Act 2, scene 2: Amelia [Amalia] slips up on the slumbering elderly Moor, who is dreaming about his expelled son Charles (Karl): “Hark! Hark! his son is in his dreams.”
Act 2, scene 3: Father Dominic, trying to turn the robbers away from their leader, is so astonished at Charles’s noble-mindedness and magnanimity that he flees: “I shall go mad! I must be gone! Was the like ever heard of?”
