Fin ch'han dal vino – Don Giovanni

Until they have become hot-headed with wine,
Let’s prepare a grand party.
If you find a girl in the piazza,
Try to bring her here.
May the dance be wild,
Who will be the minuet, who the folia
Who will dance the allemande with you.                       
Meanwhile, I’ll be singing my own song 
Flirting with this girl and that girl.
Ah you must add to my list
About ten entries tomorrow morning

Simon Keenlyside sings the champagne aria from Mozart's Don Giovanni.

Ferrara, 1997. Conductor: Claudio Abbado.
