Renato Bruson: Verdi - La Forza del Destino, 'Morir! Tremenda cosa! Urna fatale del mio destino'

Singer: Renato Bruson

Renato Bruson (born 13 January 1936) is an Italian operatic baritone. Bruson is widely considered one of the most important Verdi baritones of the late 20th and early 21st century. He was born in Granze near Padua, Italy. Bruson made his operatic debut as the Conte di Luna in Il trovatore at the Teatro Lirico Sperimentale in Spoleto in 1960. The following year he was Riccardo in I puritani at the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma in Rome. His first Metropolitan Opera appearance was as Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor in 1969. In 1970 he started his collaboration with conductor Riccardo Muti in Un ballo in maschera in Florence. He made his debut at La Scala in 1972 as Antonio in Donizetti's Linda di Chamonix, at the Edinburgh International Festival in 1972 as Ezio in Attila, at Covent Garden in 1975 in the role of Renato in Un ballo in maschera, substituting with great success for Piero Cappuccilli. He debuted at the Vienna State Opera in 1978 with Macbeth, with such a success that the prestigious Austrian theatre awarded him with the important title of Kammersänger. In the 1980s he turned to the 18th century with Mozart's Don Giovanni and to Italian verismo with Umberto Giordano's Andrea Chénier. He is considered by some critics the finest Rigoletto since Tito Gobbi.[3] They appreciate his elegant and expressive phrasing, velvety tone, musical intelligence and acting qualities. He excels in long, lyrical lines. He is also appreciated for not disdaining smaller roles and for not assuming a divo attitude. Bruson once described himself in the following terms: "I am self critic enough to understand what I can get at. Since I knew I did not have a thundering voice to make coarse effects, I sought the interpretation since I think it is more important that the public go home with something in their hearts than some sounds in their ears"...
Lyrics & English Translation

To die! A terrible thing..
so fearless, so valiant,
yet he must die! A strange man, this!
He shuddered at the name
of Calatrava! Has he perhaps heard
of our dishonour? Heavens! A sudden thought!
What if he were the seducer?
And in my hands - alive!
But if I am wrong? This key will tell me!
In agitation he opens the case and takes out a sealed envelope.
Here are the papers!
What am I doing?
And the oath I swore? And my life
that I owe to his bravery? But I saved him, too!
And what if he were the cursed Indian ,
who soiled my blood?
I will break the seal,
no one can see me here.
No? But I can see myself.
He throws down the envelope and backs away in horror.
Away with you, fatal urn of my destiny;
you tempt me in vain.
I came here to redeem my honour, and in madness
will not stain it with this new shame.
An oath is sacred to a man of honour;
these papers shall keep their secret.
Perish the evil thought
that spurred me to the unworthy deed.
But if I could find some other proof?
Let's see.
Here is a portrait.
It has no seal. He said nothing about this.
I promised nothing. Let me open it then.
Heavens! Leonora!
The wounded man is Don Alvaro!
Now let him live, and then die by my hand!

SURGEON
Good news; he's saved.

CARLOS
He is saved! Oh joy!
He is saved! What immense joy
I feel flooding my heart!
At last I can avenge
the betrayal on the vile wretch!
Leonora, where are you hiding?
Tell me, have you followed into this camp
the man who reddened your face
with your father's blood?
Ah, I should be overjoyed
if this sword of mine with a single stroke
could send them both forever
down to the Prince of Darkness!
He is saved! etc.

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

CARLOUrna fatale del mio destino,Va, t'allontana, mi tenti invano;L'onor a tergere qui venni, e insanoD'un onta nuova nol macchierò.Un giuro è sacro per l'uom d'onore;Que' fogli serbino il lor mistero.Disperso vada il mal pensieroChe all'atto indegno mi concitò.E s'altra prova rinvenir potessi?Vediam.Torna a frugare nella valigiaQui v'ha un ritratto . . .Suggel non v'é … nulla ei ne disse …Nulla promisi … s'apra dunque …Ciel! Leonora!Don Alvaro è il ferito!Ora egli viva, e di mia man poi muoia!

English Libretto or Translation:

CARLOS

Away with you, fatal urn of my destiny;
you tempt me in vain.
I came here to redeem my honour, and in madness
will not stain it with this new shame.
An oath is sacred to a man of honour;
these papers shall keep their secret.
Perish the evil thought
that spurred me to the unworthy deed.

But if I could find some other proof?
Let's see.
He again rummages in the case, and finds a small locket.
Here is a portrait.
He examines it.
It has no seal. He said nothing about this.
I promised nothing. Let me open it then.
He does so.
Heavens! Leonora!
excitedly
The wounded man is Don Alvaro!
Now let him live, and then die by my hand!
