Roberto Alagna sings this aria of love and desire from I Lombardi, Act II, Claudio Abbado conducting the Berliner Philharmoniker. Verdi later rewrote this aria for the Paris Opera as "Je veux encor entendre". The role was made larger, and a high C was added (evidently not usual in Verdi) specifically for the opera's leading tenor, Gilbert Duprez. You can see Roberto Alagna performing this aria on YT as well (en francais). The slideshow features some of Alagna's most famous roles Romeo, Rodolfo in "la Boheme" , Don Jose in "Carmen", Ruggero in "La Rondine", Faust, Il Duca in "Rigoletto", Mario in "Tosca", Turiddu in "Cavalleria Rusticana", Nemorino in "L'Elisir d'Amore", Des Grieux in "Manon" and Manrico in "Il Trovatore".
