Range Tacea la notte

Tacea la notte, a setting by Salvatore Cammarano, was composed by Giuseppe Verdi between 1849 and 1852 (Eb major) and premiered in 1853.This aria takes place in act I of his opera, Il Trovatore.

In 1953, Verdi has just reached 40 years old and is already a famous composer. At the time of the composition of Il Trovatore, Verdi is juggling with the composition of no less than four different operas (Rigoletto, Les vêpres siciliennes and la Traviata) so the death of his librettist, Salvadore Cammarano, before he could complete the opera, made his work even more chaotic. Leone Emanuele Badare, a young poet from Naples, was chosen to complete the libretto and the opera was premiered in January 1853. Its popularity was immense and three years later, more than 200 settings of Il Trovatore, worldwide, had been performed.

Act I opens on Ferrando asking his men to remain watchful of the Count di Luna, who is restlessly walking under the window of Leonora, a noble lady. In love with her, the Count di Luna is terribly jealous after he has learnt one of his rivals has successfully won Leonora’s preference. Ferrando recounts the story of the previous count di Luna, happy father of two sons. When his youngest son was taken ill, a gypsy was accused of having bewitched him and was wrongfully burnt alive. Her daughter, Azucena, avenged her mother by abducting the baby. Before dying, the count di Luna asked his remaining son to seek for Azucena and find out what had happened to his brother.
In the meantime, Leonora confesses her love to her confidante in her aria: Tacea la notte.
