Gianna D'Angelo (born November 18, 1929, some sources say 1934), is an American coloratura soprano, primarily active in the 1950s and 1960s.

Born Jane Angelovich in Hartford, Connecticut, she studied first at The Juilliard School in New York City with Giuseppe De Luca. In the early 1950s, she moved to Venice, Italy, where she became a pupil of Toti Dal Monte, who also advised her to italianize her name.

She made her debut in 1954 at the Baths of Caracalla in Rome as Gilda in Rigoletto, a role that would remain one of her greatest successes throughout her career. She was rapidly invited at all the major opera houses of Italy, Naples, Florence, Bologna, Trieste, Parma, Milan, etc. She also made appearances at the Paris Opéra and the Glyndebourne Festival as Rosina in Il barbiere di Siviglia and at the Edinburgh Festival as Norina in Don Pasquale.

She made her American debut at the Cosmopolitan Opera in San Francisco, in March 1959, in the title role of Lucia di Lammermoor (opposite Giuseppe Campora and Norman Treigle), and at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, on April 5, 1961 as Gilda (with Robert Merrill as Rigoletto), and remained there for eight seasons, appearing in roles such as: Lucia, Amina, Rosina, Norina, Zerbinetta, the Queen of the Night. She also appeared in Philadelphia, Houston, New Orleans, etc.

D'Angelo made few commercial recordings, the most notable being Musetta in La bohème with Renata Tebaldi, Carlo Bergonzi and Ettore Bastianini under Tullio Serafin. Other recordings include Il barbiere di Siviglia and Rigoletto both with baritone Renato Capecchi, as well as the doll Olympia in Les contes d'Hoffmann, opposite Nicolai Gedda. A live performance of I puritani from Trieste in 1966, has also been recently released on DVD.

After retiring from singing, she became a voice teacher at the Jacobs School of Music, where she remained from 1970 until 1997.

No. 5 - Scena e Duetto

GILDA
Giovanna, ho dei rimorsi...

GIOVANNA
E perché mai?

GILDA
Tacqui che un giovin ne seguiva al tempio.

GIOVANNA
Perché ciò dirgli? Uodiate dunque
Cotesto giovin, voi?

GILDA
No, no, ché troppo è bello e spira amore …

GIOVANNA
E magnanimo sembra e gran signore.

GILDA
Signor né principe io lo vorrei;
Sento che povero più l'amerei.
Sognando o vigile sempre lo chiamo,
E l'alma in estasi gli dice: t'a...

DUCA
Esce improvviso, fa cenno a Giovanna d'andarsene, e inginocchiandosi ai piedi di Gilda termina la frase
T'amo!
T'amo; ripetilo sì caro accento:
Un puro schiudimi ciel di contento!

GILDA
Giovanna?… Alti, misera! non v'è più alcuno
Che qui rispondami!… Oh Dio! nessuno?

DUCA
Son io coll'anima che ti rispondo...
Ah, due che s'amano son tutto un mondo!

GILDA
Chi mai, chi giungere vi fece a me?

DUCA
Se angelo o demone, che importa a te?
lo t'amo.

GILDA
Uscitene.

DUCA
Uscire! … adesso!...
Ora che accendene un fuoco istesso!
Ah, inseparabile d'amore il Dio
Stringeva, o vergine, tuo fato al mio!

È il sol dell'anima, la vita è amore,
Sua voce è il palpito del nostro core.
E fama e gloria, potenza e trono,
Umane, fragili qui cose sono,
Una pur avvene sola, divina:
È amor che agl'angeli più ne avvicina!
Adunque amiamoci, donna celeste;
D'invidia agli uomini sarò per te.

GILDA
(Ah, de' miei vergini sogni son queste
Le voci tenere sì care a me!)

DUCA
Che m'ami, deh, ripetimi.

GILDA
L'udiste.

DUCA
Oh, me felice!

GILDA
Il nome vostro ditemi...
Saperlo non mi lice?

Ceprano e Borsa compariscono sulla strada

CEPRANO
a Borsa
Il loco è qui.

DUCA
pensando
Mi nomino...

BORSA
a Ceprano
Sta ben.

Ceprano e Borsa partono.

DUCA
Gualtier Maldè.
Studente sono... e povero...

GIOVANNA
tornando spaventata
Rumor di passi è fuori!

GILDA
Forse mio padre...

DUCA
(Ah, cogliere
Potessi il traditore
Che sì mi sturba!)

GILDA
a Giovanna
Adducilo
Di qua al bastione... or ite...

DUCA
Di', m'amerai tu?

GILDA
E voi?

DUCA
L'intera vita... poi...

GILDA
Non più, non più... partite.

TUTT'E DUE
Addio... speranza ed anima
Sol tu sarai per me.
Addio... vivrà immutabile
L'affetto mio per te.

Il Duca esce scortato da Giovanna.
Gilda resta fissando la porta ondè partito.

No. 5 - Scena and Duet

GILDA
Giovanna, I am ashamed...

GIOVANNA
Whatever for?

GILDA
I said nothing of the youth
who followed us to church.

GIOVANNA
Why tell him? Do you dislike
this young man, then?

GILDA
No, no, be is too handsome
and I could be tempted to love him.

GIOVANNA
And he seems generous, a fine gentleman.

GILDA
I hope he's not a gentleman or a prince;
I think I should love him more if he were poor.
Sleeping and waking, I call to him,
and my soul in ecstasy cries: I lo…

DUKE
Rushing out and waving Giovanna away, he kneels before Gilda and finishes the sentence for her.
I love you!
I love you! Speak those dear words once more
and a heaven of joy will open before me!

GILDA
Giovanna? Alas! There is no one here
to answer me! Oh, God! No one?

DUKE
I am here, and my very soul answers you.
Ah, two who love are a world in themselves!

GILDA
Who, whoever brought you here to me?

DUKE
Whether angel or devil, what does it matter?
I love you!

GILDA
Leave me.

DUKE
Leave you?… Now?…
Now that both of us burn with a single fire!
Ah, the god of love has bound
our destinies together, inseparably!

Love is the sunshine of the soul, 'tis life itself!
Its voice is the beating of our hearts.
Fame and glory, power and thrones,
are but fragile, earthbound things beside it.
One thing alone is unique, divine:
'tis love that bears us heavenwards!
So let us love, my angel?woman;
you would make me the envy of all mankind.

GILDA
(Ah, these are the tender, Ionged?for words
I have heard in my maiden dreams!)

DUKE
You love me, say it once again.

GILDA
You eavesdropped...

DUKE
How happy you've made me!

GILDA
Tell me your name...
Am I permitted to know it?

Ceprano and Borsa appear in the street below.

CEPRANO
to Borsa
This is the place.

DUKE
racking his brains
My name is …

BORSA
to Ceprano
Good.

He and Ceprano leave.

DUKE
Walter Maldè.
I am a student, and poor…

GIOVANNA
returning in a state of alarm
I can hear footsteps outside!

GILDA
My father, perhaps...

DUKE
(Ah, if I should catch
the traitor
who cost me such a chance!)

GILDA
to Giovanna
Show him out
through the garden gate... Go now

DUKE
Tell Me, will you love me?

GILDA
And you?

DUKE
For the rest of my life... then...

GILDA
No more, no more … you must go.

TOGETHER
Farewell... my heart and soul
are set on you alone.
Farewell … my love for you
will last for ever.

He leaves, escorted by Giovanna.
Gilda stands watching the gate through which be disappeared.
