Synopsis

ACT I.
Naples, late 1700s. Early morning. Don Alfonso, a cynical old bachelor, debates women's constancy with Ferrando and Guglielmo, young officers who insist their sweethearts -- the sisters Dorabella and Fiordiligi -- are faithful. Alfonso bets that if they give him one day and do everything he asks, he will prove the sisters are like all other women -- fickle.
Fiordiligi and Dorabella are comparing pictures of their boyfriends when Alfonso pays a visit, bringing news that Guglielmo and Ferrando have been ordered away with their regiment. The two men appear, and the sisters, overwhelmed with grief, bid them farewell. Alfonso is delighted with his plot and feels certain of winning his wager.
The chambermaid, Despina, consoles her mistresses and advises them to forget their old lovers with the help of new ones. The girls, scandalized by Despina's depiction of men as swaggering liars, depart. Alfonso convinces Despina to help him introduce new suitors into the sisters' favor, then brings in exotically attired "Albanians" -- Ferrando and Guglielmo in disguise. Fiordiligi and Dorabella don't warm to the newcomers at all, Fiordiligi likening her constancy to a rock in a storm, and they take their leave again. The men, confident of winning their bet, are thrilled, and Ferrando sings amorously of his steadfast sweetheart, but Alfonso reminds him the day is not yet over.
The sisters have retreated to a garden. Alfonso brings in the "Albanians," who claim to have taken poison. The women call Despina, who urges them to care for the men while she fetches a doctor. She returns disguised as the doctor, pretends to draw off the poison with a magnet, then watches with Alfonso as Fiordiligi and Dorabella waver under renewed protestations of love.

ACT II.
In the afternoon, Despina urges Fiordiligi and Dorabella to choose their favorite, and each picks the other's suitor, according to Alfonso's plan. After the "Albanians" serenade the sisters, Despina and Alfonso give lessons in courting and leave the young people together. Guglielmo, courting Dorabella, succeeds in replacing her portrait of Ferrando with a new charm. Ferrando has no such luck with Fiordiligi, who still thinks guiltily of Guglielmo. Comparing notes later, Ferrando is furious over Dorabella's betrayal, Guglielmo smug about Fiordiligi's steadfastness. But Alfonso is not finished yet. Under Despina's supervision, Dorabella tries to persuade Fiordiligi to give in, but Fiordiligi decides that she and Dorabella must join their lovers at the front. Ferrando appears, however, and wins her over. Now Guglielmo is furious, but the officers still owe Alfonso time: as night falls he plans a double wedding.
The couples are married by a "notary" -- again Despina in disguise. As they sign the contracts, the women hear a military march that heralds the return of their original suitors. They force the "Albanians" into hiding and try to compose themselves for Ferrando and Guglielmo, who shed their disguises and enter, dressed as soldiers. Confessions are made by the sisters, and forgiveness is begged. Alfonso bids the lovers learn their lesson, and with a hymn to reason and enlightenment, the day comes to a close.

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

N. 20 - Duetto

DORABELLA
Prenderò quel brunettino,
Che più lepido mi par.

FIORDILIGI
Ed intanto io col biondino
Vo' un po' ridere e burlar.

DORABELLA
Scherzosetta ai dolci detti
Io di quel risponderò.

FIORDILIGI
Sospirando i sospiretti
Io dell'altro imiterò.

DORABELLA
Mi dirà: «Ben mio, mi moro».

FIORDILIGI
Mi dirà: «Mio bel tesoro».

FIORDILIGI E DORABELLA
Ed intanto che diletto,
Che spassetto io proverò!

partono e s'incontrano in Don Alfonso

English Libretto or Translation:

No. 20 - Duet

DORABELLA
I'll take the dark one,
Who seems to me more fun.

FIORDILIGI
And meantime I'll laugh
And joke a bit with the fair one.

DORABELLA
Playfully I'll answer
His sweet words.

FIORDILIGI
Sighing, I'll imitate
The other's sighs.

DORABELLA
He'll say to me:
My love, I'm dying!

FIORDILIGI
He'll say to me:
My dearest treasure!

FIORDILIGI AND DORABELLA
And meanwhile
What sport and pleasure
I shall have!
