Grace Moore - Entrance of Butterfly ("Ancora un passo or via")

Singer: Grace Moore

Click for higher quality audio/video:
Grace Moore sings "Ancora un passo or via" from Puccini's "Madama Butterfly." I don't know who the other singers are; it was recorded for a scene in her 1934 picture "One Night of Love."

This is another one I'm not sure about the pitch on. On the recording the way I got it, her final note was D5 but I'm pretty sure it's written as Db5. I don't know if she transposed it or not but I had to lower the pitch a bit. My head was spinning after listening to that note loop for over a minute; I'm not going to worry about it any more after that. And please forgive me for my rather crude job colorizing this photo but still it's a little more interesting than black and white!

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

LE AMICHE
Ah! ah! ah! ah!
Ah! Quanto cielo! Quanto mar!
sempre interno
Quanto cielo! Quanto mar!

BUTTERFLY
interno
Ancora un passo or via.

LE AMICHE 
Come sei tarda!

BUTTERFLY
Aspetta.

LE AMICHE
Ecco la vetta.
Guarda, guarda quanti fior!

BUTTERFLY
serenamente
Spira sul mare e sulla terra
un primaver il soffio giocondo.

LE AMICHE
Quanto cielo! Quanto mar!

SHARPLESS
O allegro cinguettar di gioventù!

BUTTERFLY
Io sono la fanciulla più lieta del Giappone, anzi del mondo.
Amiche, io son venuta al richiamo d'amor!
d'amor venni alle soglie!
ove s'accoglie il bene di chi vive e di chi muor!
Amiche, io son venuta al richiamo d'amor,
al richiamo d'amor,
son venuta al richiamo d'amor, d'amor!

LE AMICHE
Quanti fior! Quanto mar!
Quanto cielo! Quanti fior!
Gioia a te, gioia a te sia, dolce amica,
ma pria di varcar la soglia che t'attira
volgiti e mira le cose che ti son care,
mira quanto cielo, quanti fiori, quanto mar!...
si cominciano a scorgere le Geishas che montano il sentiero
Gioia a te, gioia a te sia, dolce amica,
ma pria di varcar la soglia
volgiti e guarda le cose che ti son care!
appaiono in scena hanno tutte grandi ombrelli aperti, a vivi colori

BUTTERFLY
alle amiche
Siam giunte.
vede il gruppo dei tre uomini e riconosce Pinkerton. Chiude subito l'ombrello e pronta lo addita alle amiche.
B.F. Pinkerton. Giù!
si genuflette

LE AMICHE
chiudono gli ombrelli e si genuflettono
Giù!
Tutte si alzano e si avvicinano a Pinkerton cerimoniosamente.

English Libretto or Translation:

THE FRIENDS
Ah! ah! ah! ah!
Ah! How much heaven! How much mar!
always inside
How much heaven! How much mar! Internal

BUTTERFLY
One more step or so.

THE FRIENDS
How late you are!

BUTTERFLY
Wait.

THE FRIENDS
Here is the summit. Look, look how many flowers!

BUTTERFLY
serenely
Spira on the sea and on the earth a primaver the joyous breath.

THE FRIENDS
How much heaven! How much mar!

SHARPLESS
O cheerful chirping of youth!

BUTTERFLY
I am the happiest girl in Japan, indeed in the world. Friends, I came to the call of love! of love I came to the threshold!

where one welcomes the good of those who live and those who die!
Friends, I came to the call of love,
to the call of love,
I came to the call of love, of love!

THE FRIENDS
How many flowers! How much mar!
How much heaven! How many flowers!
Joy to you, joy to you both, sweet friend,
but before crossing the threshold that attracts you
turn and aim at the things that are dear to you, look
how much heaven, how many flowers, how much sea! ...
you begin to see the Geishas that mount the path
Joy to you, joy to you both, sweet friend,
but before crossing the threshold
turn and look at the things that are dear to you!
they appear on stage they all have large open umbrellas, in vivid colors

BUTTERFLY
to the friends
Siam joined.
he sees the group of the three men and recognizes Pinkerton. He immediately closes the umbrella and is ready to point it to his friends.
BF Pinkerton. Down!
yes genuflette

THE FRIENDS
close the umbrellas and they genuflect
Down!
They all get up and approach Pinkerton ceremoniously.
