(Edgardo! I surrender to you). 
After brutally murdering her prearranged husband in their wedding bed, Lucia imagines she is with her forbidden lover Edgardo, in the Mad Scene of the tragic opera Lucia Di Lammermoor. 
When Edgardo learns of Lucia calling for him, he rushes to her but she has already died, and he takes his own life to be with her.
Il Dulce Suono is the infamous, hearbreakingly beautiful aria from the Mad Scene sung best by Maria Callas (listen here: https://open.spotify.com/track/6UNmJRNp0IKdSOo4F4Uqz7?si=Bn0OtVUbRAuQbjzadFEUQw) and also by the blue lady in the movie The Fifth Element. The whole song, but especially the end, makes my heart bleed out of my chest. It's one of my favorites.
xox Edgardo.
