Libretto/Lyrics/Text:

AMNERIS
Quale insolita gioia
Nel tuo sguardo! Di quale
Nobil fierezza ti balena il volto!
Degna d'invidia, oh! quanto
Saria la donna il cui bramato aspetto
Tanta luce di gaudio in te destasse!

RADAMÈS
D'un sogno avventuroso
Si beava il mio cuore. Oggi, la Diva
Profferse il nome del guerrier che al campo
Le schiere egizie condurrà... Ah! s'io fossi
A tal onor prescelto.

AMNERIS
Nè un altro sogno mai
Più gentil... più soave
Al core ti parl`o? Non hai tu in Menfi
Desideri... speranze?

RADAMÈS
Io! (Quale inchiesta!
Forse... l'arcano amore
Scoprì che m'arde in core...
Della sua schiava il nome
Mi lesse nel pensier!)

AMNERIS
(Oh! guai se un altro amore
Ardesse a lui nel core!
Guai se il mio sguardo penetra
Questo fatal mister!

English Libretto or Translation:

AMNERIS
Such unwonted joy
in your gazel What
noble courage shines in your face!
Oh, how much to be envied
is that woman whose longed?for image
could awaken in you such a flame of rapture!

RADAMÈS
My heart was revelling
in a propitious dream. Today the goddess
has pronounced the name of the warrior who will lead
the Egyptian armies in the field... Oh, if I were
chosen for such an honour!

AMNERIS
Did no other dream,
more gentle… more sweet,
speak to your heart? In Memphis have you
no desires... no hopes?

RADAMÈS
I? (What a question!
Perhaps... she has discovered
the hidden love that bums in my heart...)

AMNERIS
(Ah, woe, if another love
should burn in his heart!)

RADAMÈS
(The name of her slave
she has read in my thoughts!)

AMNERIS
(Woe if my gaze penetrates
that fatal mystery!
Woe if my gaze penetrates, etc.)
