Night and Love



Belle Nuit, ô nuit d'amour is from The Tales of Hoffman. The text concerns the beauty of the night and of love:
Barcarolle
Lovely night, oh, night of love
Smile upon our joys!
Night much sweeter than the day
Oh beautiful night of love!
Time flies by, and carries away
Our tender caresses forever!
Time flies far from this happy oasis
And does not return
Burning zephyrs
Embrace us with your caresses!
Burning zephyrs
Give us your kisses!
Your kisses! Your kisses! Ah!
Lovely night, oh, night of love
Smile upon our joys!
Night much sweeter than the day
Oh, beautiful night of love!
Ah! Smile upon our joys!
Night of love, oh, night of love!
Ah! ah! ah! ah! ah! ah! ah! ah! ah! ah!


Soprano Anna Netrebko and mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča, Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. Conductor: Emmanuel Villaume.
