La donna del lago

Based on Sir Walter Scott's book The Lady of the Lake, La Donna del Lago is the most romantic of Rossini's Italian operas.

A very small excerpt from the book by Sir Walter Scott. Published in 1899

The boat had touched the silver strand,
Just as the Hunter left his stand,
And stood concealed amid the brake,
To view this Lady of the Lake.
The maiden paused, as if again
She thought to catch the distant strain.
With head upraised, and look intent,
And eye and ear attentive bent,
And locks flung back, and lips apart,
Like monument of Grecian art,
In listening mood, she seemed to stand,
The guardian Naiad of the strand.

And ne'er did Grecian chisel trace
A Nymph, a Naiad, or a Grace
Of finer form or lovelier face!
What though the sun, with ardent frown,
Had slightly tinged her cheek with brown--
The sportive toil, which, short and light,
Had dyed her glowing hue so bright,
Served too in hastier swell to show
Short glimpses of a breast of snow.
What though no rule of courtly grace
To measured mood had trained her pace,--

I think I have never actually read any of his stories. Well, Rob Roy is of course familiar from the movies based on his stories.

Have a nice weekend June.
