Tune of the Day: Quando me'n vo'

from Puccini's “La bohème”, arranged for flute and piano

This soprano aria in 3/4 time, also known as “Musetta's Waltz”, is taken from Act 2 of Giacomo Puccini's opera La bohème, premiered in 1896. It is sung by the character Musetta in the presence of her bohemian friends, and is directed toward her ex-boyfriend Marcello in order to make him jealous.

When I walk alone in the street
People stop and stare at me,
And everyone looks at my beauty,
Looks at me from head to foot.

Thanks to Luis for suggesting this piece!
