Rienzi the Tribune is a drama in two acts and an epilogue. It is a plea against tyranny. Its author wrote it under the influence of the renovating current of the romantic historicist theater. The piece premiered in Madrid at the Teatro del Circo.
The representation of this work granted Rosario de Acuña y Villanueva the distinction of being the second woman of the nineteenth century to premiere a dramatic piece at the Teatro Español in Madrid.
Capitol Room. To the viewer’s right, two doors that connect with the rooms of Rienzi and his wife; on the left a window in the foreground and in the second a door; large door in the background, table and seat on the left; Period furniture: two floating tapestries on the two canvases in the background. A book on the table.
Mary, in the seat by the table, with a letter in her hand; Juana, next to him, sitting on a stool and doing a task; In the middle of the scene, dusk begins.
Maria: Slowly I read them and I still can’t conceive
What the lines of this letter say.
Sometimes it seems to me that I dream,
others I look at as horrible plot,
without the troubled thought
discover their intention or guess it;
And then,… by what means, in what way
Can I get to my own room?
(Reading.) ‘The Barons of Orsini and Colonna
“and other nobles of less clear lineage,
“with your husband Rienzi assembled,
“Peace will settle in your house;
»of the oath that on solemn feast
»to the great Tribune they will lend tomorrow,
»It is to be dealt with in this conciliabulum;
“But if in it the foundations are prepared,
“As long as they are not solemnly sworn to,
»Rienzi’s head threatened
“He must live; just one person
“With a firm will he can save her,
“Because perhaps the aforementioned oath
“It is not lent if one is missing;
»For this to be avoided it is necessary
»You consent to receive in your stay,
“On this very night, being alone
“And at the end of the touch of the souls,
»To whom I can say clearly
»the way to ward off so much misery;
»What’s more, great family secrets
“You may know, and perhaps your race,
»Rienzi managed to give him a crown
“Which his ambition could never dream of;
“Think about it, tomorrow late outside.
» If you accept, place in the window
“One light and then wait alone”
“Rienzi’s salvation or his misfortune;
“Aquesto says who has blazons;
“Do not forget, for you are Roman.”
