In classic Italian opera, a CABALETTA is a two-part musical form written mostly for arias. It’s the operatic score that introduces a complication within the storyline where emotions and the plot intensify.
One of the finest examples of a VIBRANT cabaletta is Di Quella Pira found in act 3, scene 2 of Giuseppe Verdi’s Il Trovatore (The Troubadour). And, one of the finest interpretations of this signature cabaletta was acted out vocally by il Maestro, Luciano Pavarotti.
Pardon me for horsing around, but here are a few VIBRANT frames set to that VIBRANT score sung by that VIBRANT tenor.
