MAN AND DRUM
Oulanem: Act I
A mountain town
Oulanem. But we intend to make a lengthy stay
Oulanem. Once more we thank you warmly
(Oulanem and Lucindo go out with the servant.)
Lucindo. Curiosity. The old find nothing new
Pertini. Indeed! Your time of life!
Lucindo. I swear to it
Pertini. That's bad!
When I rage inwardly
Lucindo (indignantly). What do you mean?
Pertini. Just one more word
Pertini. Good. But who grasps more than is seen?
Lucindo. I don't believe it
Lucindo. Ha! It might well be chance. You don't deceive me!
Lucindo. You know him? Heavens! Speak! In Heaven's name!
Pertini. You know the boys' reward? Its name is--silence
(He rushes off.)
Lucindo. What would you? Off with you!
Lucindo. You drive me to it
Lucindo. Confess to you?
Lucindo. What's that to you?
Lucindo. What? Swear to you?
A room in Pertini's house
(He sits down at the table and writes.)
Lucindo. Why bring me here?
Beatrice (to Lucindo). Welcome!
(She offers him a place on the sofa.)
(Aside to Pertini.)
Away! There is still time; here I am lost!
Beatrice (abashed). Did I speak out of place?
Lucindo (in a low voice). But man!
Lucindo. I'll gladly sit here if you truly wish it
Beatrice. Our friend Pertini's often strangely moody
Lucindo. To all? Well said! You would be kind to all?
Beatrice. Would you not too?
Lucindo (in a serious voice). Lucindo is my name
Pertini. What's all this noise? You think you're on the street?
(Beatrice falls in a faint.)
Lucindo. Help! She swoons! O God!
(He carries her to the sofa.)
Beatrice (with a deep sigh). I'm full of fear
