Example text

Oscar: The fortune teller makes wondrous prophecies, and it’s well that I also question her; I shall hear if the stars smile on me, and if fate will be good to me. Horn, Ribbing, e Cospiratori: Senza posa vegliamo all’intento, nè si perda ove scocchi il momento; forse l’astro che regge il suo fato nell’abisso là spegnersi de’. Horn, Ribbing, and Conspirators: We’ll be there without calling attention to our grim objectives; perhaps the God who protects him will abandon him that day. Tutti: Teco sarem di subito, incogniti alle tre nell’antro dell’oracolo, della gran maga al piè.

Anckarström: I swear it. Gustavo: E che tocche le porte n’andrai da solo all’opposto. Anckarström: Lo giuro, e sarà. Gustavus: And once you reach the city gates, you will go in an opposite direction. Anckarström: I swear it, and it will be so. Amelia: Odi tu come fremono cupi per quest’aura gli accenti di morte? Di lassù, da quei negri dirupi, il segnal de’ nemici partì. Ne’ lor petti scintillano d’ira, e già piomban, t’accerchiano fitti. Al tuo capo già volser la mira. Per pietà va, t’invola di qui.

Anckarström describes that he had been cloaked in disguise and spied on the conspirators; he is now privy to their fatal plans to assassinate the king. In the darkness, Anckarström does not recognize Amelia, now veiled. Anckarström persuades Gustavus to flee to safety; both exchange cloaks. Before departing, Gustavus makes Anckarström promise to escort the veiled lady back to the city and protect her anonymity; he must not raise her veil nor look at her face. Gustavus departs, leaving Anckarström alone with the veiled, unknown lady.
