On your command I will gladly stop the world spinning and I would dispatch Panza [my servant] so that you shall see it motionless and silent. I will sweep the stars from the skies and then replace them with my lance if you command me so, my Dulcinee.

Don Juan’s Serenade
In Alpujura it is growing dark and with my guitar I call my darling! I shall challenge my rivals to combat! Nissetta, come quickly to the balcony. From Seville to Granada serenades can be heard and the clashing of swords; Much blood and many songs are flowing for the sake of the beautiful ladies. To her who is the fairest of them all, I shall give all- my song and my blood!
