Handel - Rinaldo - Lascia ch'io pianga mia cruda sorte - Magdalena Kozena



Lascia ch'io pianga mia cruda sorte
(Let Me Weep Over My Cruel Fate)
George Frideric Handel: Rinaldo (Almirena's aria)

This is from an excellent documentary about Magdalena Kožená, directed by Ondřej Havelka. The best opera videoclip I've ever seen. Enjoy!

Lascia ch'io pianga
Mia cruda sorte,
E che sospiri
La Liberta!

Il duolo infranga
Queste ritorte
De' miei martiri
Sol per pieta.

Let me bewail
my cruel fate,
and let me sigh for my freedom!
Only for pity's sake
let sorrow break
these bonds
of my torments.
