Dolora Zajick: Verdi - IL Trovatore, 'Stride la vampa'

Singer: Dolora Zajick

Dolora Zajick (pronounced ZAH jick) (born 24 March 1952 in Salem, Oregon) is an American mezzo-soprano who specializes in the Verdian repertoire. Zajick is arguably the leading exponent in the dramatic Verdian mezzo-soprano repertoire in the world today and has been described as having "one of the greatest voices in the history of opera". After winning the Bronze Medal at the 7th International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and being accepted in the San Francisco Opera's Merola Program, she debuted with the San Francisco Opera as Azucena in Il trovatore which launched her to international stardom. In addition to the role of Azucena, Zajick is well known for her interpretations of Amneris and Eboli (in Verdi's Aida and Don Carlo respectively). Zajick has also performed in other Verdi roles, including Ulrica in Un ballo in maschera and Lady Macbeth in Macbeth. She has also appeared as the Princess in Cilea's Adriana Lecouvreur, Marfa in Moussorgsky's Khovanshchina, Jezibaba in Dvo?ák's Rusalka, Joan in Tchaikovsky's The Maid of Orleans, Santuzza in Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana and Adalgisa in Bellini's Norma. In 2005, she created the role of Elvira Griffiths in Tobias Picker's An American Tragedy at the Metropolitan Opera, New York. In recent years she made her debut as Ortrud in Wagner's Lohengrin with Los Angeles Opera under the baton of James Conlon, and as The Old Countess in Tchaikovsky's The Queen of Spades also at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. In 2012, San Francisco Opera announced that in the fall of 2013, Zajick would star in the title role of Tobias Picker and J.D. McClatchy's opera Dolores Claiborne, based on Steven King's novel of the same name. Since her debut in San Francisco, she has sung with such companies as Nevada Opera in Reno, Nevada, Metropolitan Opera in New York, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Houston Grand Opera, Arena di Verona, Vienna State Opera, Opera Bastille, La Scala, and the Royal Opera, Covent Garden. She has appeared with some of the foremost conductors of her era including James Conlon, Daniele Gatti, Valery Gergiev, James Levine, Lorin Maazel, Zubin Mehta, Riccardo Muti, and Michael Tilson Thomas. Since 2006, in addition to her performing career, Zajick has been a driving force in the work of the Institute for Young Dramatic Voices. This was created to address the severe shortage of large, dramatic voices, especially for the great roles of the Verdi, Strauss and Wagner repertoire, by finding, developing, and inspiring the next generation of these unique talents so they may reach the world's great opera stages...

Lyrics & English Translation

The crackling flame fizzles!
the unyielding crowd
runs to that fire
happy in countenance;
Merry shouts
echo all around;
escorted by guards
a woman makes forth!
Sombre shines
on that terrible faces
the gloomy flame
that reaches up to the sky!
The crackling flame fizzles!
The victim arrives,
clad in black,
half-dressed, barefoot!
A ferocious cry
of death rises.
the echo repeats
it all along the cliffs!
Sombre shines
on that terrible faces
the gloomy flame
that reaches up to the sky!

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

AZUCENA
Canta: gli Zingari le si fanno allato

Stride la vampa! - la folla indomita
Corre a quel fuoco - lieta in sembianza;
Urli di gioia - intorno echeggiano:
Cinta di sgherri - donna s'avanza!
Sinistra splende - sui volti orribili
La tetra fiamma - che s'alza al ciel!

Stride la vampa! - giunge la vittima
Nerovestita, - discinta e scalza!
Grido feroce - di morte levasi;
L'eco il ripete - di balza in balza!
Sinistra splende - sui volti orribili
La tetra fiamma - che s'alza al ciel!

English Libretto or Translation:

AZUCENA
The flame crackles! The unrestrained mob
runs to that fire, their faces all happy!
Shouts of joy re?echo around;
surrounded by killers, a woman comes forward!
Sinister, shining on the horrible faces,
the ghastly flame rises, rises towards heaven!
The flame crackles! The victim arrives,
dressed in black, dishevelled, barefoot!
A fierce shout of death is raised,
its echo repeated from hill to hill!
Sinister, shining, etc.
