Cette représentation a été diffusée en direct sur France 3 et France Musique mais ceci est mon enregistrement.
Comme vous pouvez en juger par le son, le mistral, pourtant faiblissant en fin de journée, était au rendez-vous !
------------------------------
This performance was broadcast live on France 3 TV and France Musique Radio but this is my own recording.
As you can tell from the audio, a strong and chilly wind, although it was calming down in the evening, was also present!

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Vesti la giubba,
e la faccia in farina.
La gente paga, e rider vuole qua.
E se Arlecchin t'invola Colombina,
ridi, Pagliaccio, e ognun applaudirà !
Tramuta in lazzi lo spasmo ed il pianto;Change into laughs the spasms of pain;
in una smorfia il singhiozzo
il dolor, Ah!
Ridi, Pagliaccio,
sul tuo amore infranto!
Ridi del duol, che t'avvelena il cor!

English Libretto or Translation:

Put on the costume,
and the face in white powder.
The people pay, and laugh when they please.
and if Harlequin invites away Colombina
laugh, Pagliaccio, and everyone will applaud!
into a grimace the tears of pain, Ah!

Laugh, Pagliaccio,
for your love is broken!
Laugh of the pain, that poisons your heart!
