"Israele, che vuoi? . . . Se pur giungi a trucidarlo," baritone/bass duet from Donizetti's opera Marino Faliero. This opera, set in Venice, is loosely based on historical events. In this scene, Israele Bertucci urges the Doge to join a conspiracy.

Note: I have used the text of the scene as performed on the CD No Tenors Allowed by Thomas Hampson and Samuel Ramey, which may vary from other versions of the libretto. (An excellent CD, by the way!)

Ah, Faliero! Where is your sword which saved our country then? )
