“Il Desiderio Mio Di Te (My Desire For You)”

FRANCESCA:
Paolo! Paolo!

PAOLO:
O mia vita, non fu mai tanto folle
Il desiderio mio di te. Sentivo
Già venir meno
Dentro al core gli spiriti
Che vivono degli occhi tuoi. La forza
Mi si perdeva nella notte, uscitami
Dal petto, come un fiume
Terribile di sangue fiagorosa;
E paura n’avea l’anima mia.

[Più e più volte lei reclinata bacia sui capelli appassionatamente.]
(From “Francesca da Rimini” – Libretto by Tito Ricordi after the tragedy of the same name by Gabriele d’Annunzio)

This is a close-up of Svetla Vassileva & Roberto Alagna during the rehearsal of “Francesca da Rimini”.
First performance will start January the 31st.
Conductor: Daniel Oren
Stage director: Giancarlo Del Monaco

“Only he felt he could no more dissemble,
And kissed her, mouth to mouth, all in a tremble.
Sad were those hearts, and sweet was that long kiss:
Sacred be love from sight, whate ‘er it is.
Thne world was all fotrgot, the struggle o’er,
Desesperare te Joy.
-That day they read no more.”
(from “The Story of Rimini”, A poem by Leigh Hunt)

“I heard the bells on Christmas Day; their old familiar carols play, and wild and sweet the word repeat of peace on earth, good-will to men!”.
(Henry Wadsworth Longfellow – American Poet, 1807-1882)

May you have the real spirit of Christmas and cherish peace and goodwill.
Merry Christmas.

“I have always thought of Christmas as a good time; a kind, forgiving, generous, pleasant time; a time when men and women seem to open their hearts freely, and so I say, God bless Christmas!”
(Charles Dickens – English novelist, 1812-1870)

I am wishing a Merry Christmas to everyone.
Here in Benaras Christmas always takes different shades of colours and the spirit of this celebration is almost in everything that comes along my way.
Christmas comes once a year but why not keeping it within the heart for the rest of the year…

(I take this opportunity to thank you all for your kind mails, comments and messages which I unfortunately can’t answer in time because of my awful internet connection which keeps on coming and going…)
