"Belle nuit, ô nuit d'amour" (often referred to as the "Barcarolle") is a piece from The Tales of Hoffmann, Jacques Offenbach's final opera. Originally a duet for soprano and mezzo-soprano, it is considered the most famous barcarolle ever written and "one of the world's most popular melodies." The text, concerning the beauty of the night and of love, is by Jules Barbier.

Clarinet part provided in A and B♭.


The audio accompanying the Scoreflipper version is from a 2011 performance by L'Amore della Musica.
