ALFREDO
Annina, donde vieni?

ANNINA
Da Parigi.

ALFREDO
Chi tel commise?

ANNINA
Fu la mia signora.

ALFREDO
Perché?

ANNINA
Per alienar cavalli, cocchi,
E quanto ancor possiede.

ALFREDO
Che mai sento!

ANNINA
Lo spendìo è grande a viver qui solinghi

ALFREDO
E tacevi?

ANNINA
Mi fu il silenzio imposto.

ALFREDO
Imposto! or v'abbisogna?

ANNINA
Mille luigi.

ALFREDO
Or vanne andrò a Parigi.
Questo colloquio ignori la signora.
Il tutto valgo a riparare ancora.

Annina parte

English Libretto or Translation:

Annina enters in great agitation, dressed for travelling.

ALFREDO
Annina, where have you been?

ANNINA
To Paris.

ALFREDO
Who sent you?

ANNINA
My mistress.

ALFREDO
Why?

ANNINA
To sell the horses and carriages
And all her other things.

ALFREDO
What do you mean?

ANNINA
It's very costly living here on our own.

ALFREDO
But why didn't you tell me?

ANNINA
She said I mustn't.

ALFREDO
Mustn't? How much do we need?

ANNINA
A thousand louis.

ALFREDO
All right, you may go ..
I'm going to Paris, myself.
Don't tell your mistress that you talked to me;
There's still time to put things straight.
Go! Go!

Annina goes out.
