Example text

Each man is now paired off with the other’s betrothed. Don Alfonso announces that the notary has arrived with the marriage contracts — Despina in disguise. With due courtesy, the contract arrangements are agreed upon, but just as the ladies are about to sign, a distant drum roll is heard, and Don Alfonso announces that Ferrando and Guglielmo have returned from the wars. In panic, the sisters push their intended “Albanian” husbands away; the “Albanians” go off to hide themselves. Don Alfonso arrives to console the terrified and understandably very penitent sisters.

He tells them that they might as well admit that they indeed love sweethearts, and even though their fiancées have been unfaithful, Don Alfonso advises that they marry them. Don Alfonso says: “Women cannot be faithful, but I don’t mind it, for I can see the principle behind it. You are wrong to upbraid them. You have to take them as they are, as Mother Nature made them. There is only one conclusion; women are always untrue; it’s no illusion. All your ancestors, fathers, and brothers went through it.

Guglielmo: Scempiaggini di vecchi! Guglielmo: An old man’s foolishness! Così fan tutte Libretto Act I Page 39 Don Alfonso: Or bene, udite, ma senza andare in collera: qual prova avete voi che ognor costanti vi sien le vostre amanti; chi vi fe’ sicurtà che invariabili sono i lor cori? Don Alfonso: Then listen, but without getting angry: What proof do you have that your lovers will always be faithful? What has made you so sure of the integrity of their hearts? Ferrando: Lunga esperienza. Ferrando: Long experience.
