Hotel-Rialto-interior

Hotel Rialto was established in 2003 as Warsaw’s first boutique hotel and traces its style roots to the best architectural and artistic traditions of interior décor in old Warsaw. It is located in a fully-restored, early 20th century tenement house at the intersection of the Wilcza and Emilii Plater streets. The Art Deco époque formed the inspiration for the hotel’s interior design, which is consistently reflected throughout the hotel.

There are 44 rooms which contain original unique furniture from the 1920s, which has been sourced by scouring auctions across Europe. Colourful stained glass windows, bakelite light switches fashioned after the époque’s style and an elevator forming a copy of the one on the legendary Stefan Batory cruise ship emphasize the ambience of this venue. All these elements contribute to replicating the wonderful atmosphere of the 1920s. What sets Hotel Rialto apart is its stylistic coherence, making it the only place of its genre in Warsaw. The hotel offers well-prepared space for aroma therapy, fitness and a sauna for guests to rejuvenate their vital energy. Hotel Rialto, a unique and elegant five-star hotel discreetly situated in the city centre, offers easy access to the most important points of interest in Warsaw, cultural monuments, business and entertainment centres and tourist attractions.

General Rules

“Time To Say Goodbye”

(English Version) Lyrics
Vocals: Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman

Sarah
When I’m alone I dream of the horizon and words fail me
There is no light in a room where there is no sun
and there is no sun if you’re not here with me, with me
From every window unfurls my heart the heart that you have won
Into me you’ve poured the light,
the light that you found by the side of the road

Time to say goodbye
Places that I’ve never seen or experienced with you
Now I shall, I’ll sail with you upon ships across the seas,
seas that exist no more,
it’s time to say goodbye

Andrea
When you’re far away I dream of the horizon and words fail me
And of course I know that you’re with me, with me
You, my moon, you are with me
My sun, you’re here with me with me, with me, with me

Time to say goodbye
Places that I’ve never seen or experienced with you
Now I shall, I’ll sail with you upon ships across the seas,
seas that exist no more,

Both
I’ll revive them with you
I’ll go with you upon ships across the seas,
seas that exist no more,
I’ll revive them with you
I’ll go with you

You and me

Italian Translation

Con te Partirò

Sarah
Quando sono sola
sogno all’orizzonte
e mancan le parole,
si lo so che non c’è luce
in una stanza quando manca il sole,
se non ci sei tu con me, con me.
Su le finestre
mostra a tutti il mio cuore
che hai accesso,
chiudi dentro me
la luce che
hai incontrato per strada.

Time to say goodbye.
Paesi che non ho mai
veduto e vissuto con te,
adesso si li vivrò.
Con te partirò
su navi per mari
che, io lo so,
no, no, non esistono più,
it’s time to say goodbye.

Andrea
Quando sei lontana
sogno all’orizzonte
e mancan le parole,
e io si lo so
che sei con me con me,
tu mia luna tu sei qui con me,
mio sole tu sei qui, con me,
con me, con me, con me.

Time to say goodbye.
Paesi che non ho mai
veduto e vissuto con te,
adesso sì li vivrò.
Con te partirò
su navi per mari
che, io lo so,
no, no, non esistono più,

Both
Con te io li rivivrò.
Con te partirò
su navi per mari
che, io lo so,
no, no, non esistono più,
con te io li rivivrò.
Con te partirò.

Io con te

Spending a few days in Warsaw is well worth it in order to experience the unforgettable atmosphere. The city’s diversity and richness means that there is something for everyone. Historic palaces and churches meet modern architecture, and cosy cafes compete with fashionable music-filled clubs. Regardless of the reason for your visit, Warsaw will make an impression on you.

Although Warsaw’s menus feature traditional Polish cuisine, food from around the world can be found at the many restaurants suited to all tastes. The cheapest – Milk Bars – are an attraction offering a glimps of years past. Warsaw Tourist Information recommends that visitors try one of Warsaw’s culinary symbols which is undoubtedly sweet – quite literally! Try the ‘Zygmuntówka’, jelly-filled doughnuts from Blikle, or Wedel chocolate.

Puccini's Opera Turandot
turnadot

Turandot was the final opera written and composed by Giacomo Puccini and was first performed on
25 April 1926.

The Opera Turandot

  • Act 1
  • The Opera is set in Ancient China and tells the story of a Prince who falls in love with a cold princess.

    In order to marry Princess Turandot, suitors must answer three riddles and if they get them wrong they are sentenced to death. The Prince of Persia is the latest suitor to get the riddles wrong and is sentenced to die at moonrise. The crowds are blood-thirsty and they push forwards and in the midst of the hustle and bustle an old man falls to the ground and his faithful servant Liu calls for help. From the crowd appears a handsome young man and he recognises the master and servant as his long lost father, Timur, the deposed King of Tartary. Afraid for his own life Calaf tells Timur never to say his name out loud as they are still running from their enemies who took over their Kingdom. Timur tells Prince Calaf that Liu has been his most faithful servant and when Prince Calaf asks her why, she says it is because Calaf once smiled upon her many years ago.

    When the moon appears in the sky the Prince of Persia is about to be executed but the crowd sympathises with this young man with such a kind demeanour and try to change the mind of Princess Turandot to spare him his life. However, she dismisses their cries for clemency and cruelly tells the executioner to carry on with his duty.

    As soon as Prince Calaf sees Turandot he falls in love with her and is determined to answer the three riddles and marry her. Three of the Princesses’ ministers, Ping, Pang and Pong try to change his mind as they do not want any more bloodshed but Prince Calaf has made his decision. He bangs the gong and Turandot accepts his challenge.

  • Act 2
  • The Ministers, Ping, Pang and Pong are talking about Turandot’s previous unsuccessful suitors and how they would like to be free of the Princess’s bloody reign. As the trumpets sound the crowds gather under the warm morning sun to watch Prince Calaf try to answer Princess Turandot’s riddles. Before she arrives, her father, who is sitting on his throne, pleads with Prince Calaf to walk away from this challenge but Calaf refuses.

    When Princess Turandot arrives she begins by telling the story of her ancestor, Princess Lou-Ling who was brutally murdered by a conquering prince and wishing to avenge her death Turandot explains she has turned against all men and no man will ever possess her.
    Turandot then begins her first riddle:
    “What is born each night and dies at dawn?”
    “Hope!” Prince Calaf declares. Correct.
    Turandot begins her second riddle:
    “What flickers red and warm like a flame, yet is not fire?”
    “Blood.” Calaf is right again. This time the Princess is unnerved. No one has correctly answered her second riddle before.
    She asks her third riddle:
    “What is like ice yet burns?”
    There is silence from the crowd but a few moments later Calaf says “Turandot” and he is right.

    The crowd cheers and is thankful that Calaf will not be killed and no further lives will be lost in this way. However, Princess Turandot realises what this means and pleads with her father to spare her marriage to this stranger. Her father refuses but Prince Calaf decides to give her a riddle of his own and lets her have until dawn to solve it. If she answers correctly he will die but if she gets it wrong she must marry him. She accepts. The riddle is “What is my name?”

  • Act 3
  • That evening Calaf hears the decree that no one in Peking will sleep until Turandot finds out the name of her suitor. If she does not find out his name, everyone within the city will be killed. Prince Calaf sings the famous aria, Nessun Dorma (nobody sleeps).

    Ping, Pang and Pong try to convince Calaf to change his mind but he refuses. A mob threatens Calaf but they are distracted by soldiers dragging in Liu and Timur. Calaf tries to convince the mob that only he knows his own name but Liu who is ever faithful to Timur cries out that she knows the name of the stranger. She is then taken to Turandot who orders her to be tortured until she gives up the name she knows. But Liu would rather die than betray Calaf. Turandot is impressed by Liu’s loyalty and she asks how she is able to remain silent. “Love,” answers Liu. But then Liu grabs a dagger from one of he soldiers and kills herself.

    Calaf calls Turandot the Princess of Death and kisses her forcefully and she begins to weep, for that is the first time she has ever been kissed. Calaf then tells her his true name.

    Prince Calaf is sitting on the throne when Turandot turns to the crowd and tells them that she has learned the name of this stranger and his name is “Love.”

    Lyrics from the famous Aria Nessun Dorma

  • Italian Text
  • Nessun dorma! Nessun dorma!
    Tu pure, o, Principesa,
    Nella tua fredda stanza,
    Guardi le stele
    Che tremano d’amore
    E di speranza.
    Ma il mio mistero e chiuso in me,
    Il nome mio nessun sapra!
    No, no, sulla tua bocca lo diro
    Quando la luce splendera!
    Ed il mio bacio sciogliera il silenzio
    Che ti fa mia!
    (Il nome suo nessun sapra!…
    e noi dovrem, ahime, morir!)
    Diledua, o note!
    Tramontate, stelle!
    Tramontate stele!
    All’alba vincero!
    Vincero, vincero!

  • English Translation
  • Nobody shall sleep!…
    Nobody shall sleep!
    Even you, o Princess,
    In your cold room,
    Watch the stars,
    That tremble with love and with hope.
    But my secret is hidden within me,
    My name no one shall know…
    No!… No!…
    On your mouth I will tell it when the light shines.
    And my kiss will dissolve the silence that makes you mine!…
    (No one will know his name and we must, alas, die.)
    Vanish, o night!
    Set, stars! Set, stars!
    At dawn, I will win! I will win! I will win!

    It was actually made famous by Pavarotti singing this Aria at the 1990 Football World Cup in Italy.

Andrea Bocelli - Biography
bocelli-bio

Andrea Bocelli was born on
22 September, 1958 at the family farm in Lajatico and like Puccini and Mascagni, is from Tuscany.

view biography
Andrea Angel Bocelli is an Italian tenor whose music covers the genres of both pop and classical styles. He has been credited with bringing classical music to the top of the international pop charts and is a highly regarded cross-over performer with successful albums of both classical and pop music. He has sold over eighty million records worldwide and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song for his duet with Celine Dion, ‘The Prayer’. One of his most famous songs is also a duet and this time with “Time to Say Goodbye” with Sarah Brightman.

Bocelli showed a talent for music from an early age and started playing the piano when he was just six years old. His parents encouraged their musically talented son and he also learned to play the flute, saxophone, guitar, trumpet and drums. He had been born with poor eyesight and completely lost his sight after a football accident when he was twelve years old. This incident, though tragic in nature, also instilled in him a special kind of sensitivity and added depth to his personality that is often reflected in his music.

After leaving school in 1980, he studied law at the University of Pisa. He performed in piano bars in the evenings to earn some money but his big break came in1992 when a demo tape containing Bocelli’s rendition of the song ‘Miserere’ was sent to Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti. Pavarotti was highly impressed by the young musician and they recorded a duet together that became a smash hit across Europe.

He accompanied Italian rock star Zucchero on his European concert tour in 1993 and sang duets with him but was also given solo sets in the concert. He performed at a concert at the Teatro Romolo Valli in Reggio Emilia in December the same year.

He entered the Sanremo Music Festival where he won the preliminary round with the song ‘Miserere’, and participated in the main Sanremo Festival competition with ‘Il mare calmo della sera’ and won the newcomers section. He released his debut album ‘Il mare calmo della sera’ in 1994 following this win. His album ‘Songo’ was released in 1999 and it reached the top spots in pop album charts all over the world and registered worldwide sales of over 10 million copies. He was nominated for the Best New Artist at the Grammys – the first time a classical musician had been nominated for that category since 1961.

The album ‘Sacred Arias’, released in 1999 featured music composed in traditional Christian style. It had the tracks ‘Ave Maria (Funeral for a Friend)’, and ‘Panis Angelicus’. It reached at No.1 on the Canadian, Italian, and Netherlands album charts.

In 2002, his album ‘Sentimento’ was released and Lorin Maazel, along with the London Symphony Orchestra, was the conductor of the album. The album was critically praised and won several awards and accolades.
His album ‘Amore’ was released in January 2006 for the Valentine’s Day season. A remake of the Elvis Presley’s song ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ was featured on this album. It also had the duet, ‘Somos Novios (It’s Impossible)’ which he had sung with Christina Aguilera.

In 2009, he released his first ever Christmas album, ‘My Christmas’ which was a compilation of holiday favourites in English, Italian, French and German. The only original song on the album was ‘God Bless Us Everyone’. It was one of the best-selling albums of the year.

His 2013 album ‘Passione’ is a collection of Mediterranean love songs and the album contains duets with Jennifer Lopez and Nelly Furtado. The multi-lingual album has songs in English, Italian, French, and Spanish.

The album ‘Songo’, literally translated as “Dreams” in English, was a super hit. It spawned the hit singles ‘Canto della Terra’ and ‘The Prayer’ which was a duet with Celine Dion. It peaked at No.1 on the pop albums charts in Austria, Sweden and Switzerland.

His classical album ‘Sacred Arias’ is his most commercially successful classical album. The album reached the No.1 slot in the charts of several countries and has sold over five million copies. It is the biggest selling classical album by any solo artist in history.

Andrea Bocelli is the recipient of seven World Music Awards which include four awards for the Best Selling Classical Artist and three for the Best Selling Italian singer.
To date he has won six Classical BRITS Awards including the award for Outstanding Contribution to Music in 2002.
