Puccini - Manon Lescaut - Sola, perduta, abbandonata - Renata Scotto

Singer: Renata Scotto

Manon Lescaut is an opera in four acts by Giacomo Puccini. The story is based on the 1731 novel L'histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut by the Abbé Prévost.

A vast plain near the outskirts of the New Orleans territory

The act begins with the lovers are making their way across the desert hoping to find protection in a British settlement. Wandering in the desert without any water, the ailing Manon is exhausted. She falls and can't go any further (Des Grieux, Manon: Tutta su me ti posa) ; (Des Grieux: Vedi, son io che piango) ; (Manon, Des Grieux: Sei tu che piangi).

Des Grieux is alarmed by Manon's appearance and goes to look for water. While he is gone, Manon recalls her past, muses about her fatal beauty and her fate (Manon: Sola, perduta, abbandonata).

Des Grieux returns, having been unable to find water. Manon bids him a heart-rending farewell and dies in his arms. Overcome by grief, Des Grieux falls unconscious across her body (Manon, Des Grieux: Fra le tue braccia, amore).

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ATTO QUARTOIn America

Una landa interminata sui confini della Nuova Orleans.

Terreno brullo ed ondulato. Orizzonte vastissimo. Cielo annuvolato. Cade la sera.
Manon e Des Grieux si avanzano lentamente dal fondo; sono poveramente vestiti e hanno l'aspetto di persone affrante. Manon,
pallida, estenuata, si appoggia sopra Des Grieux che la sostiene con fatica.


DES GRIEUX
avanzandosi
Tutta su me ti posa,
o mia stanca diletta.
La strada polverosa,
la strada maledetta
al termine s'avanza.

MANON
Innanzi, innanzi ancor!
L'aria d'intorno
orsi fa scura.

DES GRIEUX
Su me ti posa!

MANON
Erra la brezza nella gran pianura
e muore il giorno!
Innanzi! Innanzi! no …
Cade.

DES GRIEUX
con angoscia
Manon!

MANON
sempre più debole
Son vinta! Mi perdona!
Tu sei forte, t'invidio;
Donna, debole, cedo!

DES GRIEUX
Tu soffri?

MANON
Orribilmente!
Des Grieux si mostra profondamente addolorato. Manon si sforza di rassicurarlo.
No! che dissi? … una vana,
una stolta parola …
Deh, ti consola!
Chieggo breve riposo …
Un solo istante …
Mio dolce amante,
a me t'appressa, a me!
Sviene.

English Libretto or Translation:

ACT FOURTHIn America

A land interminated on the borders of New Orleans.

Dirty and wavy terrain. Huge horizon. Cloudy sky. Falls in the evening.
Manon and Des Grieux advance slowly from the bottom; they are poorly dressed and look like hurrying people. Manon,
pale, exhausted, she leans on Des Grieux, who supports her with difficulty.

DES GRIEUX
advancing
All over me, you pose,
or my tired beloved.
The dusty road,
the damn road
at the end one advances.

MANON
Before, even before!
The air around
bears dark.

DES GRIEUX
On me you pose!

MANON
The breeze was in the great plain
and die the day!
First! First! no …
Cade.

DES GRIEUX
with anguish
Manon!

MANON
increasingly weak
Son won! Forgive me!
You are strong, I envy you;
Woman, weak, I give up!

DES GRIEUX
Are you suffering?

MANON
Horribly!
Des Grieux shows himself deeply saddened. Manon tries to reassure him.
No! what did I say? ... a vain,
a foolish word ...
Oh, please!
I ask for a short rest ...
One moment ...
My sweet lover,
I address you, to me!
She faints.
