Script in English

Man 1: So, wedding’s over then?

Man 2: Yeah, turned out all right, finally.

Man 1: What you mean, finally? Was it trouble?

Man 2: Well, you know.

Man 1: Know what?

Man 2: The count is so tired of the missus, he wanted to sleep with my wife, before me.

Man 1: No

Man 2: Yeah

Man 1: No

Man 2: Yeah, he likes them young. And there I was having to marry an old hag 'cause I owed her a lot of money. But then my wife and the count’s wife swapped dresses. Imagine his surprise! Well into it he discovered he was fooling around with his own missus.

Man 1: Impossible!

Man 2: Amazing!

Man 1: How about the old hag then?

Man 2: Nah, turned out it was my mother.

Man 1: Your mum?!

[Short excerpt from Figaro]

VO: Opera – the art of overdoing it. The Marriage of Figaro at the Norwegian National Opera.
Script in Orginal Language

A: Jasså, da var bryllupet unnagjort?

B: Joda, det ordna seg til slutt

A: Ordna seg? Var det trøbbel?

B: Nei, du veit. Han greven sjøl er så lei av kona si, så han ville ligge med kona mi første natta, før meg. Han liker dem unge. Og jeg skulle gifte meg med et gammalt kvinnfolk, som jeg skyldte en masse penger.

A: Men så byttet kona mi og kona til greven kjoler. Trur du han blei overraska? Godt i gang oppdaga han at det var hans egen kone. Og da kunne han ikke si stort.

B: Men hva med det gamle kvinnfolket.

A: Nei, det var mora mi det, viste det seg.
