Range Qui la voce … Vien, diletto

Qui la voce … Vien, diletto, a setting by Carlo Pepoli, was composed by Vincenzo Bellini and premiered in 1834 (Eb Major). This aria takes place in act II of his opera I Puritani.

Premiered in 1834, I puritani is known to be Bellini’s last work as he died, at the age of 33, a year later. Its libretto, written by Carlo Pepoli, finds its inspiration in the events of the English civil war of 1640. Rossini was influential at getting the Theatre-Italien in Paris to commission, the same year, two operas from two young promising Italian composers: Vincente Bellini and Gaetano Donizetti. If Bellini worried of being compared to Donizetti, the success of his opera completely overshadowed the one written by Donizetti, Marino Faliero, much to Bellini’s satisfaction. I puritani is still one of the most performed operas, worldwide.

Act I opens on a gathering of Puritan soldiers, rejoicing at the thought of an imminent victory against the Royalists. Riccardo, a puritan partisan, explains to Bruno, Elvira had been promised to him by her father, Lord Valton. However, she has fallen in love with Arturo, a Royalist and they are to be married tomorrow, leaving Riccardo alone and heart broken. Giorgio, Elvira’s uncle, comes to share with her the good news of her being able to marry the man she loves, Arturo. Arturo arrives and expresses his happiness. Valton, Elvira’s father hands him a safe conduct pass and explains he, himself, can’t be present at their wedding as he needs to escort a mysterious lady to London where she is to be trialed. Arturo is curious of her identity and finds out the lady is in fact Enrichetta, the Queen. He decides to save her and disguises Enrichetta as Elvira. They head out of the camp. They are stopped by Riccardo who lets them escape when he discovers Arturo is running away with another woman than Elvira.
At the wedding party, all discover the escape and Elvira turns mad with pain.

Act II opens on Giorgio describing Elvira’s madness since Arturo has fled. Riccardo arrives with the news Arturo has been captured and condemned to death. Meanwhile Elvira, still insane, expresses her longing for Arturo in her aria: Qui la voce … Vien, diletto.
