The Sole Surviving Daughter - Helping To Plot Revenge

There, there, daughter. Weep on my shoulder.

Father, you are a consoling angel.

Just do this one thing, then we can leave this place.
Vengeance is my desire, your punishment is at hand.
The jester knows how to strike you like a bolt from God.

   Oh father, I see savage in your eyes.

Forgive him, God. He betrayed me, but I love him.

"Si Vedetta" from Rigoletto by Verdi
