SEMPRE LIBERA Testo. VIOLETTA. Follie! Follie! Delirio vano è questo! Povera donna, sola, abbandonata In questo popoloso deserto Che appellano Parigi, Che spero or più? Che far degg’io? Gioire! Di voluttà ne’ vortici perir! Gioir! Sempre libera degg’io Folleggiare di gioia in gioia, Vo’ che scorra il viver mio Pei sentieri del piacer.
