ACT ONE

SCENE I
Nice village. On one side the modest house of Miller, on the other, a rustic temple: in the distance, and across the trees, the tops of Walter's castle.
A very clear spring dawn is on the horizon: the villagers flock to celebrate the Christmas day of Luisa. Laura is one of them.

LAURA, PEASANTS
It awakens you, Luisa, queen of the choir;
the mountains already laps a rice of light:
one day so happy together with the dawn
here sweet amistade leads you to it:
graceful is this dawn spring in April,
but how your face, graceful no, is not:
it is pure, sweet this kind aura,
even if it is less suave, men are pure than you.


SCENE II
Luisa, Miller and Detti

MILLER
Here is my daughter.

LUISA
Or dear friends!

PEASANTS
Heaven is good for you.

LAURA
In short
to invoke him andrem united to the temple.

MILLER
Your affection from my eyelashes expresses
tears of tenderness ...
At the paternal heart it is sacred
the day that comes up .... it gave me Luisa!

LUISA
(Nor does it come yet!
He has no joy for me!)

MILLER
Daughter, and love, just awake in you,
yes lives flames already spreads!
Oh! badly it is not contending lent love!
Of the new Mr. here in the Court
unknown to all is this Carlo.
I fear!

LUISA
Do not fear:
more noble spirit,
alma warmer
of virtue he never dressed undressed mortal.
I loved him, I loved him.
I saw him, and the first palpitation
the heart felt of love;
he saw me just, and the core
he leaped from my faithful.
Here they recognized each other
our alme in meeting again
formed to love each other
God had them in heaven!

LAURA, PEASANTS
presenting them all, first the women, then the men, a bunch of flowers
Luisa, a naive pledge
of the amistade accetra.

LUISA
Grata is this alma,
or keep companions!
seeing a young hunter, who among the others also offers her flowers
Ah!


SCENE III
Rodolfo and Detti

RODOLFO
My beloved!

MILLER
troubled, to himself
Desso!

RODOLFO
Good father!

LUISA
Embrace it,
he loves you as a son.

RODOLFO
greeting the peasants
Friends . . .
to Luisa
Are you paying?

LUISA
I'm full of joy!

LAURA, PEASANTS
Happy full makes you love.

LUISA, RODOLFO
Appien happy? It's true!
The heart is near you
he lives only in pleasure.
I love you to express
ill would tempt the saying!
The death gel shut off
he can not so ardently affection;
has our choirs a God
of eternal knots
and on the earth extinct
we will love each other in heaven!

MILLER
(I do not know what a bad voice
within my heart fav ...
Miserable me, if victim
of a seducer I was in it!
Ah! do not want, good God,
that to this destination succumbs ...
the grave is hatched
breathlessness so cruel!)

LAURA, PEASANTS
An alma, a solio desio
to both start the chest!
Never have I seen affection
more ardent, more faithful!

I hate the sacred ring

ALL
Did you hear? The bronzes ring;
Let's go and invite heaven.

From this moment everyone leaves the scene singing, and they gradually enter the church, with the exception of Miller


SCENE IV
Wurm and Detti

Enter Wurm

WURM
Stop and listen.

MILLER
Wurm!

WURM
I hear everything!
Furor of jealousy bones in my chest!
I love your daughter,
yet, a year ago,
I asked her her man;
not dissenters,
and now that more luck
to me, second breath
Now that the new Mr.
more than the extinct
it's wide of favor,
you promise
trample, and dare!

MILLER
Ah! ceases!
My fatherly assent promised,
where the daughter had loved you.

WURM
And you could not possibly
to the wedding requests to abstract it?
Do not you have straight on you?

MILLER
What do you say?
Sacra the choice is of a consort,
to be completely free must;
knot that can only be sunlit
badly from the law he receives.
I am not a tyrant, father is I,
we do not command children to the cor.
On earth a father resembles God
for the bontade, not for the rigorous.

WURM
Costarti, or old weak,
dear your blind affection will have to,
dear!

MILLER
Explain yourself.

WURM
Under false appearance
the young favorite
it shows itself to you.

MILLER
Be true! And you know?

WURM
Learn it: and the son is
of Walter!

MILLER
Or heaven! Did you say son?

WURM
Of your Mr. Goodbye.

MILLER
While …

WURM
You heard me.
part

MILLER
He broke my heart!
he remains silent for a few moments, as if oppressed by pain
Ah! my suspicion was right!
Ira and duol invades my chest!
Of all good the most holy,
I have no honor without stain.
Of a daughter the don solanto,
you made me, and I pay,
but the daughter, but your gift
Serbian intact to the parent.

Part


SCENE V
Hall in Walter's castle, with door at the back.
Walter and Wurm. Some family members, who remain beyond the threshold.

WALTER
forwarding followed by Wurm
What have you ever told!
And the reason therefore lost!

WURM
Mr., that exalted boss you know.

WALTER
Meanwhile, Duchess follows me!
Tell him I desire him.
Wurm withdraws with the servants
Ah! everything is arid,
you, my son, you only dare!
Your happiness you do not know how much it costs me!
Oh! never know, never.
My blood, life would give
to see him happy, mighty!
And to my vows, to my orders
would that choked corpse be opposed?
The paternal affection is sweetness
this is not the source of this alma. . .
Atrocious punishment, torment of hell
God disdained made it for me.

Rodolfo enters


SCENE VI
Rodolfo, and Said

RODOLFO
Father …

WALTER
M'abbraccia.
Portator son of good news.
Federica will soon be your bride.

RODOLFO
(O sky!)

WALTER
Insiem grown in the same roof,
more than you that core appreciate who potria?
As the offer of your man I made her,
drunk with joy he revealed to me
that she secret nudity for you,
before the paternal command
the Duke pressed her.

RODOLFO
(Or me lost!)

WALTER
Among the extinct weapons that hoary warrior,
the name and the heritage to her remains,
to her as a friend
the august woman offers
who presses the throne of Lamagna.
The passage opens to you in the court!

RODOLFO
Ambitious cravings not food
in cor, you know it!

WALTER
In this debil core
he trembles that my gaze does not come down.

RODOLFO:
I want you to find out ...

WALTER
Shut up ... It's the Duchess!

RODOLFO
Or father!

WALTER
Meeting with it moviam,
so the wedding ask you.

RODOLFO
And do you believe? and hope?

WALTER
Obey ... Son, read my wishes.

Taking him by the hand to the meeting of the Duchess


SCENE VII
The Duchess with the following of Damigelle: Paggi, Famigliari, Arcieri

THE COMPANIONS OF DUCHESSA
What a friendly smile,
Gentil, come, between these doors.
It is without pride in you beauty,
it is without pomp in you greatness.
The pudibonda romita star
it is destined to blaze.

FEDERICA
Joint! my friends!

WALTER
Nobil lady!
Beautiful nephew, my Rodolfo begs
the honor of favellarti.
I banished hunting
in the meantime I will hasten.
to Rodolfo
M'udisti?

All start, less Federica and Rodolfo

RODOLFO
(It is appropriate to his generous heart to trust himself.)
Duchess ...

FEDERICA
Duchess, you call me!
Federica is me;
I have never ceased to be you ever!
If luck changed, I did not change.
From the beaming classrooms of splendor
the desir was flying to the native roof
where it rises from the vergin my heart
the first hope, the first sigh!

RODOLFO
The innocence of innocence in the first years
with me you divided, divided with you.
The secret penalties of the most ardent years
or else to unveil you, prostrate at your foot.

FEDERICA
Deh! rises, Rodolfo,
you look troubled!

RODOLFO
It is not good to deny it, even if they are too much.

FEDERICA
Ah! speaks!

RODOLFO
A ruthless father invades me
not my fault to ask forgiveness ...

FEDERICA
What I mean!

RODOLFO
Yes vague, yes excess consort to me destined
the sky has not ...

FEDERICA
Oh! explain yourself.

RODOLFO
The other fate has come to me ...

FEDERICA
To another!

RODOLFO
Have mercy!
Deh! the word bitter
forgive my lips!
Can you follow all'ara,
lie, before God?
Take a core off
that fades with other love,
my right to deal with it
at your feet, you will know!

FEDERICA
Weapon, if you want, your hand,
in sen he throws me the brando.
You hear me, cruel, insane,
to you forgive by expiring;
but a jealous core
do not wait for favor;
Despised love is fury
that forgive does not know.

They leave


SCENE VIII
Interior of Miller's house. Two side doors; one puts it to Miller's room, the other to Luisa's; next to the first hangs a sword and an old soldier-like assault: in the façade the entrance, and a window, from which you glimpse part of the trepio. Odonsi to the mountains and surrounding valleys cries, and rumble of hunting instruments. Voices in the distance.

HUNTERS
Untie the greyhounds, spur the steeds,
cheerful, merry the hunt will be.
We will cross the woods ... - we will sneak the beasts ... -
The prey is safe, guggir can not ...


SCENE IX
Luisa, then Miller

LUISA
approaching the window
Nol veggo ... get away from hunting
and here I am promised.

HUNTERS
The woods are girded
we will sneak the beasts,
the prey is safe,
it will not be able to escape.

Enter Miller and throw himself on a chair

LUISA
O my father! Wich was? You look agitated!

MILLER
My fear was not vain ...
you're betrayed!

LUISA
I? Such as? Narra ...

MILLER
Sembianza and name he lied!

LUISA
Carlo? Fia ver?

HUNTERS
Sfuggir can not, etc.

MILLER
Of the Count of Walter son,
what is the father's command,
he stringer prepares for a splendid wedding.

LUISA
This is a lie. Esser can not ...

MILLER
From the castle I come,
come the bride is.

LUISA
Shut up! Kill you want your daughter?

MILLER
So a seducer welcomed my roof?
wandering around the room full of wrath, find himself in front of his old uniform hanging from the wall
For this honored honor,
that my chest one day covered,
revenge I swear!

LUISA
frightened
Father!


SCENE X
Rodolfo, and Detti

RODOLFO
still on the threshold, where he heard the last part of the interview
Luisa, do not be afraid.
The promises of this lip were not lying.
The veil, well seen, is taken away;
but changed the name,
it is always the same.

MILLER
What do you mean?

LUISA
Alas!

Rodolfo places Luisa on her knees at the feet of Miller, and prostrating herself, too, squeezes her right into her

RODOLFO
I am your husband!
The witness father and God
I'm calling for the oath.

MILLER
Ahi, discouraged!
And who can undergo the wrath of the Count?

LUISA
I frost!

RODOLFO
To me alone and to the sky
tremendous arcan is manifest!
Arcane that revealed to me
at the bottom of it I would do the Count!
No one advances ...
it is! My father!

Enter Walter

LUISA
Ah! I am lost!

MILLER
He? Himself?


SCENE XI
Walter and sayings

RODOLFO
You, sir, between these thresholds!
What are you coming to?

WALTER
To what?
Nol made the fright that catches you
very clear, very obvious?
Of my straight I come armed
to make a damnable affair.

MILLER, LUISA
That?!

RODOLFO
The nefarious accent
more from the lip you never get out of it,
pure love inflames the breast,
to abuse it to a non-lice man.

WALTER
Pure love, the abject love
of sold seductress?

LUISA, RODOLFO, MILLER
Ah!
Rodolfo snaps his sword

RODOLFO
You gave me life!
He remembers it ... I've paid you the gift now!

MILLER
You brought severe insult to me!
I was a soldier!
Tremble!

LUISA
Hate!

MILLER
Blood still boils in my veins.

WALTER
Ardiresti?

MILLER
All daring father offended in the honor!

WALTER
Crowds, now you will regret the audacity!
Hey there!


SCENE XII
A squad of archers rushes, followed by Laura and many peasants

ARCHERS
Lord?

LUISA
Right heaven!

LAURA, PEASANTS
What happened ever?

RODOLFO
And could you, or parent?

LAURA, PEASANTS
And his son!

WALTER
Come back, insane!

RODOLFO
Hate first ...

WALTER
I will not hear. Both in logs.

LAURA, PEASANTS
Ah!

MILLER
Inhuman!

LUISA
warming to Walter's knees
At your foot ...

MILLER
folding it up
Prostrate! … No!
Fra'mortali still oppressed
it's not so much innocence,
that you see genuflessa
of a proud presence.
To that God protrudes you innately
de malvagi punitor,
not to such a thing as a man,
and of beast in the breast the cor.

RODOLFO
Foco d'ira is this cry ...
cede ... give in to my love ...

WALTER
You bend, you, not me,
you owe, son, blind, ungrateful.

RODOLFO
Do not want that broken knot,
that God formed among us.

WALTER
My gesture, my wish
it is immutable like fate!

LUISA
To imagine your created,
Oh Lord, was not I too?
And because I'm trampled
or what mud from this?
Why? why?
Oh, save me ... oh, please ...
deh! I do not have the oppressor!
Your gift, my life
first resume, Mr.!

MILLER
To that God, you prostrate you, etc.

RODOLFO
Give in to my love,
Father ah, give up!
Negro vel is on my side!
I have hell in the middle of the heart!
An instant is still a son!
An instant I have a father!

WALTER
You must bend, not me,
or ungrateful son.
Between his core and his fatherly heart
you put on a foul love.
Heaven can not, hell can not
invade you with my fury!

LAURA, SOME PEOPLE
His crying wails!
His duel breaks the heart!

ARCHERS
To obey him all is strength!
He is a father, he is a mister!

WALTER
The signs are fulfilled.

RODOLFO
putting himself forward to Luisa with unsheathed iron
From this acced unraveled
will fall those who recklessly advances.

WALTER
Madman!
takes Luisa and pushes her through the archers
He throws it into me.

RODOLFO
Or anger!
If it is between the chains, my bride is
I swear to follow her in the prison.

WALTER
Well, follow it.

RODOLFO
Ah! before those vile prey have it,
the core I pass them.

throwing himself among the archers, and putting the point of the sword on Luisa's chest

WALTER
Kill her. What late?

RODOLFO
Or my fury!
Ah! I tried everything, do not stay
that an infernal advice
if raw, inexorable
you will stay with the child.
Tremble! Unveiled to men
it will be from my lips
how you came to be
Count of Walter!

It comes out quickly

WALTER
God! Rodolfo ...
I hate ... arrested ...
she left, she is free!

LAURA, PEASANTS, ARCIERI
Fia ver!

LUISA, MILLER
Pitiful heaven!

The Archers depart: Luisa falls on her knees half unconscious: the others rush around her.

Interior of Miller's house
Laura and Contadini, then Luisa

LAURA, PEASANTS
running agitated
Ah! Luisa, Luisa, where are you?

LUISA
out
Who appeals to me?
You certainly bring sad announcement!

LAURA
Unfortunately!

PEASANTS
And you listen to them.

LUISA
Talk, talk.

LAURA, PEASANTS
At the village from the fields coming back
of the rock for steep calla,
a fragor, which you were approaching,
to us it came from the first valley;
they were steps and threats of armies,
whose voice is intertwined;
to the ciglion of the cliff facing
he struck deplorable sight!
Raw henchmen drawing an ancient among chains!

LUISA
Ah! my father!

LAURA, PEASANTS
It makes cor.
You have a Just, a Mighty One
that the guard looks at you
on the miserable ones!

LUISA

You have a Just, a Mighty, etc.

WURM
Your father ...

LUISA
Finish.

WURM
Langue in hard prigion.

LUISA
What do you do?

WURM
Ei, of the vassal Count, do it with outrage
and sign threats dared!
Serious crime,
serious the pen!

LUISA
I quiver to question you!

WURM
What is worth it?
On the hoary his crin hangs the ax.

LUISA
Ah! Be quiet, keep quiet!

WURM
Still, you can save it.

LUISA
I? Such as?

WURM
The offense Conte sends me to you:
a vergar sheet imposes you,
and price is your father's escape.

LUISA
A sheet?

WURM
hinting to Luisa a table, on which there is the need to write
Write!
"Wurm, I never Rodolfo did not love ..."
Luisa writes
"His lineage is known,
and I wanted to hold him between my nets ... "

LUISA
And worse?

WURM
Save your father.
Luisa writes
"Ambition won me ... everything vanished ... forgive.
Return to the first affection,
and of Rodolfo to avoid the disdain,
like the night kingdoms,
come, and together fuggirem. "

LUISA
That!

WURM
Srivi.

LUISA
And mark this hand
could my shame?
You hope it in vain.
You punish me, O Lord,
if I offend you and pay, I am
but of the barbarians to fury
do not leave me in abandonment.
To escape from extreme fate
innocent parent
ask them, to say I quiver,
ask their daughter for the disony!

WURM
Here nothing cares to impose on your core;
you free are you. I leave you.

LUISA
Ruthless! And the wretched old man?

WURM
The udisti: he dies.

LUISA
And free I am!
giving the sheet to Wurm
The sheet is written.

WURM
On the father's head, spontaneously the writing,
Luisa, swear to me that you say so.

LUISA
I swear.

WURM
A single gesture is still prescribed to you.

LUISA
I love you.

WURM
You will have to get to the castle,
and there in the presence of noble lady
lit up shown ... by Wurm.

LUISA
Of you?

WURM
Acerba is the proof!

LUISA
No.

WURM
I am sorry!

LUISA
And then?

WURM
Then …

LUISA
My father?

WURM
Save.

LUISA
Goods.
To pieces, to pieces, or treacherous
the heart you broke me!
Almen tells you to make me
the father, the unfortunate father.
Of death the thrill shudder
all invades me.
At least the rai lock me up
the parent's man!

WURM
Courage: time is medication
of every human condolence.
To tighten your hand
I still have hope.


SCENE III
The castle: Walter's apartment
Walter, Wurm, Federica

WALTER
He raves: on the mattin of the years
won by blind affection is often reason!
Of the wisdom empy the defect
for the son, the father!
My work is accomplished,
nothing cangiar owed me:
to be pitiful cruelty would be.


SCENE IV
Wurm and sayings

WALTER
Ebben?

WURM
All set up the plot the ranks.

WALTER
Oh! Say: Luisa?

WURM
As you already anticipated, won,
conquered by credulous fright,
to the threats he surrendered;
for the hidden calle here it will come.

WALTER
But the sheet?

WURM
He bought the man he owed to Rodolfo;
victory is certain!
And yet from the first assault
I can not refuse you, I can not refuse you!

WALTER
Unexpected peril?
A son's threat!
Ingrate son!
I did not crave the high heritage
of my cousin, who is alone for it!
To get it, contaminated
I'm too black too much!

WURM
I made my lord's turn
in revealing the ascetic mind!
To me, who always trusted the core,
discovered the choice and of a bride.

WALTER
Fears were born in me very sad!

WURM
Having that knot children could!

WALTER
You suggested to buy me
horrible means!

WURM
Varcar owed the Count's nightly forest.
We posted it, and ...

WALTER
Do not follow ...
I feel the hair on my forehead!
All my blood shudder!

WURM
It is true that it is useful to speak of an event
whose eternal night among his mysteries,
has he already buried?

WALTER
Buried?

WURM
Off the ancient sire from 'masnadieri,
what we spread, everyone believed.

WALTER
No, everyone! My son ran to the rumble
of our arms ... it was not dumb
still that lip!

WURM
What I mean! Ah! perhaps? ...

WALTER
In that supreme, terrible point
Walter was naming ...

WURM
Who?

WALTER
The assassins!

WURM
Or me lost!

WALTER
Sol you? Joint
has not you been given to my destinies?
Or harmless you will be, I swear,
or on the gallows I will come with you.

WURM
(Plus this garment is not safe!
Potria of the log fall at the foot!)

WALTER
The Duchess is coming!


SCENE V
Federica, and Said

FEDERICA
With you!

At a sign from Walter, Wurm retires

WALTER
My saying goes:
of Rudolph in the sen,
the delirium of a sick man
he learned that love was off.

FEDERICA
Turned off?

WALTER
And in short.

FEDERICA
I fear!

WALTER
In vain; Luisa's core
never Rudolph did not;
of others it is she.

FEDERICA
Is it true? And who could attest it?

WALTER
She herself.

FEDERICA
She!

WALTER
What you asked here was conducted.

FEDERICA
Already:!

WALTER
Did not you want it?


SCENE VI
The Duchess sits, trying to recompose herself from her upset.
Walter opens a secret door, whence Luisa comes out, accompanied by Wurm.

WALTER
Introduce yourself to the Duchess
Can you Luisa - Do you mean?

DUCHESS
With help
Appressa.

WURM
Plan to Luisa
It reminds you of what a peril
And your father!

LUISA
(Or my terror!)

FEDERICA
(Sweet look! The face, the eyelash,
everything blows in her candor!)

LUISA
(A will be granted,
how much Heaven promised me!)

FEDERICA
It seems to me that you lack courage
d'erger my eyes to my semblant!

WALTER
She was born in a village!

WURM
High dama or treats innant!

LUISA
(Rea forge of wicked frauds are costor!)

FEDERICA
Luisa, love me. Only one of your say can do to me
unhappy, or appien happy!
Do not lie! But no, the appearance
you do not have a liar!

LUISA
(Who suffered the most breathlessness!)

FEDERICA
Do you love?

LUISA
(Destin tyrant!)

FEDERICA
Do you love?

LUISA
I love.

FEDERICA
And who? Who?

LUISA
Wurm!
(Unworthy!)

FEDERICA
But Rodolfo?

LUISA
Among us it was unknown.
I ignore that design.

FEDERICA
And he never got to love lusighe,
accents from Luisa?

LUISA
(Quai moments!)

FEDERICA
Of'.

LUISA
No! Never.

FEDERICA
(The spun in my heart was coming!)

LUISA
(Rejoice!)

FEDERICA
Parmi - yes -
cangiasti of color!
Ah! what's up? Do not fool me!
Do not betray yourself!

LUISA
(O sky!)

WALTER
(Would Dare?)

FEDERICA
Speaks.

WURM
(I frost!)

FEDERICA
The arcanum breaks the mantle
if an arcane in sen you close.

LUISA
I …

FEDERICA
Speech.

WALTER
Yes, as much as you love your father!

LUISA
(The father! Or raw!)

WURM
Come on, what late?

FEDERICA
Ebben?

LUISA
hinting Wurm
The same from Luisa you will hear each one,
what a food for it
trust, immense, ardent love!
(How to hide the desires
of my jealous love?
Alas, the broken core
the more you can not hold up!
If I stay here, lifeless
at his feet he will fall!)

FEDERICA
(A dream of joy
par that I see and hear! . . .
No, never so happy
this alma did not try!
Brake, my heart, the beats,
or I will die)

WALTER AND WURM
(Pinto has a lively joy
the smiling face!
Luck in that smile
propitious flashed!
Well I stop it, and squeeze it
the treacherous crin I will know)

The Duchess retires, followed by Walter; Wurm leads Luisa back to the secret door.


SCENE VII
Hanging garden of the castle.
Rodolfo is rushed from a flat. He has Luisa's paper in his hands; a farmer follows him.

RODOLFO
So the sheet?

FARMER
I will already all be there!

RODOLFO
I still need to hear it.

PEASANT
Secret and lively as it was with me, Luisa,
to bring him to Wurm ...

RODOLFO
And to avoid my presence ...

FARMER
He replied to me several times.
I suspect I'm not sure what plot,
and he expects me to pay for it.

RODOLFO
throwing a bag
Go out.
The farmer goes out
Hey there?
A servant appears
Wurm.
The servant departs
Oh! faith deny I could touch my eyes!
If heaven and earth, if mortals and angels
attest to me that she is not rea,
you lie! I answer I should, everyone lies.
showing the sheet
Son's figures! So much perfidy! soul more
yes, black! yes, mendacious!
Ben knew her father!
But then the judges, the hopes, the joy,
the tears, the breathlessness?
Everything is a lie, betrayal, deception!
When the nights to the placid
cheater of a starry sky
meco figgea in the ether
the look in love,
and this hand hold me
from his senite man ...
ah! betray me!
Then, I am silent, ecstatic
from his lips his pendea,
and she in angelic sound,
"I love you," he said,
so that he seemed the impiereo
open yours to mine!
Ah! it betrays me!


SCENE VIII
Wurm and Said

WURM
Did you ask me?

RODOLFO
Draw near.
the sheet offers him
Read.
Wurm reads it
At both is this hour of death.

WURM
Oh!

RODOLFO
presenting him with two guns
Choose you gods.

WURM
trying to get away
Mr. ...

RODOLFO
It stops you ...
Meco at one point
off it falls to the ground you strength ...

WURM
(Hell help me!)

Download the gun in the air.


SCENE IX
Armigers and family come from all over, followed by Walter.
Wurm, confusing himself among the survivors, disappears

SERVANTS
What happened? Or heaven!

RODOLFO
Coward! The wings have viltade!

SERVANTS
The look is shining with horror of wrath!

WALTER
Rodolfo!

RODOLFO
Father!

WALTER
Hate! Take it easy!

RODOLFO
falling at his father's feet
Ah! my father!

WALTER
Deh! Arise! Hear me out.
I am abusing my cruel rigorousness.
Have virtue a prize.
Cedo; to your faithful hand the man

RODOLFO
What a listening! You want … ?

WALTER
Rejoice!

RODOLFO
Ah! foolish I will become!

WALTER
What a smanie!
Son! Nor do I pay you?

RODOLFO
I pay?

WALTER
I hope ...

RODOLFO
Compiangimi!
Betrayed she has me!

WALTER
Betrayed!

RODOLFO
It hastens me, or death!

WALTER
No ... revenge!

RODOLFO
Such as?

WALTER
Other wedding attest
your contempt for it!

RODOLFO
What do you mean?

WALTER
Give the Duchess to the Ana pronuba.

RODOLFO
I? Yes, I want it, I'm going to ...
What am I talking about? Alas, vain!

WALTER
Rodolfo, do not regret.

RODOLFO
Where I am I do not know!

WALTER
You surrender to me,
betray your father, no, he can not.

RODOLFO
The ara, or the avellum prepare me.
I abandon myself to fate.
I'm not afraid ... I do not want ...
A desperate I am!
Now my desire is to turn
not even in heaven could I,
what a hell without her
it would be heaven for me!

WALTER
That example forgets,
that deceitful alma.
That one day you will be happy
the father promises to you.
You surrender to me, etc.

SERVANTS
Of the propitious parent
in your mind you rely on it.
In the hoped for hope;
eternal the duol is not.

Rudolf draws Rodolfo: everyone follows them.



ACT THIRD

SCENE I
Miller's house.
The window is open, and through it you can see the internally lit Tempietto.
Luisa writes at a table on which a lamp burns: on the same table there is a basket with fruit, and a cup filled with milk; in one voice of the room Laura and other townships, which sadly contemplate Luisa.

LAURA, CONTADINE
As in a single day,
how could the duel
print on that forehead
so do you have imprints?
It seems reaped lily
from cruel ploughs ...

CONTADINE
An angiol that in exile
here he was sending heaven.

LAURA
Alas!
O sweet friend, and you do not want to eat
of some food the limbed limbs?

LUISA
No.

CONTADINE
Cedi; at the moment you surrender, Luisa.

LUISA
My repugnance
respect ... I implore him.
(To this lip no more food will be approached!
Already with the delibo thinkers the heavenly sweetness!)
The temple, friends, why does it shine like this?
Shut up?

CONTADINE
Ignore siam.

LAURA
The new lordship with a sacred pump
inaugurates the Count.
(Luisa returns to writing)
Ah! the unhappy ignore
which nuzial ritual is prepared,
and what being the groom ought!
A so cruel announcement she would die!

LAURA, PEASANTS
It seems reaped lily, etc.
It seems reaped lily
from cruel ploughs ...
An angiol that in exile
here he was sending heaven.


SCENE II
Miller and Detta

MILLER
Luisa! my daughter!

LAURA
What a chaste embrace
deh! we do not disturb;
be a witness only
between daughter and father God!

He withdraws with his companions

MILLER
Pale, sad you are!

LUISA
No, my father, I am calm.

MILLER
Of the parent, oh how expensive
The escape to you cost!
I learned everything from Wurm.

LUISA
All!?

MILLER
For your love, for me you renounced.

LUISA
It is ver.
(But on earth!)

MILLER
(That calm is fatal!
I do not know what a foresight is my heart!)
takes the sheet in his hand
What sheet is this?

LUISA
At your destination, promise,
if you love me, father, who went and the fia.

Miller opens the paper and reads

MILLER
"Orribil treason disjoined it, or Rodolfo;
an oath takes me away dir dir;
havvi dwells, in which neither deception can,
nor do I swear to have any power;
there you look; like midnight
you will hear the ring, come ... "
The sheet falls out of his hand
Beneath my foot the solitude falters!
There remains an ambassed and silent moment, then turns to Luisa with a tremulous voice
That house ...
I miss feeling!
That sari dwelling? ...

LUISA
The tomb.
Why does it frighten you so much?

MILLER
Ah! on my head a fulmin dove!

LUISA
The tomb is a scattered bed of flowers,
in which the undress sleeps;
only for the guilty, trembling choruses
dresses death horrid forms;
but for two candid faithful allies
his presence has no terror ...
an angel who opens the heavens is given,
where love smiles in eternity.

MILLER
Daughter? Including of horror I am!
Daughter ... could you against yourself? ...
You are not forgiven for your suicide!

LUISA
Is it love fault?

MILLER
Cease, deh! ceases!
Wrinkle the face, aim, I plowed,
the crin blazes me the heaviest age.
The love a father has sown
in his late years he must collect.
And prepare me, cruel, you can
masses of tears and sorrows?
Ah! in the grave that you want to open
first to go down the parent!

LUISA
How guilty, alas! it's me.
Ah! no, calm you, my father.
Do not cry ... hate me!

MILLER
Luisa …

LUISA
cutting the sheet into pieces
The ragged sheet, I cancel.

MILLER
Do you want then? ...

LUISA
I want for you, good father,
stay alive.

MILLER
Daughter?

LUISA
The daughter, see, regretted
at the foot you fall.

MILLER
No, my daughter,
arise, here on my heart.

LUISA
Father, ah, my father!

LUISA, MILLER
Ah! in this embrace the soul oblates
How many martyrs tried so.

LUISA
But flee,
here the peril would encircle it.

MILLER
Healthy advice!

LUISA
Sleeping lights close a few hours,
far away is too much the day.
How to approach the new aurora
we will leave.

MILLER
Yes, daughter, yes.

MILLER, LUISA
Andrem, raminghi and poor,
where the destin takes us.
A pan asking men
andrem from door to door.
Perhaps his eyelashes
we weep,
but always to the next father
his daughter will stay.
That father and that daughter
God will bless!
At the new dawn we will leave.
As we approach the new dawn we will depart.

Miller retires
The organ sound from the church is heard

LUISA
Ah! the last prayer
in this dear soil
where happy I took life!
And where "I love you" and he told me!
Meanwhile that she is all immersed in silent prayer, a man wrapped in a long cloak has stopped at the door, a family follows him
Elsewhere tomorrow I will pray!


SCENE III
Rodolfo and Detta

RODOLFO
to the servant
Get back to the castle, and know my father
that, soon the ritual,
I await it here.
The servant departs
Pray!
Ben to pray is time!
An ampoule is drawn from the breast, and the liqueur is poured into a cup. Luisa rises, and Rodolfo stands out in front of her trump.
Rodolfo explains her letter to Wurm
Have you written this sheet?
Well? Have you written it?

LUISA
Yup.

RODOLFO
My veins, the jaws, horrible fire.
A drink . . .
He mentions towards the cup; Luisa hands her to it. Rodolo drinks
Amaro is this nappo.

LUISA
Bitter?

RODOLFO
Drink.
Luisa drinks
(It's all done!)

LUISA
No …

RODOLFO
You must flee.
A man is waiting for you to follow you;
wait to follow me to the other woman's altars.

LUISA
What are you talking about? Ah, therefore! ...

RODOLFO
They wait in vain for them!
He tears off his scarf and his sword, and throws it away from him
Goodbye sword on which to defend the innocent
and the oppressed I swore!

LUISA
Or right heaven! What do you have?

RODOLFO
My breath is closed!

LUISA
Deh! some oozes and sips ...
let me refresh you ...

wanting again to offer you the cup

RODOLFO
Ah! what makes me seem to know the infamous!

LUISA
Rodolfo, and you can hurl yes word
against your Luisa?

RODOLFO
Ah! far, far from that flattering face,
that eye in which it shines
of the stars more alive and clear ray.
Factor of the universe,
why dress with angelic features
a soul of hell?

LUISA
And tacer worse?

RODOLFO
You withdraw ...
In these anguished moments
pietade almen of an unhappy, ah! feel.

LUISA
Cry, cry; your pain
more than anger is right, ouch how much!
Cry, cry, or descend
on your core like balsam that cry.
Ah! If allowed to please my
is to get up to God,
I will get that men fatesto
of your ills is the horror.

RODOLFO
To the torment that I bear
God leaves me, in abandonment.
No, calm, comfort
these tears are not.
They are the drops, the gel that swoops
from the vault of a grave!
Drops are of living blood
that dying scatters the heart!
The oriole of the castle beats the hours
Donna, terrible for us now rang supreme!

LUISA
Rodolfo!

RODOLFO
In the mendacity that you do not understand,
oh, tremble! Amasti Wurm?

LUISA
Oh! take it easy.

RODOLFO
Woe, if you lie! Trouble!
Before this lamp goes out,
you will stand before God!

LUISA
That! Explain ... talk ...

RODOLFO
With me you drank death!
In heaven, address yourself, Luisa.

LUISA
Did you say death?
Ah! of every bond loose for her I am!
Ver vervelo ... learn it.
Moro innocent!

RODOLFO
Hate!

LUISA
Avean my father the barbarians
joined in twist
and me …

RODOLFO
Finish.

LUISA
Ahi, miserable ...
to take it away from death ...
like that monster ... mean me ...
Wurm imposed on me,
I wrote the sheet.

RODOLFO
O lightning!
And I killed you!

LUISA
Alas!

RODOLFO
Ah! Cursed, the day I was born,
my blood, my father!
I was created, against God,
in your tremendous fury.

LUISA
For the moment when you liked me,
for the death that approaches,
to outrage the LORD, ah! ceases ...
it saves me a lot of horrible ...


SCENE IV
Miller and Detti

MILLER
What do you mean? Who do I see? Or heaven!

RODOLFO
Who? The killer, miserable,
see your blood!

MILLER
What did he say? I frost!

LUISA
Father!

MILLER
Luisa!

RODOLFO
But I want the man to faint ...

LUISA
Rodolfo ... stops ...
already death meanders me in sen ...

MILLER
The death! Ah! of you!

RODOLFO
Scampo does not stay! A velen drank!

MILLER
Daughter! A poison!

LUISA
Father, you get the last goodbye,
bless me, my father.
The man, Rodolfo ... I feel missing ...
the more I do not scoff you ... it surrounds me a vel ...
Ah! come with me, deh! do not leave me,
together, welcoming must heaven.

MILLER
O daughter, or life of the paternal cor!
So we separate for eternity?
Of my promised old age,
dream you were, cruel dream!
No, this holy angel is no longer mine
he kidnaps me I envy the sky!

RODOLFO
Ah! you forgive my phallus,
and forgiven will be from God,
both join one destiny,
even the frost freezes over me.
Yes I come with you, divine spirit,
together, welcoming must heaven.

Luisa dies


LAST SCENE
The peasants enter with Walter and Wurm

PEASANTS
Deep moans among these doors!
What happened?

WALTER
Off!

PEASANTS
God of mercy!

Rodolfo sees Wurm, who is standing in the doorway, quickly grabs his sword, and pierces him

RODOLFO
Death is impious to you.
to Walter
Your penalty is worth!

He falls dead beside Luisa

WALTER
Son!

ALL
Ah!
