Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato’s performances have been called “a model of singing in which all components of the art form—technique, sound, color, nuance, diction—come together in service to expression and eloquence” by The New York Times. The revered singer presents a series of three public master classes for young opera singers who were chosen from an international pool of applicants.

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

MIMÌ
affettuosamente
D'onde lieta uscì
al tuo grido d'amore,
torna sola Mimì
al solitario nido.
Ritorna un'altra volta
a intesser finti fior.
Addio, senza rancor.
- Ascolta, ascolta.
Le poche robe aduna che lasciai
sparse. Nel mio cassetto
stan chiusi quel cerchietto
d'or e il libro di preghiere.
Involgi tutto quanto in un grembiale
e manderò il portiere...
- Bada, sotto il guanciale
c'è la cuffietta rosa.
Se... vuoi... serbarla a ricordo d'amor!...
Addio, senza rancor.

English Libretto or Translation:

MIMÌ
Whence happily she came
at your call of love Mimì
will return to her lonely nest;
she'll return once again
to embroidering imitation flowers.
Goodbye; and no hard feelings.
Listen.
Gather up the few things I left about.
Shut in my drawer
is that little gold ring,
and my prayer book.
Bundle everything up in an apron
And I’ll send the concierge.
Look, under the pillow
you'll find the pink bonnet.
If you want to, keep it as a souvenir of our love!
Goodbye, goodbye - and no hard feelings!
