Luigi Alva sings Il Mio Tesoro from Don Giovanni by Mozart
Il mio tesoro intanto
andate a consolar,
E del bel ciglio il pianto
cercate di asciugar.
Ditele che i suoi torti
a vendicar io vado;
Che sol di stragi e morti
nunzio vogl’io tornar.
Meantime go and console my dearest one,and seek to dry the tears from her lovely eyes. Tell her that I have gone to avenge her wrongs,and will return only as the messenger of punishment and death.
