Addio, fiorito asil – Madama Butterfly

Yes, all in an instant
I see my mistake and I feel
That from this torment
I will have no respite.
Forever that mild countenance
I will see, with excruciating agony,
Forever that sweet voice
I will hear mourning.

Farewell flowery refuge
Of joy and love
I cannot bear your misery
I must run away, I must run away – I am vile.

Peter Dvorsky as Pinkerton in Puccini's Madame Butterfly. With Richard Stilwell as Sharpless.

Chicago, 1985.
