‘Paul Potts’ sings Nessun Dorma
Who is ‘Paul Potts hope’?
In 2007, he won the Britain’s Got Talent with Nessun Dorma. He have many key words. A cell phone salesman, shabby appearance, Poverty and bullying, car accident, tumor surgery and opera singer. The situation is difficult, but he hasn’t given up hope yet. Scraping a living, he forget the reality with singing. A lot of people are moved by his songs. Even if someone say the same thing, Impression depends on who he is. That’s why people are teary. I want to say it “Paul Potts hope”
Why ‘Nessun Dorma’?
It is an aria from the final act of Giacomo Puccini‘s opera Turandot. It is sung by Calaf who falls in love at first sight with the beautiful but cold Princess Turandot. Calaf exclaim victory! with death threats to achieve ‘love’. In the aria, Calaf expresses his triumphant assurance that he will win the princess. He‘s full of himself. Likewise, Paul Potts has a dream. That’s why he sing this song.(my guess) He cry out “vincerò!!!“. And then, he was triumphant.
He take a courage! How much time did he spend to worry?
Nessun dorma! Nessun dorma!
Tu pure, o, Principessa,
nella tua fredda stanza,
guardi le stelle
che tremano d’amore
e di speranza.
Ma il mio mistero è chiuso in me,
il nome mio nessun saprà!
No, no, sulla tua bocca lo dirò
quando la luce splenderà!
Ed il mio bacio scioglierà il silenzio
che ti fa mia!
(Il nome suo nessun saprà!…
e noi dovrem, ahime, morir!)
Dilegua, o notte!
Nobody shall sleep!…
Nobody shall sleep!
Even you, oh Princess,
in your cold room,
watch the stars,
that tremble with love and with hope.
But my secret is hidden within me,
my name no one shall know…
On your mouth, I will tell it when the light shines.
And my kiss will dissolve the silence that makes you mine!…
(No one will know his name and we must, alas, die.)
Vanish, o night!
Set, stars! Set, stars!
At dawn, I will win! I will win! I will win!
I’ve just always sung – just always sung. My voice has always been my best friend. – Paul Potts
