Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:


SCENA VII
Accorrono da varie parti Oroveso, i Druidi, i Bardi e le Ministre. Norma si colloca sull'altare

OROVESO E CORO
di dentro
Squilla il bronzo del Dio!
Tutti entrano in scena.
Norma! Che fu?
Percosso lo scudo d'Irminsul,
Quali alla terra decreti intima?

NORMA
Guerra, strage, sterminio.

OROVESO E CORO
A noi pur dianzi pace
S'imponea pel tuo labbro!

NORMA
Ed ira adesso,
Stragi, furore e morti.
Il cantico di guerra alzate, o forti.

Guerra, guerra!
Sangue, sangue! Vendetta!
Strage, strage!

English Libretto or Translation:


SCENE VII

CHORUS
The sacred gong has sounded!

OROVESO and CHORUS
Norma, what has happened?
The shield of Irminsul has sounded.
What meaning does it have?

NORMA
War,
Plunder and death.

CHORUS
But only a few hours ago
Your lips bound us to peace.

NORMA
And now to anger -
To rage, to battle, to their death!
Raise your voices, o brave men,
In the hymn of battle!
