Immediately after having participated in Florence at the event for IL MONDO CAMERETTE, our boys were invited to dinner at a very refined and particular restaurant.
You will have seen from the interior that it is a deconsecrated church. Really unique.
A nice dinner with friends.
A happy company, which after dinner intones some songs.
The boys sing together with Alberto Di Chiara, an Italian soccer coach, already known football player.
But then Piero amazes everyone by singing this song, the acoustics of the environment were perfect.
It is the beautiful air “IL LAMENTO DI FEDERICO” taken from L’ARLESIANA.
IT IS THE USUAL STORY OF THE SHEPHERD, also known as LAMENTO DI FEDERICO, is an aria from the second act of the opera L’arlesiana (1897) by Francesco Cilea. It is sung by Federico (tenor), who is hopelessly in love with a girl from Arles, called l’Arlesiana, who, on the contrary of appearances, has proved to be an unworthy woman, already engaged with Metifio. Only on the stage, Federico reads the letters that the Arlesiana sent to Metifio, the proof of his betrayal, with a broken heart.
This beautiful air has been interpreted by many famous tenors such as Beniamino Gigli and Pavarotti.
Listen to our good Piero.
Piero, I must say that your studies of classical opera are seen and heard.
Very well, Piero, continues like this, your dream of singing a whole opera, slowly is coming true.
In the upcoming concerts, you will certainly make this air feel complete.
We wait impatiently, thank you and good study!
