CHORUS
Here he comes!... Be silent!

Good morning, Rigoletto.

RIGOLETTO
(They were all in on it!)

CEPRANO
What news, jester?

RIGOLETTO
What news, jester?
Only that you are more of a bore than usual.

BORSA, MARULLO, CEPRANO, CHORUS
Ha! ha! ha!

RIGOLETTO
La ra, la ra, la la...
restlessly searching everywhere
(Where can they have hidden her?...

BORSA, MARULLO, CEPRANO, CHORUS
(See how upset he is!)

RIGOLETTO
La ra, la ra, la la

BORSA, MARULLO, CEPRANO, CHORUS

I am glad
that the cold air last night
did not harm you in the least...

MARULLO
Last night!...

MARULLO
But I was asleep all night!

RIGOLETTO
Ah, you were asleep! So I dreamed it!
La ra, la ra, la la

(It isnt hers.)

Without his escort! Unarmed!

BORSA, MARULLO, CEPRANO, CHORUS
Don't you understand
that he can't see anyone right now?

RIGOLETTO
standing apart, be has followed the conversation attentively, and now leaps among them, crying out:
Ah, she is there, then! She is with the Duke!

BORSA, MARULLO, CEPRANO, CHORUS
Who?

RIGOLETTO
The girl you carried off
from my house last night.
But I shall get her back... She's in there!

BORSA, MARULLO, CEPRANO, CHORUS
If you've mislaid your mistress, look for her elsewhere.

RIGOLETTO
I want my daughter!

BORSA, MARULLO, CEPRANO, CHORUS
His daughter!

RIGOLETTO
Yes, my daughter! After such a sweet revenge,
what? You're not laughing?
She's in there I want her Give her back.

running towards the centre door, but finding it barred by the courtiers

Courtiers, vile, damnable rabble,
how much were you paid for my treasure?
There's nothing you won't do for money,
but my daughter is beyond any price.
Give her back or this hand, though unarmed,
will prove a dread weapon indeed.
A man will fear nothing on earth
when defending his children's honour.
Assassins, open that door!

He again attacks the door, is dragged away from it by the courtiers, struggles awhile, then gives up, exhausted.

Ah! You're all against me!
weeping
All against me!
Then I'll weep. Marullo, my lord,
you whose soul is as gentle as your heart,
tell me, where have they hidden her?
Shes in there isn't she? You don't answer
Alas! My lords, forgive me, have pity!
Give an old man back his daughter!
To give her back can cost you nothing now,
but to me my daughter is everything.
Lords, forgive me
Give me my daughter back,
to me my daughter is everything.
Lords, forgive me.

Gilda suddenly runs from the room on the left and throws herself into her father's arms.
