Name That Tune
Hi opera lovers... This audio clip is supposedly from La Traviata... but I can't confirm this. I looked through the libretto but couldn't find any match.
can anyone tell me what this is from or what the lyrics are? I know, I know... it's a very short clip, but that's all I have.
"Very short" is an understatement. "Mystery lyrics?" Hardly enough time for one word!
Identification from 3 seconds of sound is a big ask. Very often when people ask for a piece of music to be identified, it would help if it were put in context. Like, how and where did you obtain this clip?
Also - and I often think this when I see this kind of post - why the burning need to identify it? I find it hard to believe that this tiny sound fragment was enough for you to say "That's incredible, I really must find out the name of that work so I can buy it and listen to it!"

I'm thinking there's at least 2-2½ words there.

I know you're right about that!

That clip is from season 2 episode 12 of Mystery Science Theater 3000. I am currently captioning the series and I do karaoke songs that are sung in the episodes. I list the songs being sung as well under the karaoke'd lyrics The guy who plays the robot who sings that is a big classical music person and there are tons of classical music references in this show (in case you're unfamiliar with it.)
Here's an example of what I do:
I am a completest, so I try to figure out all the music but sometimes it goes above my knowledge.
For what it's worth, he references Pavarotti prior to singing. It could well be another piece that Pavarotti is known for singing.
Thanks to anyone who can solve this! Plus, you'll end up in the credits.
If it's Pavarotti, which I think it is, my guess would be Nessum Dorma. I only say that because he is well known for singing it - I am not familiar with the piece.
