Massenet Chérubin "Vive amour qui rêve, embrasse, et fuit" - Natalie Dessay

Singer: Natalie Dessay

DEDICATED TO MY DEAR FRIEND FROM LIGURIA, ITALY
Jules Massenet's opera Chérubin is a "light-hearted addition to Beaumarchais' Figaro plays, the action taking place soon after that of The Marriage of Figaro." The setting of the opera, obviously, is not in the Orient; however, there is a quality inherent in the orchestration of this aria that, for me, conjures up images of Japanese woodblock prints. Please forgive my free association... and please enjoy Natalie Dessay's beautiful interpretation.


Vive amour qui rêve, embrasse, et fuit!
Vive amour qui meurt en une nuit!
Pleurez-donc, damoiselles,
mais des larmes frivoles!

Vive amour qui rêve, embrasse, et fuit!
Vive amour qui meurt en une nuit!
Si l'amour a des ailes,
c'est afin qu'il s'envole!

Here's to love which dreams, kisses, and is gone!
Here's to love which dies in one night!
Weep then, young ladies,
but with light-hearted tears!

Here's to love which dreams, kisses, and is gone!
Here's to love which dies in one night!
If love has wings,
that's so it can fly off!
