[Glackens 48.]

After Lola goes into the church, Turiddu turns to follow her. Santuzza begs him to remain, but he refuses. She shouts a curse at him, and remains on stage sobbing. Following a skip in Mapleson's recording, Alfio has entered and Santuzza is telling him what has happened.

[original]
(a) Simultaneous singing begins

SANTUZZA
Ah! no! Turiddu, rimani, rimani ancora,
dunque vuoi abbandonarmi, Turiddu?

TURIDDU
Va! Pentirsi è vano dopo l'offesa! Simultaneous singing ends

SANTUZZA
Bada!

TURIDDU
Dell'ira tua non mi curo! ( He throws her down and goes into the church. )

SANTUZZA
A te la mala Pasqua, spergiuro!

SANTUZZA
(b)
[Turiddu mi tolse, mi tol]se l'onore,
Turiddu mi tolse, mi tolse l'onore,
e vostra moglie lui rapiva a me!
Turiddu mi tolse, mi tolse l'onore!

ALFIO
Se voi mentite, vo' schiantarvi il core.

SANTUZZA
Uso a men[tire il labbro mio non è!]

[translation] Simultaneous singing begins

SANTUZZA
Ah, no! Turiddu, stay with me, stay!
Would you abandon me. Turiddu?

TURIDDU
Go! Repentance is pointless after the offense! Simultaneous singing ends

SANTUZZA
Enough!

TURIDDU
Your anger doesn't bother me! ( He throws her down and goes into the church. )

SANTUZZA
I wish you a curse on Easter, betrayer!

SANTUZZA
Turiddu has taken my honor,
Turiddu has taken my honor.
and your wife has stolen him from me!
Turiddu has taken my honor!

ALFIO
If you are lying, I will tear out your heart.

SANTUZZA
My lips are not used to lying!
