Range Dieu! quel frisson… Amour ranime mon courage

Dieu! quel frisson… Amour ranime mon courage , a setting by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré, was composed by Charles Gounod in 1867 (Bb Major) and premiered the same year. This aria takes part in act IV of his opera, Roméo et Juliette.

This famous opéra of Charles Gounod is based on the eponym play, written by William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet. The libretto follows very closely the original play. It was premiered at the Théâtre Lyrique of Paris on the 27th of April 1867 and met immediate success.
The opera opens on a short chorus staging the rivalry between two powerful families in Verona: the Montagus and Capulets.
In the next scene, while Tybalt is talking to Paris about Juliet, she appears with her father. Romeo and his friends enter, disguised. When Romeo and Juliet meet for the first time, it is love at first sight. However, Tybalt almost surprises them and suspects Romeo to be his rival. He wants immediate revenge but Capulet asks for the ball to continue.
Act II is set in the garden of the Capulets. Juliet is at her balcony listening to Roméo. The two lovers express their passionate love.
In act III they marry secretly. This scene is followed by a duel between Tybalt and Roméo where Roméo kills Tybalt, avenging his friend Mercutio. He is banned from the city.
Act IV opens on Roméo coming to bid Juliette farewell. Their separation is terribly painful for the two lovers. The father of Juliette lets her know he has organized for her to marry Pâris. She doesn’t dare tell him she has already married Roméo. She decides to drink a potion given by Frère Jean that will give the impression she is dead (she will only be profoundly asleep) and avoid this second union. She expresses her fears and finds the courage to drink the potion in her aria: Amour ranime mon courage.
