We cannot remember if we have listen this great aria or not but… I know this singer is not precisely Pavarotti but it deserves. I would like to watch this TV program someday. Enjoy him and have a great day.

P.S: The aria is great. Best Leoncavallo opera and his best aria (of course).


Recitar! Mentre preso dal delirio,
non so più quel che dico,
e quel che faccio!
Eppur è d’uopo, sforzati! Bah! sei tu forse un uom? Tu se’ Pagliaccio!
Vesti la giubba,
e la faccia in farina.
La gente paga, e rider vuole qua.
E se Arlecchin t’invola Colombina,
ridi, Pagliaccio, e ognun applaudirà!
Tramuta in lazzi lo spasmo ed il pianto;
in una smorfia il singhiozzo il dolor, Ah!
Ridi, Pagliaccio,
sul tuo amore infranto!
Ridi del duol, che t’avvelena il cor!

English Translation

To recite! While taken with delirium,
I no longer know what it is that I say,
or what it is that I am doing!
And yet it is necessary, force yourself!
Bah! Can’t you be a man?
You are “Pagliaccio”

Put on the costume,
and the face in white powder.
The people pay, and laugh when they please.
and if Harlequin invites away Colombina
laugh, Pagliaccio, and everyone will applaud!
Change into laughs the spasms of pain;
into a grimace the tears of pain, Ah!
Laugh, Pagliaccio,
for your love is broken!
Laugh of the pain, that poisons your heart!

    How very lovely of you to take note of the charms of Prince Poppycock, John Quale. I have had the pleasure of seeing him perform in person several times, and it is an experience not to be missed! He is slated to appear in Venice at Il Ballo Doge for Carnival next year if you would like to see him. His character, Prince Poppycock, is based on the Commedia del Arte, which is an interesting theatrical opportunity! Here is a link to his Facebook page, and you can find many more video’s on youTube as well.
    Please feel free to direct any questions to me.
