Signore, ascolta! by Giacomo Puccini.
"Signore, ascolta!" is a soprano aria in act one of the opera Turandot by Giacomo Puccini. It is sung by Liù to Prince Calaf, whom she is secretly in love with. Liù sings this aria begging Calaf not to risk his life for his love to a beautiful but cold Princess Turandot, who set a condition that any man who wishes to marry her must first answer her three riddles, and if he fails, he will be beheaded.
