Non so più cosa son faccio - The Marriage of Figaro by Mozart - Elle Yana - HQ

Singer: Maria Ewing

Non So Piu Cosa Son Cosa Faccio - Cherubino's aria - courtesy of the Belgian label Adya Classics. A technopop remake of the aria sung by Cherubino from the classic Mozart comedy opera - The Marriage of Figaro ( Le Nozze di Figaro ) and yes, it's a bit of fluff but it's fun to watch and listen to. The pretty lady in the stunning dresses is Elle Yana - a singer from Belgium and the band is Ayda. For comparison purposes, I've also provided a video of the complete aria as sung by Maria Ewing from The Marriage of Figero among the other videos I have posted to Youtube:

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

CHERUBINO
Non so più cosa son, cosa faccio,
or di foco, ora sono di ghiaccio,
ogni donna cangiar di colore,
ogni donna mi fa palpitar.
Solo ai nomi d'amor, di diletto,
mi si turba, mi s'altera il petto
e a parlare mi sforza d'amore
un desio ch'io non posso spiegar.
Parlo d'amor vegliando,
parlo d'amor sognando,
all'acque, all'ombre, ai monti,
ai fiori, all'erbe, ai fonti,
all'eco, all'aria, ai venti,
che il suon de' vani accenti
portano via con sé.
E se non ho chi mi oda,
parlo d'amor con me.

English Libretto or Translation:

CHERUBINO
I no longer know what I am or what I'm doing,
Now I'm burning, now I'm made of ice ...
Every woman makes me change colour,
Every woman makes me tremble.
At the very word love or beloved
My heart leaps and pounds,
And to speak of it fills me
With a longing I can't explain!
I speak of love when I'm awake,
I speak ofit in my dreams,
To the stream, the shade, the mountains,
To the flowers, the grass, the fountains,
To the echo, the air, the breezes,
Which carry away with them
The sound of my fond words ...
And if I've none to hear me
I speak of love to myself.
