GILDA
Gualtier Maldè... nome di lui sì amato,
Ti scolpisci nel core innamorato!

Caro nome che il mio cor
Festi primo palpitar,
Le delizie dell'amor
Mi dei sempre rammentar!
Col pensier il mio desir
A te sempre volerà,
E fin l'ultimo mio sospir,
Caro nome, tuo sarà.
Sale al terrazzo con una lanterna.
Gualtier Maldè!
Marullo, Ceprano, Borsa, corttgiani, armati e mascberati, vengono dalla via. Gilda entra tosto in casa.
Caro nome, ecc.

Miratela.

Par fata od angiol.

CORO
L'amante è quella
di Rigoletto?

Oh, quanto è bella!

Rigoletto, concentrato, entra

English Libretto or Translation:

No. 6 - Aria

GILDA
Walter Maldè… name of the man I love,
be thou engraved upon my lovesick heart!

Beloved name, the first to move
the pulse of love within my heart,
thou shalt remind me ever
of the delights of love!
In my thoughts, my desire
will ever fly to thee,
and my last breath of life
shall be, beloved name, of thee.
Taking a lantern, she walks up the steps to the terrace.
Walter Maldè!

Meanwhile, Marullo, Ceprano, Borsa and other courtiers have appeared in the road, armed and masked, they watch Gilda as she enters the house.

Beloved name, etc.

BORSA
There she is.

CEPRANO
Look at her!

CHORUS
Oh, isn't she lovely!

MARULLO
She looks like a fairy or an angel.

CHORUS
So that's Rigoletto's
mistress!

BORSA, MARULLO, CEPRANO, CHORUS
Oh, isn't she lovely!

Rigoletto enters with a preoccupied air.
