Short aria – recit – aria format but absolutely delightful! What we go through for love. Despite being cruel, unkind, like a serpent, still he loves her and yearns for her – such pain, such tears!
This would be an excellent piece for a difficult spot in a program – total duration is only around 4 or 5 minutes
Range: f – g’
