Signore, ascolta - Turandot

Sir, listen! Ah, sir, listen!
Liu can bear no more!
Her heart is breaking! My, how long I’ve walked
With your name in my soul
With your name on these lips!
But if your destiny
Tomorrow, will be decided,
We will die on the road of exile.
He’ll lose his son
I, the shadow of a smile.
Liù can bear no more! Ah! Ah!

Katia Ricciarelli sings Liu's first act aria in Puccini's Turandot.

Vienna, 1983. Conductor: Lorin Maazel.
