My favorite line
At the end of La Donna del Lago, the king grants Elena's wish and pardons her father and lover. As he hands Malcolm over to her, the pair say "Oh Stelle!" (Oh, Stars!). The Met's titles translated that as "Oh merciful God!", not a bad in-context translation.
And it perfectly set up my now favorite line, from Bertram, the king's major domo. "Oh Re clemente!" Which is to say, "Oh merciful king!"
Yeah. Credit where it's due.
