Orlando Furioso, Marionettistica Fratelli Napoli
In a scene not found in the original poem, Alda tries to convince Orlando not to leave Paris in search of Angelica (8:03-14:38):
From Orlando: Furiosamente solo rotolando by Enrico Messina:
Night in the camp and Orlando’s flight / La Notte al campo e la Fuga di Orlando. All the soldiers sleep at night, snoring like one huge body. Only one doesn’t sleep: Orlando, smitten with love, finds no rest. He has but one thought: Angelica…Angelica…Angelica… exhausted, he decides to escape the camp, and search for his love.
