    Arrivederci Maestro Pavarotti

    Ciao Luciano

    Nessun Dorma

    Luciano Pavarotti
    1935-2007
    R.I.P

    ITALIAN;
    Nessun dorma! Nessun dorma!
    Tu pure, o, Principessa,
    nella tua fredda stanza,
    guardi le stelle
    che fremono d'amore
    e di speranza.

    Ma il mio mistero e chiuso in me,
    il nome mio nessun sapra!
    No, no, sulla tua bocca lo diro
    quando la luce splendera!

    Ed il mio bacio sciogliera il silenzio
    che ti fa mia!

    (Il nome suo nessun sapra!...
    e noi dovrem, ahime, morir!)

    Dilegua, o notte!
    Tramontate, stelle!
    Tramontate, stelle!
    All'alba vincero!
    vincero, vincero!


    ENGLISH
    None must sleep! None must sleep!
    And you, too, Princess,
    in your cold room,
    gaze at the stars
    which tremble with love
    and hope!

    But my mystery is locked within me,
    no-one shall know my name!
    No, no, I shall say it as my mouth
    meets yours when the dawn is breaking!

    And my kiss will break the silence
    which makes you mine!

    (No-one shall know his name,
    and we, alas, shall die!)

    Vanish, o night!
    Fade, stars!
    At dawn I shall win!
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    Ego will kill you. Leave it at home.
    Signed: Me!

    A nice tribute to a true legend.
    The world will be a much emptier place without the sound of his magnificent voice.
    Rest In Peace.

    As someone who has never been a fan of opera - I too am still very sad to see this legend pass on. His voice will be his lasting epitaph, much like the famous Mario Lanza from way back.

    It is good we have the ability to play his music still and continue to enjoy what he gave the world.

    A sad day for the world, no doubt... But for heaven... Their choir just got richer!

    I always enjoyed the relatively few opportunities I got to see/hear him sing on television and have a couple of his works on my iPod.
