Commentary At the Duke's palace, Altisidora, held by Emerencia, pretends to faint when she encounters don Quixote.
Don Quixote appears dressing his boots, scarlet cloak, green velvet cap and his sword belt; "y al pasar por una galería, estaban aposta esperándole Altisidora, y la otra doncella su amiga. Y así como Altisidora vio a Don Quijote, fingió desmayarse" (46:2).
Simple and theatrical composition; it has been resolved accurately to Cervantes' text.
First representation of this episode; original choice.
