Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Un suono di cornamusa si fa sentire all'interno; tutti si precipitano verso la sinistra, guardando fra le quinte.

MONELLI
gridando
I zampognari!

CONTADINI e CONTADINE
I zampognari!
Verso la chiesa vanno i compari.
Le campane suonano a vespero da lontano.
Essi accompagnano la comitiva
che a coppie al vespero sen va giuliva.
Le campane... Ah! Andiam.
La campana ci appella al Signore!

CANIO
Ma poi... ricordatevi!
A ventitré ore!

English Libretto or Translation:

Canio kisses Nedda on the forehead. A bagpipe is heard offstage: all rush to the left, looking into the wings.

CHILDREN AND WOMEN
shouting
The bagpipers! … The bagpipers! …

MEN
Our friends are going towards the church.
They are accompanying the procession
which is gaily going
in couples to vespers.

In the distance, bells sound for vespers.

WOMEN
Let us go. The church bell
calls us to service.

CANIO
Yes, but remember!
At eleven tonight!
