La Sonnambula Libretto
English Translation

ACT ONE

Village.
At the end of the theater you can see Teresa's mill: a stream makes the wheel spin.

FIRST SCENE
At the rising of the curtain, I hear from far off pastoral sounds and distant voices shouting: Viva Amina! they are the villagers who come to celebrate her nuptials.

CHOIR
indoor
Viva! live Amina!
La la la ...
Hurray Amina!
Long live again!
Ah!
Lisa leaves the Osteria, then Alessio from the hills.

LISA
Everything is joy, everything is party ...
Sol is not happy for me,
And out of torment
I am forced to simulate.
O beltade to me fatesta,
What is my treasure
While I suffer while I am dying,
Even if you love to stroke!

CHOIR
Viva Amina!
Long live!

LISA
Everything is party ...
Sol for me ah! there is not ...
Everything is joy etc.

CHOIR
Viva Amina! ...
La la la ... etc.

ALESSIO
Lisa! Lisa! ...

LISA
to leave
Oh the importun!

Villani and Villanelle descend from the hills, all dressed up for partying, with homemade tools and flower baskets. They come to the floor.

ALESSIO
Ah! you flee me! ...

LISA
I flee everyone.

ALESSIO
Ah! not always, or crooked,
You will flee from me like this.
For you too, or Lisa beautiful,
The wedding day will come.

During the conversation between Lisa and Alessio, the sounds became closer, and the cheers were stronger.


SECOND SCENE

ALESSIO
Viva Amina! live still!

LISA
peeved
(It too!
Oh spite! )

ALESSIO
Here deployed ... more from below ...

LISA
(Ah, anger devours me! ...)

ALESSIO and CORO
The song prepared
Sound of here can be.

LISA
(Every spun is truncated to me:
The rival triumphed.)

ALESSIO and CORO
In Elvezia you do not have pink
Fresh and dear to the par d'Amina:
It's a morning star,
All light, all of love.
But modest, but backward,
How vague, how beautiful it is:
Little girl is innocent,
It is the emblem of candor.

LISA
(Ah, for me, happy songs
Destined one day I believed:
Raw love, which is for her
I have no heart to bear.)

ALESSIO
approaching Lisa
(My dear, so happy songs
Resounding could be for us,
If you like pity, you want
Listen to my prayers.)

CHOIR
Long live!
Ah ...
You happy and ventured
More than a prence and a sovereign,
Bel garzon, that his hand
You have come to deserve.
Such treasure has given you love
Of beauty and virtue
What the world closes
That no king can buy.
He is innocent etc.
Viva!


SCENE THIRD
Amina, Teresa and sayings.

AMINA
Dear companions, and you,
Tender friends, that to my joy
So much you take, oh how sweet
Scendon d'Amina at the core
The songs that inspire your love!

CHOIR
Live happy! and this
The communal vote, or Amina.

AMINA
To you, beloved,
Tender mother, who so happy day
Me orphanella you kept yourself, to you favelli
This, from the heart more than from the express eyelash,
Sweet cry of joy, and this embrace.
with a soft accent
Companions ... cute friends ...
Ah! mother ... ah! what a joy!
As for me serene
Today was born again!
As the terren flourished
More beautiful and pleasant!
Never more happy appearance
Nature did not shine;
Amor colored her
Of my beloved.

CHOIR
Always, or happy Amina,
Always for you like that
Infiori the sky the day
What gives you ...

AMINA
hugs Teresa, and taking her hand, he brings her close to the core
Over the sen the man poses me,
Palpitar, you can hear it:
He is the heart that his content
He has no strength to support him.

TERESA and CORO
Your adventurous fate
The maternal heart rejoices:
It could not be super-favored
Reseat it to equal pleasure.

ALESSIO
Me most of all, or Amina,
I congratulate you. I prepared the party,
I made the song; I gathered
The players are near the villages.

AMINA
And grateful to your favors,
Good Alessio, it's me.
I hope soon
Return them all, then as a bridegroom
You of Lisa will be, if, as it is voice,
It is willing to make you happy.

ALESSIO
Do you hear it, or Lisa?

LISA
No, it will not be so soon.

ALESSIO
You are cruel!

TERESA
And why?

LISA
The ignorant?
I am dreaming of loves;
I like my freedom.

AMINA
Ah! you do not know
How much happiness is it?
In a tender love.

LISA
Often love
It has a gentle beginning and a bitter end.

TERESA
See the hypocrisy!

CHOIR
The Notary comes.


FOURTH SCENE
The Notaro and sayings.

AMINA
The Notaro? And Elvino
Is not it still present?

Notaro
A few steps
I preceded him; at the head of the forest
I looked at him from afar.

CHOIR
There he is .

AMINA
Dear Elvino! alfin you come.


SCENE FIFTH
Elvino and sayings.

ELVINO
Forgive me, my beloved,
The short delay. On this solemn day
To implore, I went to our knots
Of an angel the favor: prostrate to the marble
My mother's extinct! Oh! bless
My bride! I told her. She owns
All your virtues; she is happy
Make your child what you would make the father.
Ah! I hope so, my dear, the mother heard me.

AMINA
Oh! auspicious wish!

ALL
It is van
It does not.

ELVINO
Be you all, or friends,
To the present contract.
The Notaro is ready to draw up the contract.

Notaro
Elvin, what do you bring
To your bride as a gift?

ELVINO
My farms,
My house, my name,
Every good that I possess.

Notaro
And Amina? ...

AMINA
The only one.

ELVINO
Ah! everything is the core!
While the mother signs, and with it the witnesses, Elvino presents the ring to Amina.

Take: the anel I give you
What a day it went to the altar
The alma blessed and dear
Which arrests to our love.
You are such a gift
How sacred it was to her;
Both of your votes and mine
Fido custodian each.

CHOIR
Written in the sky already,
As in your cor.

ELVINO
Spouses or we are.

AMINA
Newlyweds! ...
Oh! tender word!

ELVINO
Dear! in the sen you pose
He gives her a bunch.
This violet violet.

AMINA
Pure, innocent flower!

ELVINO
And you remind me of you.

AMINA
Ah! he does not have the core of it.

AMINA and ELVINO
Dear to!
From the day that united
Our choirs a God,
With you was mine,
Your with me remained.

TERESA, ALESSIO and CORO
Writings in the sky etc.

AMINA
Ah! I would like to find words
To explain how I love you!
But the voice, oh my darling,
He does not answer my thoughts.

ELVINO
Everything, ah! all at this moment
Speak to me of the fire ond'ardi:
I read it in your looks,
In your lusinghier rice!
Alma mine in your semblant
He sees your sculpted,
And she flies, she is kidnapped in her
Of sweetness and of pleasure!

TERESA, ALESSIO and CORO
Ah! so in your eyes
Core a core each one shows:
Read each law now
One in the other is a sol pensier.

AMINA
Ah! my good! Spiegar nol so.

LISA
(Spite in repressed sen
I'm no longer worth supporting.)

ELVINO
Do you love me?

AMINA
Ah! My voice...

ELVINO
My dear good! ...

AMINA
Ah does not answer my thoughts.
Ah! I would like to find etc.

ELVINO
Tomorrow, just update,
We will go to the temple and our hymen
It will be accomplished by a more holy rite.
I hate lash and trampling horses.
What a noise!

CHOIR
hastening
Horses!

AMINA
A stranger.


SCENE SESTA
Rodolfo and two postiglioni.

RODOLFO
from the bottom
How boring and long
The walk seemed to me!
It is advancing.
Still distant
From the castel we are siam?

LISA
Three miles, and arrived
You will not be far from a dark night,
So much alpine is the way. Until tomorrow
Here I will suggest you.

RODOLFO
And I wish it.
Do you have a hotel at the village?

LISA
Here is mine.

RODOLFO
examining the tavern
What?

CHOIR
That one.

RODOLFO
Ah! I know him.

LISA
You, sir?

AMINA, LISA, TERESA, ELVINO and CORO
(Who is he?)

RODOLFO
The mill ... the source ... the forest ...
And near the farm! ...

(I see you, or pleasant places,
In which you are happy, in which you are happy
Yes quiet the days passed
Of the first youth!
Dear Places, I found you,
But those days I can not find it anymore!)

AMINA, LISA, TERESA, ELVINO and CORO
(Of the village he is very conscious:
When was this ever there?)

RODOLFO
I see you etc.
But among you, if I do not deceive myself,
No party takes place today.

CHOIR
Fausto wedding here they do.

RODOLFO
And the bride? is that?
hinting Lisa

CHOIR
pointing to Amina
It's this one.

RODOLFO
It is kind, graceful ...
I'll show you. Oh! ... the vague face! ...
You do not know with those beautiful eyes
How sweet the heart touches me,
What references to my thoughts
Adorable beauty.
It was given, what are you,
On the morning of age.

LISA
(She is alone dreamed!)

ELVINO
(From those sayings she is flattered!)

CHOIR
(They are courteous, they are gallant
The inhabitants of the city.)

RODOLFO
to himself
It was born! ... in the morning ... of age! ...
in Amina
I'll show you! Ah, what a face!
You do not know etc.

ELVINO
Country confidence
Do you have you, sir?

RODOLFO
I was young
With Mr. of the castle.

TERESA
Oh! the good sir!
He died four hours!

RODOLFO
And I have pain!
He loved me as a son ...

TERESA
And a son he had; but from the castle
The young man disappeared one day or more
The afflicted father had it.

RODOLFO
To his relatives
New, I go back and sure. He lives.

LISA
And when
Will he return to his native land?

CHOIR
Each craves it.

RODOLFO
You will see it one day.
I hate the sound of the bagpipes that reduce the herds to the fold.

TERESA
But ... the sun sets: it's worth it
Prepare to leave.

AMINA, LISA, ELVINO and CORO
Partir? ...
Teresa makes everyone approach her.

TERESA
with great mystery
You know
That the hour is approaching in which it is shown
The terrible ghost.

CHOIR
It's true! it's true!

RODOLFO
What ghost?

AMINA, LISA, TERESA, ELVINO and CORO
It's a mistery
An object of horror!

RODOLFO
Humor!

TERESA and CORO
What are you saying?
If you knew, sir ...

RODOLFO
Narrate.

CHOIR
Hear.
A gloomy sky, a dark night,
In the faint ray of uncertain moon,
At the gloomy sound of distant tuon
From the hill to the plain a shadow appears.
In white wrapped falling sheet,
With the dissolved crin, with burning eye,
What dense fog from the wind is moving,
Advance, big, immense par.

RODOLFO
He paints it, shows it to you
Your blind credulity.

AMINA and TERESA
Ah! it is not a fole, it is not fear:
Each saw her: it is truth.

ELVINO
In truth!

CHOIR
Wherever he proceeds slowly,
Silence reigns in fright;
Do not breathe, do not move the stem;
Almost by frost the river is going.
The dogs squatting themselves,
They lower their eyes, they do not bark.
Only stretch taken from the bottom of the valley
The Stry unclean screaming goes.

AMINA, LISA, TERESA, ELVINO and RODOLFO
Credulity.

CHOIR
The dogs themselves etc.

RODOLFO
I would like to see you, or sooner or later,
I would like to see her, find out what she does.

LISA, TERESA, AMINA and ELVINO
Heaven watch you!
Saria overrides temerity.

RODOLFO
That's enough. Each
Keep to his opinion. Season will come
Which of such larvae
I purged the village.

TERESA
Heaven wants it!
This, sir, is universal desìo.

RODOLFO
But of my journey
I would like to rest, if mel concedes
My beautiful hotelier.

AMINA, LISA, TERESA, ELVINO, ALESSIO and CORO
Good rest, mister ... Happy night.

RODOLFO
Goodbye, gentle girl;
Until tomorrow, goodbye ... I love your spouse
How to love you I would know.

ELVINO
with spite
Nobody wins me
In professing them love ...

RODOLFO
Happy you have the core!

He starts with Lisa; the choir disperses.


SEVENT SCENE
Elvino and Amina.

AMINA
Elvino! ... And you leave me
Without a tender goodbye?

ELVINO
with irony
From the foreigner
You had him well.

AMINA
It is ver: moved
In leaving me and it seemed. From that semblant
Excellent cor traspare ...

ELVINO
And cor d'amante.

AMINA
Do you speak the truth or are you joking? ...
with a trembling voice
What is the doubt in you?

ELVINO
You get in vain.
He shakes your hand,
He caressed you ...

AMINA
Ebben ...

ELVINO
grind
They were not there, and every word of it
Your friends met her eyes.

AMINA
with penalty
Ungrateful! and dir mel can you? ...
Eyes I have neither core
Fuor that for you. Did not I swear my faith?
I do not have your ring?

ELVINO
Yup..

AMINA
Do not you love me?
My well is not you?

ELVINO
Yes but...

AMINA
Continue.
Would you be jealous?

ELVINO
Ah! yes I am...

AMINA
Whose?

ELVINO
Of all.

AMINA
Unfair cor!

ELVINO
Pardon! I'm jealous of the wandering zephyr
Who jokes you with horsehair, with the veil;
Until the sun that aims at you from the sky,
Finish the mirror that makes you.

AMINA
Son, my good, of the zephyr lover,
Because to it your name I trust;
I love the sol 'because I am holding the divide,
I love the river, because the wave gives you.

ELVINO
Ah! forgive the suspect for love!

AMINA
Ah! forever to get rid of you.

ELVINO
Yes for ever.

AMINA
And the promise?

ELVINO
The promise.

AMINA
No more doubts?

ELVINO
No more doubts.

AMINA
Fears never again?

ELVINO
Fears never again.

AMINA and ELVINO
Ah !!! My good!
Ah! constant in your / my breast
Both faith and love validate!
And semblant in the early morning
For us always life will be.
My good!
And semblant etc.
They pull away.

AMINA
always with growing tenderness
My dear, goodbye!

ELVINO
My dear, goodbye!
They are coming closer.
He thinks of me.

AMINA
And you still.

AMINA and ELVINO
hugging
Even in sleep my heart will see you.
Goodbye! Goodbye!

They leave

SCENE EIGHT
Room in the tavern. In front of a window: on one side entrance door: on the other a toilet. Have a sofa and a table.
Rodolfo, then Lisa.

RODOLFO
Davver, I do not mind
Having stopped here: the place is pleasant,
Excellent air, polite men,
Women are beautiful beyond anything.
That young bride
It's very graceful ... And that hostess?
It's a bit 'backward, but I like it too.
Here it is: forward, forward,
My beautiful hotelier.

LISA
To inform me
It came to me if the apartment
It is a genius to Mr. Conte.

RODOLFO
To Mr. Conte!
(Heck, I'm known!)

LISA
forgive,
But the Mayor ascertains it, and makes you party
All the village aduna.
I thank luck
Which to me has granted before
The favor of offering you my respect.

RODOLFO
In the beautiful I like another affection.
And you're beautiful, or Lisa,
Really beautiful...

LISA
Oh! Mr. Conte jokes.

RODOLFO
No, no ischerzo: and these clever little eyes
How many choirs were surprised and charmed?

LISA
No, I do not know in love so far.

RODOLFO
You lie, or crooked.
I know ...

LISA
approaching
And it's?...

RODOLFO
If that was me,
What would you say, o cute?

LISA
I ... what would I say? ...
Mr. ... I would not believe it.
In me it is not a beauty worthy of so much ...
One merit I have only:
That of a sincere heart.

RODOLFO
And this is a lot
Strepito to the window.
But what noise do I listen to?

LISA
(Mal come to the opportunity!)

RODOLFO
Where did you come from?

LISA
That I do not see anyone.
He flees and in his haste he loses his handkerchief; Rodolfo collects it and throws it on the sofa.


NONA SCENE
The window opens. Amina appears: she is covered in a simple white dress. She sleeps: she is a sleepwalker; and he slowly advances in the middle of the room.

RODOLFO
What's wrong? Saria this
The phantom night? Ah! I'm not wrong ...
This is the villanella
Which, in my eyes, seemed so beautiful.

AMINA
Elvino! ... Elvino! ...

RODOLFO
He is sleeping.

AMINA
You do not answer?

RODOLFO
It is sleepwalking.

AMINA
with playful smile
Jealous
Would you still be a foreigner? Ah talk! ...
Are you jealous?

RODOLFO
Would you like to wake her up?

AMINA
with penalty
Ungrateful! I address you ...
I love you alone, you know ...

RODOLFO
Dèstisi.

AMINA
tender
Take...
The man I'm lying ... a kiss you print in it,
Pledge of peace.

RODOLFO
Ah! you do not deserve ... Some
To disturb me does not come at that moment.
Rodolfo goes to close the window.

LISA
from the toilet
Amina! ... O traitor!
Part not seen. - Amina's appearance is pleased.

RODOLFO
running to Amina, he stops
Oh heaven! ... what am I trying?

AMINA
dreams of the moment of the ceremony
Oh how pleased the people
Who at the temple escorts it!

RODOLFO
In that dream still that soul
It is in his well-absorbed good.

AMINA
Ardon the sacred tents.

RODOLFO
It is believed at the altar!

AMINA
Oh my mother, m'aïta;
The pie does not support me!

RODOLFO
No, you will not be betrayed,
Alma gentil, from me.

AMINA
Oh my mother, etc.

RODOLFO
No, no, from me etc.
Amina dreams that the sacred minister asks her the oath of love.
Amina raises her right hand.

AMINA
Heaven, I swear to my husband
Eternal faith and love!

RODOLFO
Innocent and pure lily,
Keep your candor!

AMINA
Elvino! ... alfin you're mine!

RODOLFO
Fuggasi.

AMINA
Elvino! ... already yours is me.

RODOLFO
Ah, if I stay more, I feel
My virtue is missing.

AMINA
Hug me. Oh! happy
That can not be explained!
Elvino! ... Hug me.
Alfin you're mine.
Rodolfo goes out of the door: he hears people's noise; she leaves for the window from which Amina has come, and closes it. She, always sleeping, lies down on the sofa.


SCENE DECIMA
Peasants of both sexes, Sindaci and Alessio.

ALESSIO and CORO
inside
Look. The door is open.
Without warning.
Everything is silent: and he certainly sleeps.
Do we destit it, or do we sear it?
Why not? it takes courage.
Introduce yourself, or get out of here.
Of the village treat
Discontent and it will not be.
They are coming closer.
Avanziam. Ve 've'! targeted,
He went to sleep there.
Appressiam.
They notice Amina, and they come back.
Ah! stops:
It is not, it is not, no.
To the dress, to the figure,
It's a woman ... woman, yes.
repressing laughter
The adventure is bizarre.
A woman!
How did he enter? what's up here?


EIGHTEEN SCENE
Teresa, Elvino, Lisa and sayings.

ELVINO
inside
And lie.

CHOIR
Some approaches.

LISA
add to Amina
Mira and believe in your eyes.

ELVINO
Sky! Amina!

TERESA and CORO
Amina! she!

AMINA
awaking
Where am I? ... who are you?
seeing Elvino
Ah! my good!
He runs to him.

ELVINO
repulsing
It goes'! traitor! ...

AMINA
I!!...

ELVINO
It moves you away.

AMINA
Oh! me unhappy!
What did I ever do?

ELVINO
And still you ask? ...

ALESSIO and CORO
Where you are, you can see it.

AMINA
Here! ... why? ... who pushed me? ...

ELVINO
with concentrated anger
Your core ingannator.

AMINA
he throws himself into his mother's arms. - Teresa covers her face with her hands
Mother! Oh! mother!

LISA and CORO
Ah! you are sure!

ELVINO
It goes'! perjured! ...

AMINA
Oh! me unhappy! What did I ever do?
Oh my pain!
Of a thought and an accent
Rea are not, nor was it ever.
Ah! if you do not have faith in me,
Mal answer to so much love.

ELVINO
Want the sky that the duol I feel
You must never try!
Ah! tel monsters, I loved you
This cry of my heart.

AMINA
Ah mel believe, ah! rea are not etc.

TERESA
Deh! the heard!
The rigor exceeds omai.

ALESSIO and CORO
Your black betrayal
It is clear and clear.
In which cor trust more ever,
If that cor was mentitor?

Meanwhile, Teresa picked up Lisa's handkerchief on the sofa, and placed it on Amina's neck.

ELVINO
No more wedding.

ALESSIO and CORO
No more wedding.

ELVINO
Sorry, I abandon you ...

AMINA
Oh! raw instant!
Deh! m'udite! I rea are not.

ELVINO
Take away your presence from me:
Your voice hurts me.

AMINA
Nume friend to innocence,
Unveil the truth.

AMINA and ELVINO
It is not this, ungrateful heart,
This is not the reward
That I hope for so much love,
I waited for so much faith ...
Ah! you took me away in a moment
Every happy thing ...
Ah! painful remembrance
Only you will remain.

LISA, ALESSIO and CORO
No more wedding, no longer hymen:
Disdain, infamous to her.
Of us all to eternal hatred,
To the rossor the rea will live.

TERESA
Ah! if some does not support you,
If you do not favor it,
Unfaired, the maternal sen
Closed to you will not remain.

Everyone comes out threatening Amina: she falls into Teresa's arms.



SECOND ACT

Ombrosa Valletta between the village and the castle.

FIRST SCENE
Chorus of Peasants and Peasants.

CHOIR
Here the forest is thicker and shady.
Here we lay near the stream.
Long still, steep, stony
It is the way that leads to the castle.
Always time to arrive we will have,
The gentleman rises from the bed.
Riflettiam! When we arrive we will be,
What to say to touch his heart? ...
Excellence! ... say bravely ...
Signor Conte ... poor Amina
The honor of the village was already
The desi of each neighboring villa,
Honor was given to each villa.
Suddenly it is found dormant
In the room you picked up ...
Defend her, she is innocent,
Help her, she failed.
To these sayings, on such matters ...
Ei shows himself moved, convinced:
We pray, we insist reverent ...
He entrusts us, and promises, we have won ...
Consulates to the village we come back:
In two steps, in two jumps we are here.
At the test! ... to be good! let's start ...
The protected shop will be.
They leave.


SECOND SCENE
Amina and Teresa.

AMINA
Reggimi, or good mother; in my support
You alone remain.

TERESA
Do it core. The Count
Your tears will be moved.
Here we go.

AMINA
Ah! no, I can not:
I miss the heart and the pie. You see? Siam us
At the poder d'Elvino. Oh! How many times
We sat together with these beech trees in the shade,
To the murmur of the river! The aura that blows
Our oaths resound even ...
The cruel one bade him! and he abandons me!

TERESA
Esser not puote, you believe it,
You no longer love me. Afflicted is perhaps also,
Afflicted to you ... Miralo: and he comes
Lonely and pensive ...

AMINA
You ascend to me ... I will not dare.


SCENE THIRD
Elvino, and said aloof.

AMINA
See, oh mother ... she is afflicted and sad ...
Maybe ... ah! perhaps he loves me again.

ELVINO
Everything is dissolved:
More for me it does not comfort you.
My heart is forever dead
To joy and to love.

AMINA
he approaches Elvino
I love myself, Elvino ...

ELVINO
he shakes
You ... and so? ...

AMINA
Oh, do you calm ...

ELVINO
It goes'! perjured!

AMINA
Believe...
No fault in me is not.

ELVINO
You took away all my comfort.

AMINA
I'm innocent. I swear:
No fault in me is not.

ELVINO
Go ... ungrateful!
bitterly
Pasci looks at it and satisfies the alma
Of the excess of my evils:
The saddest of mortals
I am, or raw, and I am for you.

ITEMS
Long live the Count!

ELVINO
to exit
The Count!

AMINA
Ah! stopping you.

ELVINO
No: flee.

AMINA
For pietade!


FOURTH SCENE
Chorus and sayings.

ELVINO
It goes'! let me.

CHOIR
Good new!
The Count says that she is honest,
Which is innocent, and to us already move.

ELVINO
He! Oh! anger!

AMINA, TERESA and CORO
Ah! settle the wrath ...

ELVINO
My most frenzy does not have.
He takes the ring off.

AMINA
Ah! my ring ... oh! mother!...
Teresa supports Amina almost expiring.

CHOIR
to Elvino
Mira! ... At such a blow he will die. Heartless!

ELVINO
he introduces himself to Amina, deeply moved
Ah! because I can not hate you,
Infedel, as I would like!
Ah! you are not yet completely
Canceled by my cor.
May another, ah! can love you
What did I love this unhappy!
Another vote, or traitor,
Do not be afraid of my pain.

CHOIR
Ah! cruel, before leaving her,
See the Count, to the Count speaks.
And to make is able
To you peace, to you the honor.

Elvino leaves in despair. - Teresa takes Amina to another place.

SCENE FIFTH
Village as in the first Act.
At the end of the theater you can see Teresa's mill: a stream makes the wheel spin.
Lisa followed by Alessio.

LISA
Leave me: understand
You really should be boring.

ALESSIO
Do not be afraid of a spouse
Elvin is you. Of the honesty of Amina
He will be convinced shortly, and then ...

LISA
So
You will be more regretful to me.

ALESSIO
Deh! Lisa, for pity ... change advice,
Do not treat me like that. What to do with a man
What marries you only out of spite?

LISA
It's more expensive than a fool, I told you so.

ALESSIO
No, you will not marry him. I'll put it upside down
The whole village: I will invoke the Count
The authority, before I stand in peace
To be mocked in this guise.

CHOIR
inside
Lisa is the bride.

LISA and ALESSIO
That?...

CHOIR
inside
The bride is Lisa.

We form a heaven of love.
