E lucevan le stelle
"E lucevan le stelle" is a romanza from the third act of Giacomo Puccini's opera Tosca, composed in 1900 to an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa. It is sung by Mario Cavaradossi, a painter in love with the singer Tosca, while he waits for his execution on the roof of Castel Sant'Angelo. Written in B minor, it is one of the most famous opera arias. The vocal range extends from F♯₃ to A₄. The aria is introduced by a somber clarinet solo. The incipit of the melody is repeated on the lines "O dolci baci, o languide carezze", and also restated in forte in the closing bars of the opera, as Tosca jumps from the ramparts.
