Sample text

Gualtiero emerges from the church. He sees Edgar and Frank about to duel, and urges both to put down their weapons and restrain their anger. Each character becomes introspective as each reveals his inner thoughts: Edgar admits that he fears staining his life with a crime; Fidelia is gratified that their rage has been extinguished; Gualtiero reproaches them for allowing blind delirium to destroy their reason; Frank admits that even his father’s voice cannot restrain his anger and rage; and Tigrana is in disbelief that the voice of an old man was sufficient to quell the anger of Frank and Edgar.

Anna: Last night I dreamed that I was dying while I was awaiting your return. Roberto: Suvvia! Quali pensier! Pensa invece ai dì lieti che il destino ci promette, benigno al nostro amor! Roberto: Come now! What terrible thoughts! Think instead of our gracious destiny; its promise of love and happiness! Anna: Ma m’ami tu davver? Anna: But do you truly love me? Roberto: Mio cherubino, perchè dell’amor mio dubiti ancor? Tu dell’infanzia mia le gioie dividesti e le carezze; da te soave e pia imparai della vita le dolcezze; ero povero, e tu l’affetto mio più d’ogni ricco volesti pregiar.

Edgar appears on the terrace; he is tired and disgusted with the perverse life he has been leading with Tigrana; nostalgically, he yearns for home and the chaste Fidelia. “O soave vision di quell’alba d’april” Tigrana tries to extinguish Edgar’s doubts that her love and its carnal pleasures fulfill the essence of life. “Quel che sognavi un dì d’orgie e di baci” But Tigrana’s pleas are in vain. Edgar despairs, realizing that he has shamefully descended into an abyss of immorality. Frank, leading a platoon of soldiers, passes near the palace.
