[Theseus and Hippolyta enter and take their seats, followed by Philostrate and attendants]. THESEUS:Now fair Hippolyta, our nuptial hour draws on apace (arriva in fretta): four happy days bring (portano) in another moon: but O, methinks (penso) how slow this old moon wanes (cala)!She lingers (attarda) my desires, like to a step-dame (matrigna), or a dowager (vedova nubile), long withering (inaridita) out (da) a young man's revenue (entrata). HIPPOLYTA:Four days will quickly steep (immergono) themselves in night: Four nights will quickly dream away the time:and then the moon, like to a silver bow (arco d'argento) new-bent (appena teso) in heaven (cielo), shall behold (contemplerà) the night of our solemnities. THESEUS:Go, Philostrate,stir up (solleva) the Athenian youth (gioventù) to merriments (allegria), awake (risveglia) the pert (vivace) and nimble (agile) spirit of mirth (allegria), turn (ricaccia) melancholy (malinconia) forth (innanzi) to funerals:the pale (pallido) companion (compagno) is not for our pomp.[PHILOSTRATE bows (si inchina) and departs]. Hippolyta, I wooed (corteggiai) thee (te) with my sword (spada), and won thy (tuo) love doing thee injuries:but I will wed (sposerò) thee in another key (chiave), with pomp (cortei), with triumph, and with revelling (divertimento).
