Product details

The Aria has been adapted from my opera about the life and work of Nicola Tesla, a Serbian American engineer and inventor (1856 - 1943).

Tesla's work fell into relative obscurity following his death, until 1960, when the General Conference on Weights and Measures named the SI unit of magnetic flux density the tesla in his honour. There has been a resurgence in popular interest in Tesla since the 1990s. This is the final aria form the opera. Tesla sitting amongst stacked pigeon cages holding pigeons. He has one pigeon on his lap and he is alone in his New York apartment.

Can you hear the future?
A world of endless potential
What power What mystery
Ko-je li mo-ci ko-je li taj-ne

Can you hear the light?
Is my work but an echo in the wilderness?
Zra-ka ne-bes-ka
A ray from heaven

My name is Nikola Tesla
Do you remember me?
I can see the future
Koje li moci Koje li tajne
