Vittorio Grigòlo performs O dieu! de quelle ivresse from Jacques Offenbach's: Les Contes d'Hoffmann.

 

"But what pleasure the show has given over the decades, and what a marvellous frame it has provided for a succession of memorable tenors in the title-role from Placido Domingo to Alfredo Kraus and Rolando Villazon. To that line the name of Vittorio Grigòlo can now be added. He acts with terrific fervour as both the drunken wreck of the exordia and the ingenuous patsy of the central episodes, making the conflicted character deeply sympathetic ( ) he tossed off the Kleinzach ballad with witty élan and rose expansively to the ardour of Oh dieu, de quelle ivresse and the duet with Antonia (...) his is a rare vocal talent matched to a star personality."

Ô Dieu! de quelle ivresse
Embrases tu mon âme!
Comme un concert divin
Ta voix m'a pénétré!
D'un feu doux et brûlant
Mon être est dévoré;
Tes regards
Dans les miens ont épanché leur flamme,
Comme des astres radieux
Et je sens, ô ma bienaimée,
Passer ton haleine embaumée
Sur mes lèvres et sur mes yeux.
