No! No! I’m crazy!
Look, I’m crazy, look,
As I cry and I beg...
As I cry, look,
As I ask for pity!...
Listen! Take me
As a cabin boy or a lower position,
And I will come happily!... Accept me!
Ah! look, I cry and I beg!
Take my blood…my life!...
I implore you, I ask you for mercy!
Ah! mercy! I will not be ungrateful!
Placido Domingo as Des Grieux in Puccini's Manon Lescaut. For me one of his best roles.
