Recondita armonia

Aria Details
Voice Type: Tenor
Role: Cavaradossi
Language: Italian
Translation: Hidden harmony
Opera: Tosca
Composer: Puccini

OperaPulse’s Aria of the Week – Recondita armonia (“hidden harmony”) from Puccini’s Tosca is short and packs a powerful punch as the tenor has to sustain a diesel-fueled, high-flying B flat. It’s one of the many great selections from Tosca.

Cavaradossi, a painter, sings this aria as he paints a Madonna for the church. He based the painting on a woman who prays often at the church and he sings of the differences between his picture of a fair Madonna and the darker beauty of his love, Tosca.
