  1. Sounds like something it would be fun to experience.

    1. Watching the sun set over the lake, listening to "Nessun dorma" under the big open sky, is quite moving on an emotional plane (let's wait and see what the music critics will have to say about it): Nessun dorma! Nessun dorma!
      Tu pure, o, Principessa,
      nella tua fredda stanza,
      guardi le stelle ....
      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 ....
