Scena
La scena sul principio vuota. Albeggia

Coro d'introduzione

DONNE
di dentro
Gli aranci olezzano
Sui verdi margini,
Cantan le allodole
Tra i mirti in fior;
Tempo si mormori
Da ognuno il tenero
Canto che i palpiti
Raddoppia al cor.
Le donne entrano in scena.

UOMINI
di dentro
In mezzo al campo
Tra le spiche d'oro
Giunge il rumor
Delle vostre spole,
Noi stanchi
Riposando dal lavoro
A voi pensiam,
O belle occhi-di-sole.
A voi corriamo
Come vola l'augello
Al suo richiamo.
Gli uomini entrano in scena

DONNE
Cessin le rustiche
Opre: la Vergine
Serena allietasi
Del Salvator;
Tempo si mormori
Da ognuno il tenero
Canto che i palpiti
Raddoppia al cor.

Il coro attraversa la scena ed esce.

English Libretto or Translation:

ONE AND ONLY ACT
A square in the village. In the background right, a church with a door. On the left, the inn and Mother Lucia's house. At first the stage is empty. Dawn is breaking.

Introductory Chorus
Chorus

CHORUS
from within
Ah!

WOMEN
from within
The orange trees lilt he green groves
Scent the air,
The larks sing
Through the flowering myrtles;
Now is the time
For everyone to murmur
The tender song
Which quickens the heart.

The women enter.

MEN
from within
Across the fields
Amid the golden corn
The sound of your shuttles
Reaches us
In our fatigue.
Lightening our labour.
We think of you,
Sweet rays of sunshine.
We hasten to you
As a bird flies
To his mate's call.

The men enter.

WOMEN
Now cease
Your rustic tasks;
The blessed Virgin is gladdened
By the Saviour;
Now is the time
For everyone to murmur
The tender song
Which quickens the heart.

MEN
Across the fields, etc.

WOMEN
The orange trees in the green groves, etc.

The chorus crosses the stage and goes out.
