Vivaldi, La Fida ninfa, opera in 3 acts, RV 714: Aria. Alma oppressa da sorte crudele

Sandrine Piau, soprano

*

Alma oppressa da sorte crudele
pensa invan mitigar il dolore
con amore, ch’è un altro dolor.

Deh raccogli al pensiero le vele,
e se folle non sei, ti dia pena
la catena del piè, e non del cor.
********
The soul afflicted by cruel fate
believes that pain can be relieved
by love, yet love brings further pain.

Cast to the winds, therefore, such thoughts,
and unless you are senseless, confine your suffering
to the chains on your foot, non those on your heart.

“Whoever you are: in the evening step out
of your room, where you know everything;
yours is the last house before the far-off:
whoever you are.
With your eyes, which in their weariness
barely free themselves from the worn-out threshold,
you lift very slowly one black tree
and place it against the sky: slender, alone.
And you have made the world. And it is huge
and like a word which grows ripe in silence.
And as your will seizes on its meaning,
tenderly your eyes let it go…”
Rainer Maria Rilke, The Book of Images (via journalofanobody)
