Pavarotti arias A-Z: V for “Vesti la giubba”

We are very soon reaching the end of my series of posts with Pavarotti arias A-Z, so let’s go!

Today is the letter V for “Vesti la giubba” which is a wonderful aria from the Leoncavallo opera Pagliacci. The recitative that precedes this famous aria is entitled “Recitar!”.

The video is taken from a complete performance of the opera at The Metropolitan Opera conducted by James Levine. The complete performance is available on Deutsche Grammophon DVD.

Pavarotti sings so moving in this video! 🙂

Guess what! Tomorrow is the last post in this series of Pavarotti arias A-Z! 🙂
