Ah perdona al primo affetto Free Vocal Sheet Music Ah perdona al primo affetto is a little-known duet for high voices by Mozart.
This free vocal sheet music is very pretty, and has all the charm we expect from Mozart. This vocal duet needs to be better known -- it practically sings itself, it is so irresistible. From the opera "La clemenza de Tito" (The mercy of Tito), the duet roles belong to a soprano and a mezzo-soprano who plays the part of a young man -- a "trouser role," as it is known in opera.
Therefore the "male" role is set high. It may seem odd to your students at first, but it will give you an opportunity to share a little history of opera... what was a castrato, for example? VIDEO
