Un bel di from Madame Butterfly. Guest soprano Barbara Padilla appears with the Heartland Festival Orchestra and Artistic Director David Commanday. August 27th, 2010

Un bel di, vedremo -- One fine day you shall see

Un bel dì, vedremo
Levarsi un fil di fumo
Sull'estremo confin del mare
E poi la nave appare
E poi la nave è bianca.
Entra nel porto, romba il suo saluto.
Vedi? È venuto!

Io non gli scendo incontro, io no.
Mi metto là sul ciglio del colle
E aspetto gran tempo
e non mi pesa a lunga attesa.
E uscito dalla folla cittadina
Un uomo, un picciol punto
S'avvia per la collina.
Chi sarà? Chi sarà?
E come sarà giunto
Che dirà? Che dirà?
Chiamerà Butterfly dalla lontana
Io senza far risposta
Me ne starò nascosta
Un po' per celia,
Un po' per non morire
Al primo incontro,
Ed egli al quanto in pena
Chiamerà, chiamerà :
"Piccina - mogliettina
Olezzo di verbena"
I nomi che mi dava al suo venire.
Tutto questo avverrà,
te lo prometto

Tienti la tua paura -
Io con sicura fede lo aspetto.

English Translation

One fine day, we will see
Arising a strand of smoke
Over the far horizon on the sea
And then the ship appears
And then the ship is white
It enters into port, rumbles its salute
Do you see it? He is coming!

I don't go down to meet him, not I.
I stay upon the edge of the hill
And I wait a long time
but I do not grow weary of the long wait
And leaving from the crowded city,
A man, a little speck
Climbing the hill.
Who is it? Who is it?
And when he arrives
What will he say? What will he say?
He will call Butterfly from a distance
I without answering
Stay hidden
A little to tease him,
A little so as not to die.
At the first meeting,
And then a little troubled
He will call, he will call
"Little one, dear wife
Orange-Blossom"
The names he gave me at his last visit.
All this will happen,
I promise you this

Hold back your fears -
I wait for him with certain faith.
