turbans, and woman's slippers, and purple bands, and stomachers, and
singing, and iniquity, and adultery. If the women had not caught him in
this dress, if he had not been allowed to escape by the indulgence of
the maid servants, from a place which it was impious for him to enter,
the Roman people would have lost their devoted friend, the republic
would have been deprived of so energetic a citizen. It is in

feelings. The opera was the most eloquent manifesto of the escape from reality
