SCENA 2
Figaro, con la chitarra appesa al collo e detto, nascosto


N. 2 - Cavatina

FIGARO
Largo al factotum
della città.
Presto a bottega,
ché l'alba è già.
Ah, che bel vivere,
che bel piacere
per un barbiere
di qualità!
Ah, bravo Figaro!
Bravo, brayissimo;
fortunatissimo
per verità!
Pronto a far tutto,
la notte e il giorno
sempre d'intorno,
in giro sta.
Miglior cuccagna
per un barbiere,
vita più nobile,
no, non si dà.
Rasori e pettini,
lancette e forbici,
al mio comando
tutto qui sta.
V'è la risorsa,
poi, del mestiere
colla donnetta
col cavaliere
Ah, che bel vivere,
che bel piacere
per un barbiere
di qualità!
Tutti mi chiedono,
tutti mi vogliono,
donne, ragazzi,
vecchi, fanciulle:
Qua la parrucca
Presto la barba
Qua la sanguigna
Presto il biglietto
Figaro ... Figaro
Son qua, son qua.
Figaro... Figaro...
Eccomi qua.
Ahimè, che furia!
Ahimè, che folla!
Una alla volta,
per carità!
Figaro su, Figaro giù
Pronto prontissimo
son come il fulmine:
sono il factotum
della città.
Ah, bravo Figaro!
Bravo, bravissimo;
a te fortuna non
mancherà.

English Libretto or Translation:

Figaro enters with a guitar around his neck

Cavatina

FIGARO
La ran la le ra la ran la la.
Make way for the factotum of the city.
La ran la la, etc.
Rushing to his shop
for dawn is here.
La ran la la, etc.
What a merry life,
what gay pleasures
for a barber
of quality.
Ah, bravo Figaro,
bravo, bravissimo, bravo!
La ran la la, etc.
Most fortunate of men,
indeed you are!
La ran la la, etc.

Ready for everything
by night or by day,
always in bustle,
in constant motion.
A better lot
for a barber,
a nobler life
does not exist.
La la ran la la ran la, etc.

Razors and combs,
lancets and scissors,
at my command
everything's ready.
Then there are "extras"
part of my trade,
business for ladies
and cavaliers …
La la ran la …la …la.
Ah, what a merry life,
what gay pleasures,
for a barber
of quality.

All call for me,
all want me,
ladies and children,
old men and maidens.
I need a wig,
I want a shave,
leeches to bleed me,
here, take this note.
All call for me,
all want me.
I need a wig,
I want a shave,
here, take this note.
Ho, Figaro, Figaro, Figaro, etc.
Heavens! what a commotion!
Heavens! What a crowd!
One at a time,
for pity's sake.

Ho, Figaro! - I am here!
Figaro here, Figaro there,
Figaro up. Figaro down.
Quicker and quicker
I go like greased lightning,
make way for the factotum of the city,

Ah, bravo, Figaro,
bravo, bravissimo,
On you good fortune
will always smile.
La la ran la, etc.
I am the factotum
of the city.
