Ponchielli: La Gioconda (Libretto – english)
Gioconda takes up the vial of poison. Of a soul unknown It is the faithful echo.
Go along, tranquil tune Through the celestial spaces. I offer you this rosary, Pray, accept it. Crossing swifly over towards me Put your hand upon my heart. Barnaba confronts Enzo, who admits his purpose in returning to Venice is to take Laura and begin a new life elsewhere. Meanwhile Gioconda and Cieca appear at the door of the church. Now I can break the ice that chilled me I have you and suddenly this arid heart Is flooded with joy! Come, my lady, come to the kiss That gives life enchantment.
When Gioconda tries to leave, she is caught by Barnaba. She was gikconda angel Of my gooconda. The woman who was mine Brought to my name the greatest outrage! A dazzling siren Will fall into the net. A distraught Enzo flings off his disguise and is promptly seized by Alvise’s men.
Once again Gioconda has followed and has found her way into the palace, this time with the intention of saving her rival. It’s she who saved my life. Angelo, Tyrant of Padua by Victor Hugo. Cover of the original libretto.
All of the dancers rejoice in the great hall for a grand finale, which is so extravagant that the entire palace collapses at the end. In exchange for Enzo’s release from prison, La Gioconda has agreed to give herself to Barnaba. Laura enters wearing a rich ball dress. If yesterday on that fatal island This hand of mine did not seize her, Expiation will be no less terrible!
The ballet was parodied in Walt Disney ‘s classic Fantasia. Recalling that Laura was engaged to the now banished nobleman Enzo Grimaldo before her forced marriage to Alvise, Barnaba realises that the sea captain is Enzo in disguise.
To see giocondx again the horror of his face!

The ethereal curtain Shimmers like a holy altar. Portions of the ballet were also used by Spike Jones and his City Slickers in their song parodying the Indianapolis ENZO You lie, o cruel one! Giocinda in my heart The tempest stirs again – Raging! In the background the lagoon. A dancing masquerade enters; then a Barnabite, Gioconda and Cieca.
Who sings is free.
