English title is: "My heart with joy is bounding light"; Not sure why an English translation needed of a work possibly originally written in English.

No.17 from this opera became independently famous, a polka with variations that became a favorite, apparently, of Henrietta Sontag's (and often referred to as Sontag's Polka, or Le célèbre polka chantée par Madame Sontag dans l’opéra Le 3 Nozze par Giulio Alary, etc.)
