Third Scene

(A mental hospital in London)
(Tom is with a blind man with a violin, a cripple

On the wall, a straw mattress)

Aria

TOM
Prepare yourselves, ye heroic shades.
Wash you and make you clean.
Anoint your limbs with oil,
put on your wedding garments
and crown your heads with flowers.
Let music strike.
Venus, queen of love,
will visit her unworthy Adonis.
