Cecilia Bartoli Non Piu Mesta, from La Cenerentola (with score)

Singer: Cecilia Bartoli

Ok oops. This video was accidentally deleted. But here it is again lol.

Cecilia Bartoli sings Non Piu Mesta from La Cenerentola by Rossini. The prominent contralto Geltrude Righetti created the role.

Cecilia ornaments this aria a lot so the score doesn't really say what exactly is sung. Enjoy.

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

CENERENTOLA
Padre ... Sposo ... Amico ... oh istante!
Non più mesta accanto al fuoco
Starò sola a gorgheggiar.
Ah! fu un lampo, un sogno, un gioco
Il mio lungo palpitar.

TUTTI
Tutto cangia a poco a poco:
Cessa alfin di sospirar.
Di fortuna fosti il gioco;
Incomincia a giubilar.

English Libretto or Translation:

CINDERELLA
Father ... Spouse ... Friend ... oh instant!
No longer saddened by the fire
I will be alone in gorgheggiar.
Ah! it was a flash, a dream, a game
My long palpitar.

ALL
Everything changes gradually:
He ceases to sigh.
Fortunately, you were the game;
It starts to jubilate.
