Claudine's fantasy life . . . REVEALED!

If you were to hear the dialogue in Claudine's head, it would be really, really bad. Like, No, no, Lord Eversham! You mustn't! I am an innocent governess, reared strictly in a Belgian convent! With many coy euphemisms for body parts during the interesting bits.

But I have better taste than Claudine does.

Lorenzo da Ponte, libretto to Mozart's Don Giovanni.

Don Giovanni:
La ci darem la mano,
La mi dirai di si.
Vedi, non e lontano!
Partiam, ben mio, da qui.








Zerlina, the pretty village coquette:
Vorrei, e non vorrei.
Mi trema un poco il cor.
Felice e ver', sarei,
Ma puo burlarmi ancor.




Don Giovanni:
Vieni, mio bel diletto!



Zerlina:
Mi fa pieta Masetto.



Don Giovanni:
Io cangero tua sorte.

Zerlina:
Presto non son piu forte.



Don Giovanni:
Andiam!

Zerlina:
Andiam.



Together:
Andiam . . .
Andiam, andiam, mio bene,
A ristorar le pene
D'un innocente amor.
