Iolanta, the blind Princess

Iolanta:
Why have I been given eyes?
So that I may weep…


Vaudemont:
Does that mean there is no desire in your heart to see the light, and the glory of the universe?

Iolanta:
What does the word “see” mean?

Vaudemont:
To know the beautiful light.

Iolanta:
Knight, what is light?
From the opera
IOLANTA

Music — Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky
