Henrik Ibsen

ACT 4

SCENE THIRD

(Night. An encampment of Moroccan troops on the edge of the desert. Watchfires, with SOLDIERS resting by them.)

A SLAVE

(enters, tearing his hair).

Gone is the Emperor's milk-white charger!

ANOTHER SLAVE

(enters, rending his garments).

The Emperor's sacred robes are stolen!

AN OFFICER

(enters).

A hundred stripes upon the foot-soles
for all who fail to catch the robber!

(The troopers mount their horses, and gallop away in every direction.)
