Vox Chocs

Cocoa soundbites from people who should have known better.

Vox Chocs

What an abominable life a lady’s maid leads! I’ve been beating the chocolate for half an hour, now it’s ready, and is it my lot to stand and smell it with a dry mouth? Oh gracious mistress, why should you get the real thing and I only the smell of it?

Despina the Maid in Act 1, Scene 8 of Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte (1790).
