L'Italiana in Algeri - Act I
Opera Company of Philadelphia, 2000
c. Corrado Rovaris
Early JDF.. there's another one of him singing 'languir' from a few years later, but this is him pretty young (only 26 here, I believe), just after his time at the AVA in Philly. He cuts some corners for sure but what a voice, even back then! He sings so well that the horn soloist can't even play the opening phrase..

LINDORO Languir per una bella E star lontano da quella, E' il più crudel tormento, Che provar possa un cor. Forse verrà il momento; Ma non lo spero ancor. Contenta quest'alma In mezzo alle pene Sol trova la calma Pensando al suo bene, Che sempre costante Si serba in amor.
English Libretto or Translation:
SCENE THIRD Lindoro alone, then Mustafa.
Lindoro Languir for a beautiful one And stay away from that, It is the most cruel torment, That proving can be a cor. Perhaps the time will come; But I still do not hope so. Content this alma In the midst of the pains Sol finds calm Thinking about his good, Which is always constant You keep in love.
