Soldiers’ Chorus (Part I – “Or co’ dadi”), from Il Trovatore (viola cello duo)


Title: Soldiers’ Chorus “Or co’ dadi”, from the opera Il Trovatore

Composer: Giuseppe Verdi, arr. David Gable

Instrumentation: Viola and Cello

Printout: 4 pages

Note: The curtain rises at the beginning of Act III of Il Trovatore (“The Troubadour”) to reveal the camp of Count di Luna’s army, the soldiers singing Or co’ dadi (“now we play at dice”) as they prepare themselves for battle. Despite its context, Or co’ dadi is a cheerful, march-like piece. It is well suited for wedding receptions, parties, and other celebratory events.
