Aria: Porgi amor qualche ristoro

Performed by: Pradichaya Poonyarit

Countess

Porgi, amor, qualche ristoro,
Al mio duolo, a'miei sospir!
O mi rendi il mio tesoro,
O mi lascia almen morir.

Almaviva

O Love, give me some remedy
For my sorrow, for my sighs!
Either give me back my darling
Or at least let me die.

Le nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro)

The Marriage of Figaro (Italian: Le nozze di Figaro, pronounced [le ˈnɔttse di ˈfiːɡaɾo]), K. 492, is an opera buffa (comic opera) in four acts, composed in 1786 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, with an Italian libretto written by Lorenzo Da Ponte. It premiered at the Burgtheater in Vienna on 1 May 1786. The opera's libretto is based on a stage comedy by Pierre Beaumarchais, La folle journée, ou le Mariage de Figaro (first performed in 1784).

The Marriage of Figaro is now regarded as a cornerstone of the standard operatic repertoire, and it appears among the top ten at the Operabase list of the most-performed operas worldwide.
