"Zitto, zitto: piano, piano" from Rossini's "La Cenerentola"

Singer: Francisco Araiza

Francisco Araiza and Claudio Desderi sing "Zitto, zitto: piano, piano" from Rossini's "La Cenerentola".

Coro e Orchestra del Teatro alla Scala · Claudio Abbado
Staged and directed by Jean-Pierre Ponnelle

Available on DVD:

Ponnelle's film of his La Scala staging is so imaginative and musically refined that it triumphs over the dubbing. Von Stade is an achingly beautiful Cinderella, Araiza a romantic Prince.
Record Review / Michael Scott Rohan, BBC Music Magazine (London) / 01. January 2006

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:



Sala nel palazzo di Don Ramiro


RAMIRO
Zitto, zitto: piano piano
Senza strepito, e rumore.
Delle due qual è l' umore?
Esattezza, e verità.

DANDINI
Sotto voce, a mezzo tuono,
In estrema confidenza,
Sono un misto d' insolenza,
Di capriccio e vanità.

RAMIRO
E Alidoro mi dicea,
Che la figlia del barone ...

DANDINI
Eh! il maestro ha un gran testone,
Oca eguale non si dà.
So due vere banderuole ...
Ma convien dissimular.

RAMIRO
Se le sposi pur chi vuole,
Seguitiamo a recitar.

English Libretto or Translation:



Hall in the palace of Don Ramiro


RAMIRO
Shut up, shut up: slowly
Without noise and noise.
Which is the mood of both?
Accuracy, and truth.

DANDINI
Under the heading, by thunder,
In absolute confidence,
They are a mixture of insolence,
Of caprice and vanity.

RAMIRO
And Alidoro told me,
What the baron's daughter ...

DANDINI
Eh! the teacher has a great head,
Equal goose is not given.
I know two real weather vanes ...
But convien dissimular.

RAMIRO
If the spouses, even those who want,
We continue to recite.
