Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato’s performances have been called “a model of singing in which all components of the art form—technique, sound, color, nuance, diction—come together in service to expression and eloquence” by The New York Times. The revered singer presents a series of three public master classes for young opera singers who were chosen from an international pool of applicants.

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Aria Cesare

Aure, deh, per pietà
spirate al petto mio,
per dar conforto, oh dio!
al mio dolor.
Dite, dov'è, che fa
l'idol del mio sen,
l'amato e dolce ben
di questo cor.
Ma d'ogni intorno i' veggio
sparse d'arme e d'estinti
l'infortunate arene,
segno d'infausto annunzio al fin sarà.

English Libretto or Translation:

Aria Cesare

Auras, deh, out of pity
blow my chest,
to give comfort, oh god!
to my pain.
Say, where it is, what it does
the idol of my sen,
the beloved and sweet well
of this cor.
But every round I see them
scattered arms and extinct
the injured arenas,
sign of inauspicious announcement to the end.
