Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ATTO PRIMO

Villaggio.
In fondo al teatro si scorge il mulino di Teresa: un torrente ne fa girare la ruota.


SCENA PRIMA
All'alzarsi del sipario odonsi da lungi suoni pastorali e voci lontane che gridano: Viva Amina! sono gli abitanti del villaggio che vengono a festeggiare gli sponsali di lei.

CORO
interno
Viva! viva Amina!
La la la...
Evviva Amina!
Evviva ancor!
Ah!
Esce Lisa dall'Osteria, indi Alessio dai colli.

English Libretto or 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.
