ACT 1 Sung By
Search throughout the panorama Florian and Chorus
Now harken to my strict command King Hildebrand and Chorus
Today we meet, my baby bride and I Hilarion
From the distant panorama Chorus
We are warriors three Ada, Guron, Scynthius and Chorus
If you give me your attention King Gama
P'raps if you address the lady most politely
ACT 1 Sung By
Towards the empyrean heights of every kind of love Lady Psyche, Melissa and Chloe
Mighty maiden with a mission Chorus of Girls
Minerva! Minerva! Oh hear me Princess Ida
Come mighty Must! Lady Blanche

This is our duty plain Chorus
With joy abiding, Together gliding
