In Cuale Ora Bruna?

 

Finally reviving my “good morning” tag, here’s “Come In Quest’Ora Bruna”, from Verdi‘s Simon Boccanegra at the Met Opera in 1995 as sung by Dame Kiri Te Kanawa:

Just listening to the opening I could’ve sworn it was some sort of dusk or dawn aria, but I couldn’t find any explicit reference to the time for a long time…  But Wikipedia says this first act begins before sunrise though, so guess that settles it.

Also, didn’t know about the Kiri Te Kanawa Foundation, dedicated to supporting opera singers in her native New Zealand.  Cute!
