Ben Johnson from England, concert four

Duration: 02:42

Tenor Ben Johnson from England sings Ah! Je vais l'aimer (Béatrice et Bénédict) by Berlioz.

Bénédict has overheard a conversation which seems to indicate that Béatrice has fallen in love with him. He decides to return her love: as he says in Shakespeare’s Much Ado about Nothing, “Love me! Why, it must be requited … I will be horribly in love with her.”
