Spring 2018 - Mein Herr Marquis
Act V : Mein Herr Marquis (My Lord Marquis / Adele's Laughing Song)
Die Fledermaus (Johann Strauss II, 1874)
Libretto (Indirect Translation):
(Adele is a chambermaid who has stolen her mistress' dress to attend a lavish party. Her mistress' husband believes he recognizes her, and Adele awkwardly and nervously attempts to convince him that she is far too elegant to be a maid)
Mein Herr Marquis, ein Mann wie Sie
Sollt’ besser das verstehn,
Darum rate ich, ja genauer sich
Die Leute anzusehen!
(My lord Marquis, you've insulted me! A most impolite thing to do.
Though you were unkind, I am too refined
to say what I think of you!)
Die Hand ist doch wohl gar zo fein, hahaha.
Dies Füsschen so zierlich und klein, hahaha.
(This delicate hand is so fine hahaha
This foot of such tiny design hahaha)
The Spring 2018 Collection is inspired by opera arias.
