Singer: Marcello Giordani

When I listened to this I found out that I sang a good HIGH B(not written) and also a high D,also not written.Some say the D was a bit "like shouting"but I am happy to have found that I can do it,if it will not get more beatuty I will not sing it.A few tenors sing it "live " I think the best on youtube is Marcello performances.Opera managers ,opera conducters and people working in the operafield.(Agents in opera).I am trying to put all the opera,Rigoletto,the part of the Duke,on video.Auditioning for a job ,(in SMALLER HOUSES),I know the tenor part.Some of the videos wont come on youtube,will have to sing them again. I sang this aria a few weaks ago,think that here I sing a better High D. I hope that my conserts have made me stronger.(Seven conserts on ten days,with 12 HIGH C .) Kári Friðriksson,available for conserts and singing in operas.Know the tenorpart in seven operas.

(Ah, tutto il ciel non mi rapì!)
alzandosi con gioia
(Possente amor mi chiama,
Volar io deggio a lei:
Il serto mio darei
Per consolar quel cor.
Ah! sappia alfin chi l'ama
Conosca alfin chi sono,
Apprenda ch'anco in trono
Ha degli schiavi Amor.)

English Libretto or Translation:

(Ah, heaven has not stolen everything from me!)
joyfully, rising
(Mighty love calls me,
and I to her must fly:
I would give my crown
to console her heart.
Ah, she shall know at last who loves her
and learn who I really am:
she shall learn that Love counts
among his slaves even those on thrones.)
