    Lyrics

    CARLOTTA:

    This trophy from our saviours, from our saviours!
    From the enslaving force of Rome!

    GIRL'S CHORUS:

    With feasting and dancing and song, tonight in celebration, we greet
    the victorious throng, returned to bring salvation!

    MEN'S CHORUS:

    The trumpets of Carthage resound! Hear, Romans, now and tremble! Hark
    to our step on the ground!

    ALL:

    Hear the drums -- Hannibal comes!

    PIANGI:

    Sad to return to find the land
    we love threatened once more by Roma's far-reaching grasp,

    REYER:

    Signor . . . if you please: "Rome".
    We say "Rome' not "Roma"

    PIANGI:

    Si, si, Rome, not Roma. Is very hard for me.

    LEFEVRE:

    This way, gentlemen, this way.
    Rehearsals, as you see, are under way, for a new production of
    Chalumeau's "Hannibal".
    Ladies and gentlemen, some of you may already, perhaps, have met M.
    Andre and M. Firmin ...

    REYER:

    I'm sorry, M. Lefevre, we are rehearsing.
    If you wouldn't mind waiting a moment?

    LEFEVRE:

    My apologies, M. Reyer. Proceed, proceed ...

    REYER:

    Thank you, monsieur.
    "Sad to return..." Signor ...

    LEFEVRE:

    M. Reyer, our chief repetiteur. Rather a tyrant, I'm afraid.

    PIANGI:

    Sad to return to find the land we love
    threatened once more by Rome's far-reaching grasp.
    Tomorrow, we shall break the chains of Rome.
    Tonight, rejoice - your army has come home.
