An Italian tenor, Maurizio Marchini, who lives in Florence, joined the nationwide flash mob a few days ago. Standing on his terrace, he sang “Nessun Dorma,” from the final act of Giacomo Puccini’s Turandot.
So beautiful and inspiring…
Nessun Dorma means “Let no one sleep.” And, of course, we all know that the famous cry “Vincerò” means “I will be victorious.”
A very apt choice for these terrible times…
thank you so much, how beautiful
I love Puccini (and Verdi, and opera in general).
The flame which crosses this opera, Turandot, somewhat told like a legendary tale, is that of enthusiasm and youth. All the deadliest ordeals are easily swept away by brilliant and victorious love and, it is one of the rare operas to end well!
Long live the Italian people!
