Sì, ritrovarla io giuro – La Cenerentola

Yes, I swear I will find her.
Love, love, move me:
If she were in the lap of Jupiter
I would find her.

Beloved, dear proof
That at least gratifies me
Ah! The lip and the breast
How I will cling to you!

We will fly, we will ask,
We will seek, we will find.
Sweet hope, cold fear,
Inside my heart
They are fighting;
Love, love,
Give me guidance.

Ramon Vargas in Rossini's Cenerentola.

Met, 1997
