Vasto teatro è il mondo, Alidoro's cavatina from La Cenerentola

Vasto teatro è il mondo, siamtutti commedianti,
Si può fra brevi istanti carattere cangiar.
Quel ch'oggi è un Arlecchino battuto dal padrone,
Domani è un signorone, un uomo d'alto affar,
Fra misteriose nuvole, che l'occhio uman non penetra,
Sta scritto quel carattere che devi recitar.
Odo del cocchio crescere il prossimo rumore
Vieni, t'insegni il core colui che devi amar.
