Tiger! Wetze nur die Klauen - Diana Damrau

Singer: Diana Damrau

One of the arias of Zaide, from Mozart's opera of the same title performed by the charming (and in this aria, a little scary... lol) Diana Damrau. The photos are from her last concert in Günzburg, Germany, except for the first one, which was taken while she was singing the 'Glitter and be gay' last year in FIFA 06 ("3 Orchester und Stars"). I know the last ones don't fit the character of the singing, but I just love them and I wanted them in. Any complaints? lol I hope you like it ^^

By the way, if I were you, I'd be careful with having the volume too loud. Just in case lol

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Tiger! wetze nur die Klauen,
freu' dich der erschlichnen Beut'.
Straf' ein törichtes Vertrauen
auf verstellte Zärtlichkeit .
Komm' nur schnell und töt' uns beide,
saug' der Unschuld warmes Blut.
Tiger! reiss' das Herz vom Eingeweide
und ersätt'ge deine Wut.
Ach mein Gomatz! mit uns Armen
hat das Schicksal kein Erbarmen.
Nur der Tod
endigt unsre herbe Not.
Tiger! wetze nur die Klauen, etc.
