Elviʹno

.

A rich farmer, in love with Amiʹna, the somnambulist. The fact of Amiʹna being found in the bed of Count Rodolpho the day before the wedding, induces Elvino to reject her hand and promise marriage to Liza; but he is soon undeceived—Amiʹna is found to be innocent, and Liza to have been the paramour of another; so Amiʹna and Elviʹno are wedded under the happiest auspices. (Belliʹni’s opera, La Sonnambula.) (See Liza.)
