Nessun dorma!

Describe what it feels like to hear a beautiful piece of music or see a stunning piece of art.

Nesun dorma! Nesun dorma!

No-one sleeps!, but not because of the stars trembling with love, but because of the beauty of the Sounds of Music flowing like an Ol’ Man River depicting that feeling and thousands more in a magic string you’ll hope never ends and then finishes so soon.

No-one sleeps….no-one sleeps,
Even you, O Princess,
in your cold room,
Watch the stars
which tremble with love
and hope!

But my secret is locked within me,
no-one shall know my name!
No, no, I shall say it on your mouth
when the light breaks!

And my kiss will break the silence
that makes you mine!

(No-one shall know his name,
and we, alas, shall die!)

Vanish, o night!
Set, ye stars!
At dawn I shall win!
