Ponchielli: Stella del Marinar from La Gioconda by Jamie Barton

Singer: Jamie Barton

For the past 37 years, the annual Richard Tucker Award has been granted to an American singer poised on the edge of a major national and international career, with a list of winners that reads like a who’s who of international opera stars.

This year’s recipient, mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton, has been described by The Guardian as “a great artist, no question, with an imperturbable steadiness of tone, and a nobility of utterance that invites comparison not so much with her contemporaries as with mid-20th century greats such as Kirsten Flagstad.” Some of her 15-16 highlights include debuts with the Seattle Opera and Royal Opera House (Nabucco); LA Opera (Norma), and Washington National Opera (Götterdämmerung). In a preview to the November 1 Richard Tucker Gala, WQXR presents an exclusive performance and conversation with Ms. Barton.

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Ho il cor gonfio di lagrime.
Quel lume!Ah! una Madonna!

Stella del marinar! Vergine Santa,
tu mi difendi in quest'ora suprema,
tu vedi quanta passione e quanta
fede mi trasse a tale audacia estrema!
Sotto il tuo velo che i prostrati ammanta
ricovera costei che prega, e trema.
Scenda per questa fervida orazione
sul capo mio, Madonna del perdono,
una benedizion...
O Vergin, su me scenda
la tua benedizion.
