Excerpt from The American History and Encyclopedia of Music, Vol. 2: Operas; With Introduction by H. E. Krehbiel
They depart in dejection and Hortensio meets the wealthy and gallant Petruchio of Verona, who has recently arrived in Padua. The two are old acquaintances and, in the course of the conversation, Petruchio laments the fact that he is rich and surrounded by sycophants and expresses a longing for the piquancy of having his will Opposed.
Hortensio is at once reminded of Katherine, and recommends her for the purpose. Petruchio, drawing upon his memory, recalls her as a froward little girl he once met, who angrily escaped his kiss and ran away. His is a soul which loves to conquer Opposition and he vows to wed this recalcitrant young lady. They are before her window, and looking up at it, he laughs quietly to himself and bids her, Sleep soft, for but one short and passing season, For thee a battle waits.
