Range L'altra notte in fondo al mare

L’altra notte in fondo al mare, composed by Arigo Boito (text and music) was premiered in 1868. This aria takes place in Act III of his opera Mefistofele.

Mefistofele, first premiered in 1868 is the only opera that Arigo Boito ever completed. It was at first a huge fiasco, but after its revision in 1875, it proved to be a solid success. Arigo Boito liked to define himself as a musician and writer. Influenced by Wagner’s operatic approach, he always wrote his own libretto, linking music and text very closely.

The opera opens on a prologue where Mefistofele bets on being able to possess Faust’s soul. We then meet Faust (Act I) ,who feels as if followed by a mysterious monk. Later in his office, he meets the monk again and recognizes him as evil. He accepts to give him his soul in exchange for a moment of supreme joy.

Act II opens on Faust who is now young again. He seduces Marguerite and convinces her to give sleeping pills to her mother so that they can spend the night together. He then leaves her for other pleasures.

Act III opens on Marguerite alone in cell. She has been imprisoned after killing her child (the one she had with Faust) and her mother (the sleeping pills poisoned her). She expresses all her despair and confusion in her aria: L’altra notte in fondo al mare
