CAROL NEBLETT as THAIS

Singer: Carol Neblett

CAROL NEBLETT THAÏS (Massenet): Ah! Je suis seule, seule enfin!...Dis-moi que je suis belle.” Blonde, blue-eyed, glamorous soprano Neblett (b. 1946) created a sensation in New Orleans when she sang the title role in Massenet’s exotic opera by disrobing at the footlights during the conclusion of Act I. Word spread quickly and the auditorium was full of photographers at the second performance. The Act II aria featured here was recorded from the audience on 14 IV 1973. Miss Neblett capped “Dis-moi que je suis belle” with a brilliant High D!

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Dis-moi que je suis belle
Et que je serai belle éternellement!
Que rien ne flétrira les roses de mes lèvres,
Que rien ne ternira l'or pur de mes cheveux!
Dis-le moi! Dis-le moi!
Ah! Tais-toi, voix impitoyable,
Voix que me dis: Thaïs, tu vieilliras!
Un jour, ainsi, Thaïs ne serait plus Thaïs!
Non! Non! je n'y puis croire,
Toi Vénus,
Réponds-moi de ma beauté!
Vénus réponds-moi de son éternité!
Vénus, invisible et présente!
Vénus, enchantement de l'ombre!
Vénus! Réponds-moi!
