Range Où va la jeune Indoue (air des clochettes)

Où va la jeune Indoue , a setting by Edmond Gondinet and Philippe Gille, was composed by Léo Delibes in 1883 (B minor) and premiered the same year. This aria takes part in act II of his opera, Lakmé.

Léo Delibes, like most of French composers of his time, studied at the Paris Conservatoire. Although he wrote numerous operettas and operas, he met fame with Coppélia, ou La fille aux yeux d’émail, a comic ballet. In 1883, year were Lakmé was premiered, Delibes is well in his forties and an appraised composer. The opera, inspired by French orientalism (a movement that aimed at capturing the ambience of Orient) was immediately successful and is still frequently performed.

The first act opens on Lakmé, daughter of Nilakantha singing a prayer in a hindou temple. She decides to go gather flowers with Malika. In her absence, two British officers, Gérald and Frédéric accompanied by Ellen, Rose and Mrs Bentson arrive at the temple. Gérald finds a bracelet and wonders who could have worn it. When Lakmé comes back, Gérald is astonished by her beauty. Lakmé begs him to leave. The two fall in love with each other.

Act II opens on Nilakantha who has discovered foreigners have entered the temple. Furious, he seeks for them in the village nearby disguised as a beggar, his daughter on his side. He notices his daughter’s sadness and worries. As a crowd gathers, Nilankantha forces Lakmé to recall the legend of the daughter of a pariah who saves Vishnu. She does so in her aria: Où va la jeune indoue.
