La Donna È Mobile Women Are Fickle Sung by the tenor,Luciano Pavarotti
This aria is from the opera Rigoletto by composer Giuseppe Verdi.

Rigoletto is a court jester. The opera is named after him. Rigoletto's job is to make everyone laugh at the court of ilDuca di Mantova - the Duke of Mantua.
The Duke is selfish and thinks that he can do and have anything that he wants! He also thinks that it is very easy to make all women fall in love with him, including Rigoletto's daughter! He is just so vain.
The Duke sings this ariato express his opinion that females are unreliable and false!
La donna è mobile Women are fickle Qual piuma al vento Like a feather in the wind Muta d'accento e di pensier'. Always changing what they say and think.
