Roxana Briban-"Tacea la notte placida....Di tale amor che dirsi," Il Trovatore (G. Verdi)

Singer: Roxana Briban

Sanxay, August, 2007

The great Romanian soprano Roxana Briban (28 October 1971 – 20 November 2010) performs one of her most affective roles, Leonora from Il Trovatore. This is a tribute to her life, truly dedicated to the art of singing. Her wonderful, unique voice combined with passion and emotion, refinement and great acting skills brought us legendary performances in roles like Cio Cio san (Madama Butterfly), Violetta (La Traviata), Elisabetta di Valois (Don Carlo), Aida, Leonora (Il Trovatore), Alice Ford (Falstaff), Amelia Grimaldi (Simon Boccanegra), Mimi, Micaela, Hanna Glawari, Margherita/Elena(Mefistofele), Requiem (Verdi), Contessa(Le Nozze di Figaro), Donna Anna/Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni), Leila (les Pecheurs de Perles), Nedda (I Pagliacci), . Unfortunately, in a tragic day of 20th of November 2010, Roxana became our angel. May she rest in peace! Lux aeterna!

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

CONTE
Tace la notte! immersa
Nel sonno, è certo, la regal Signora;
Ma veglia la sua dama...
Oh! Leonora,
Tu desta sei; mel dice,
Da quel verone, tremolante un raggio
Della notturna lampa...
Ah! l'amorosa fiamma
M'arde ogni fibra!...
Ch'io ti vegga è d'uopo,
Che tu m'intenda...
Vengo... A noi supremo
È tal momento...
Cieco d'amore avviasi verso la gradinata. Odonsi gli accordi d'un liuto: egli s'arresta
Il Trovator! Io fremo!

English Libretto or Translation:

COUNT
The night is still!
The queen is surely
immersed in sleep;
but her lady is wakeful –
Oh! Leonora, you're awake;
I'm told, from that balcony,
by the quivering ray
of your night lamp.
Ah, the flame of love
burns my every fibre!
I must see you,
you must hear me. I'm coming.
This is our supreme moment.
He starts to go up the steps, but stops, hearing a lute.
The Troubadour! I tremble with rage!
