel bonheur oui mes amis
Je vais marcher sous vos drapeaux.
Oui, celle pour qui je respire,
A mes voeux a daigné sourire
Et ce doux espoir de bonheur
Trouble ma raison et mon coeur!
Ah! mes amis, quel jour de fête!
Je vais marcher sous vos drapeaux.
