Franco Corelli "L'amour... Ah! leve-toi, soleil!" (avec le souffleur) - The legendary diminuendo

Singer: Franco Corelli

Franco Corelli's diminuendo on the final note is magic.

(Gounod: Roméo et Juliette) Metropolitan Opera, October 16, 1967

Caveat: This recording contains the (frequently very loud) prompter (souffleur). On the other hand, you will hear magnificent singing from Corelli and Pilou, including possibly Corelli's longest, most beautiful diminuendos ever at the end of "Ah! lève-toi soleil!" and "Va! repose en paix!"

Roméo - Franco Corelli
Juliette - Jeannette Pilou
Frère Laurent - Justino Díaz
Mercutio - John Reardon
Stéphano - Marcia Baldwin

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Ah! lève-toi, soleil! fais pâlir les étoiles,
Qui, dans l'azur sans voiles,
Brillent aux firmament.
Ah! lève-toi! parais! parais!
Astre pur et charmant!
Elle rêve! elle dénoue
Une boucle de cheveux
Qui vient caresse sa joue!
Amour! Amour! porte-lui mes vœux!
Elle parle! Qu'elle est belle!
Ah! je n'ai rien entendu!
Mais ses yeux parlent pour elle,
Et mon cœur a répondu!
Ah! lève-toi, soleil!, etc

English Libretto or Translation:

Ah! get up, sun! make the stars pale
Who, in the azure without veils,
Shine in the firmament.
Ah! get up! seem! seem!
Pure and charming star!
She's dreaming! she undoes
A hair curl
Who is caressing his cheek!
Love! Love! give him my wishes!
She speaks! That she is beautiful!
Ah! I did not hear anything!
But her eyes speak for her,
And my heart answered!
Ah! get up, sun, etc
