SCENA II

Curra segue il Marchese, chiude la porta ond'è uscito, e riviene a Leonora abbandonatasi sul seggiolone piangente

CURRA
Temea restasse qui fino a domani.
Si riapre il veron.
Tutto s'appronti, e andiamo.

Toglie dall'armadio un sacco da notte in cui ripone biancherie e vesti.

LEONORA
E si amoroso padre,
avverso fia tanto ai voti miei?
No, no, decidermi non so.

CURRA
Che dite?

LEONORA
Quegli accenti nel cor,
come pugnali scendevanmi. Se ancor restava,
appreso il ver gli avrei . . .

CURRA
smettendo il lavoro
Domani allor nel sangue suo saria Don Alvaro, od a
Siviglia prigioniero, e forse al patibol poi!

LEONORA
Taci.

CURRA
E tutto questo perché ei volle amar chi non l'amava.

English Libretto or Translation:

Recitative and Romanza

Curra follows the Marquis, closes the door after him and comes back to Leonora, who has given way to tears in the armchair.

CURRA
I was afraid he'd stay here till tomorrow!
I'll open the window again.
Let's get everything ready, and go.

She takes from the wardrobe an overnight bag which has been filled with linen and clothes.

LEONORA
Could so loving a father
be so opposed to my wishes?
No, no, I can't make up my mind.

CURRA
bustling about
What are you saying?

LEONORA
Those words pierced my heart
like daggers. Had he stayed longer,
I should have confessed the truth.

CURRA
stopping work
Then tomorrow Don Alvaro would lie
in his own blood,
or in prison in Seville, perhaps
with the scaffold to follow.

LEONORA
Hush!

CURRA
And all this because
he loved someone who didn't love him.
