GASTONE
Si presenta sulla porta di mezzo
Ebben? che diavol fate?

VIOLETTA
Si foleggiava

GASTONE
Ah! ah! sta ben restate.
Rientra

VIOLETTA
ad Alfredo
Amor dunque non più
Vi garba il patto?

ALFREDO
Io v'obbedisco. Parto
per andarsene

VIOLETTA
A tal giungeste?
Si toglie un fiore dal seno
Prendete questo fiore.

ALFREDO
Perché?

VIOLETTA
Per riportarlo

ALFREDO
tornando
Quando?

VIOLETTA
Quando
Sarà appassito.

ALFREDO
O ciel! domani

VIOLETTA
Ebben,
Domani.

ALFREDO
Prende con trasporto il fiore
Io son felice!

VIOLETTA
D'amarmi dite ancora?

ALFREDO
per partire
Oh, quanto v'amo!

VIOLETTA
Partite?

ALFREDO
tornando a lei baciandole la mano
Parto.

VIOLETTA
Addio.

ALFREDO
Di più non bramo.

Esce

English Libretto or Translation:

GASTON
appearing in the centre doorway
Well now? What the devil are you up to?

VIOLETTA
We're talking nonsense.

GASTON
Ha, ha! Splendid! Go on!

VIOLETTA
to Alfredo
So no more about love.
Is that a promise?

ALFREDO
I'll do as you say. I'll go.

He turns away.

VIOLETTA
So it's come to that already?
She takes a flower from her corsage.
Take this flower.

ALFREDO
Why?

VIOLETTA
So that you can bring it back to me.

ALFREDO
turning back
When?

VIOLETTA
When it's withered.

ALFREDO
You mean ... tomorrow?

VIOLETTA
Very well, tomorrow.

ALFREDO
rapturously taking the flower
I'm happy ...
Oh, so happy!

VIOLETTA
Do you still say you love me?

ALFREDO
about to go
How much, how much I love you!
I'm happy ... oh, so happy!

VIOLETTA
You're going?

ALFREDO
coming back to kiss her hand
I'll go now.

VIOLETTA
Good?bye, then.

ALFREDO
I ask for nothing more.
Good?bye!
