VIOLETTA
Or imponete.

GERMONT
Non amarlo ditegli.

VIOLETTA
Nol crederà.

GERMONT
Partite.

VIOLETTA
Seguirammi.

GERMONT
Allor...

VIOLETTA
Qual figlia m'abbracciate forte
Così sarò.
S'abbracciano
Tra breve ei vi fia reso,
Ma afflitto oltre ogni dire. A suo conforto
Di colà volerete.

Indicandogli il giardino, va per scrivere

GERMONT
Che pensate?

VIOLETTA
Sapendol, v'opporreste al pensier mio.

GERMONT
Generosa! e per voi che far poss'io?

English Libretto or Translation:

VIOLETTA
Tell me what I must do.

GERMONT
Say you don't love him.

VIOLETTA
He won't believe me.

GERMONT
Then leave him.

VIOLETTA
He would follow me.

GERMONT
Then ...

VIOLETTA
As your daughter now embrace me,
So you may give me strength.
embracing Germont
Soon he will be restored to you,
But more unhappy than words can tell.
You must be there
To comfort him.

She indicates the garden.
She goes to the writing-table.


GERMONT
What are you doing?

VIOLETTA
If I told you,
You would oppose me.

GERMONT
You are generous indeed!
And what can I do for you?
What can I do for you who are so generous?
