Does anyone know where I can find the words and vocal notes to the Dive Dance? Sheet music, perhaps?

Not to sing, because I could never accomplish something of that great magnitude. I love the song... you can sing it? If anyone can sing that, it is entirely amazing... I absolutely love that song. Anyways, if I find the lyrics somewhere, I'd be happy to send them to you. Just give me an e-mail. P.S.- It sounds Italian.

Okay, replying to my own post here, I found the lyrics to Diva Dance! Yay! And they ARE Italian! Here they are....

Il dolce suono
Mi colpi di sua voce!...Ah, quella voce
M'e qui nel cor discesa!...
Edgardo! lo ti son reas;
Edgardo! Ah! Edgardo mio!
Si, ti son resa!
Fuggita io son da' tuoi nemici...
Un gelo mi serpeggia nel sen!...
Trema ogni fibra!...Vacilla it pie!...
Presso la fonte meco t'assidi alquanto...
Si, presso la fonte meco t'assidi...

Okay, that's all. Um, the second part? Well, mostly a bunch of Ah's. Heh. Sheetmusic? I dunno. I know it's from an opera about this girl and her lover Edgardo... I think it's called "The Mad Aria of Lucia" or something like that... Argh, I'll find the rest later. Well... that's all.

I might be very late, but for information:
This aria is from Lucia Di Lammermoor, an opera from Donizetti. You can find the part on the site http://www.dlib.indiana.edu/variations/scores/scores.html, it's the aria in N°14, in the third act.

I would love to sing this as well, if anyone happens across the sheet music can I beg you to tell me where to get it? (I really would like something that included that last part with all the fabulous notes)

• Now Playing: Emma Shapplin  

On my album it states that Emma Chaplin is the voice behind this track (including Lucia Di Lammermoor), BUT an extensive search of the web turns up no one of that name to do with this album! The name that that does come up is Emma Shapplin, a French opera singer, who sings a lot of Italian Contemporary crossover Fusion Opera and as I have heard her voice, it has an uncanny resemblence to my Fifth Element Soundtrack of The Diva Dance.
Now just to confuse you even more!, The Fifth Element sites all state that Inva Mulla Tchako is the voice behind the Diva and NOT Emma Chaplin or Emma Shapplin

What I want to know is, why put Emma Chaplin as the artist who sang this, when 1. She doesn't exist
2.her name is so close to Emma Shapplin to be confused with
3.and why should a non entity get credit in place of the real star?

Totally confused!

Ps Found this link to sheet music! Hope it's ok! www.rfkharris.com/freesheetmusic.html

OK the diva dance is actually cllaed "il douce suono" it and "Aria of 'Lucia di Lammermoor'
can be found in donizetti's saprano arias and orchestra...that is the sheet music book with all of the collections from that particular composer who was used in the movie fifth element.
type in the name at http://www.sheetmusicplus.com. they have great deals on the music.

• Now Playing: Diva Dance  

There are actually two parts to the song in the movie. The first is from the Donizetti opera, but the second, the "Diva Dance" was written for the movie, and I, too, am on a hunt for that sheet music, not for the "lyrics" but so that I can sing the notes. I'm not sure it exists for sale, though some clever person might have transcribed it. If anyone knows anything, or has taken the time to transcribe, please let me know!

  The Diva Dance on iTunes   Saturday, March 8, 2008 (1:10 p.m.) 

Thanks for posting the lyrics! I just found the Diva Dance and Lucia di Lammermoor performed by Inva Mulla Tchako on iTunes ( the latter is also found in a very nice CD called Ushuaîa ). Good luck to all who are trying to learn to sing them. You might also wanna check out Joan Sutherland's version of Lucia di Lammermoor on youtube. It's awesome.

you know you could.
Ive been using this song for a warm up for a couple years now
and the highest note in there is an 8th octave F#.
well Im natually an alto, so this was quite the feat for me
but I was able to do it.
and with your help with the lyrics, I can do it perfectly.

Just work on it.
everyday, several times a day
eventually you'll see improvment
and then boom, you'll be there

just dont give up.
