Singer: Ramón Vargas

RAMON VARGAS- MOZART- IDOMENEO- FUOR DEL MAR
The Mexican Tenor Ramón Vargas in this remarkable performance

Fuor del mar ho un mare in seno,
Che dei primo è più funesto,
E Nettuno ancora in questo
Mai non cessa minacciar.

Fiero Nume! dimmi almeno:
Se al naufragio è sì vicino
Il mio cor, qual rio destino
Or gli vieta il naufragar?


IDOMENEO
Saved from the sea, I have a raging sea
more fearsome than before within my bosom,
and Neptune does not cease
his threats even in this.

Stern god! Tell me at least,
if my body was so close to shipwreck,
for what cruel purpose
was that wreck withheld?

This is the best Idomeneo available on dvd, though if you have to have a "traditional" production, you might not enjoy it. I absolutely loved it, from the overture to the conclusion.
