Stats for this track
At the climax of the great aria “Papers, papers” Magda Sorel (Marcy Stonikas) expresses a powerful hope:
Oh, the day will come, I know, when our hearts aflame will burn your paper chains!
Warn the Consul, Secretary, warn him:
that day neither ink nor seal shall cage our souls.
That day will come!
