You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Scorsi già molti paesi

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Scorsi già molti paesi:  
in Madrid io debuttai,
feci un'opera, e cascai;
e col mio bagaglio addosso
me ne corsi a più non posso
in Castiglia e nella Mancia,
nell'Asturie, in Catalogna;
poi passai nell'Andalusia,
e girai l'Estremadura,
come ancor sierra Morena:
ed in fin nella Galizia;
in un luogo bene accolto,
in un altro in lacci avvolto;
ma però di buon umore,
d'ogni evento superior.

(mentre Figaro canta l'aria, il Conte guarda 
con attenzione verso la finestra della casa di Bartolo)

Col sol rasoio,
senza contanti,
facendo barbe
tirai avanti;
or qui in Siviglia
fo permanenza
pronto a servir
vostra eccellenza;
se pur io merito
un tant'onor...
