The opera's most famous aria, "Un bel dí vedremo" ("One beautiful day, we will see"), in which the heroine professes her faith in her lover, ranks among the most popular works in the soprano repertoire. "Dovunque al mondo" ("Throughout the world") characterizes Butterfly's American officer with a musical theme based on "The Star Spangled Banner." Other highlights include the endings of each of the three acts: the extended love duet "Vogliatemi bene" ("Love me, please."); the wordless beauty of "Coro a bocca chiusa," ("Humming Chorus"); and the climactic aria "Con onor muore" ("To die with honor"). This authoritative 1906 edition of one the world's most beloved operas features the original Italian lyrics.
