CALCAGNO (calls out). Who goes there? What have we here?

GERMAN. German blows--(retreat fighting, and carry off the body of GIANET.).


SCENE V.

LEONORA, in male attire, ARABELLA following--they walk along timidly.

ARABELLA. Come, my lady, pray let us hasten onward.

LEONORA. This way the tumult rages--hark! was not that a dying groan?--Ah, they surround him!--At Fiesco's breast they point their fatal muskets--at my breast they point them--Hold! hold! It is my husband! (Throws her arms up in agony.)

ARABELLA. For Heaven's sake, my lady!-----

LEONORA (enthusiastically). Rather say, how delightful! In the majestic sound of this alarm-bell my Fiesco speaks to Genoa. (Drums are heard louder.) Ha! Never did flutes so sweetly etrike my ear. Even these drums are animated
