Flower duet – Anna Netrebko & Elina Garanca (Lakmé de Delibes) The Society November 9, 2013 Performing Arts Duo des fleurs Léo Delibes By U. Carew Delibes Along a stream, the daughter of a Brahmin priest and her maidservant sing and gather flowers, pleased beneath the floral canopy, light in the East, white jasmine mingled with rose, morning’s laughter seized. ‘O, let us gently glide along th’ enchanting flow. O, let us drift together for forever eased, that current following, wherever it might go, upon the rippling, gleaming waters, to the shore, so nonchalantly passing bird-chants in that glow, o, past snow-winged swans, soft blue lotuses, and more, so like the lovely Lady of Shalott, at peace before the shutting of the door. O, je t’ adore.’ NOTE: The Society considers this page, where your poetry resides, to be your residence as well, where you may invite family, friends, and others to visit.
