LUST'S DOMINION;

OR,

THE LASCIVIOUS QUEEN.

ACT THE FIRST.

SCENE I.
Enter ZARACK, BALTAZAR, two Moors, taking to-

bacco ; music sounding within : enter QUEEN
Mother of SPAIN with two Pages : ELEAZAR,
sitting on a chair: the curtain is suddenly drawn.*
ELEAZ. On me does music spend this sound! on

me,
That hate all unity! ah! Zarac, Baltazar !

Q. Mo. My gracious lord.
ELEAZ. Are you there with your beagles ! hark,
you

slave's !
Did not I bind

your

lives to watch,
That none disturb'd us?

Q. Mo. Gentle Eleazar.
ELEAZ. There, off: is't you that deaf me with
this noise ?

[Exeunt two Moors. * The curtain, in front of the old theatres, divided in the middle, and was drawn to the sides : “and beside the principal curtain they sometimes used others as sabstitutes for scenes.”-Malone.
