Singer: Samuel Ramey

Samuel Edward Ramey (born March 28, 1942 in Colby, Kansas) is an American operatic bass with a long, distinguished career. At the height of his career, he was greatly admired for his range and versatility, having possessed a sufficiently accomplished bel canto technique to enable him to sing the music of Handel, Mozart, Rossini, yet power enough to handle the more overtly dramatic roles written by Verdi and Puccini...

SCENA OTTAVA
Assur e varie voci da opposti lati, poi satrapi.

ASSUR
(concentrato)
Il dì già  cade. Ah! sia
L'ultimo per Arsace.
Pera ormai quell'audace:
Tutto il gran colpo affretta. - In quella tomba
Ove Nino da me... da lei già  spinto...
E se là !... Se quell'ombra! - Vil terrore!...
Io...
(Varie voci da opposti lati).

Eccomi. - Ebbene'... E che recate
Agitati così? - Che fu? - Parlate. -

CORO
Ah! - la sorte ci tradì...
Più di vendetta omai - speme non c'è!
Non v'è soglio più per te.

Più vendetta? - più soglio? - e perché?

The last for Arsace.

All the great shot hurries. - In that grave
Ove Nino from me ... from her already pushed ...
And if there! ... If that shadow! - Vil terror! ...
I...
