Je crains de lui parler la nuit

Je crains de lui parler la nuit,
J’ecoute trop tout ce qu’il dit,
Il me dit: «Je Vous aime…»
Et j’entends malgré moi,
J’entends mon coeur qui bat, qui bat,
Je ne sais pas pourquoi…

Everybody knows this «Countess’ aria» from Tchaikovsky’s opera The Queen of Spades, however today I found a less known fact that this aria was taken from Richard Coeur-de-lion opera by Belgian/French composer André Ernest Modeste Grétry where it is known as «Laurette’s aria».
