SCENA SETTIMA
Don Alfonso solo

Recitativo

DON ALFONSO
Non son cattivo comico! va bene...
Al concertato loco i due campioni
Di Ciprigna e di Marte
Mi staranno attendendo: or senza indugio
Raggiungerli conviene. Quante smorfie,
Quante buffonerie!
Tanto meglio per me...
Cadran più facilmente:
Questa razza di gente è la più presta
A cangiarsi d'umore. Oh, poverini!
Per femmina giocar cento zecchini?

«Nel mare solca e nell'arena semina
E il vago vento spera in rete accogliere
Chi fonda sue speranze in cor di femmina.»

English Libretto or Translation:


SEVENTH SCENE

Recitative

DON ALFONSO
I'm not a bad actor! Now then;
The two champions
Of Venus and Mars
Await me at the appointed place;
I must join them without delay.
What grimaces, what affectations!
All the better for me,
They'll fall more easily;
People of that kind are the first
To change their minds. Poor fools,
To wager a hundred sequins on a woman!
"He who builds his hopes
On a woman's heart
Ploughs the sea
And sows on sand
And hopes to snare
The wild wind in a net".
