Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

LÉÏLA
Dans le ciel sans voile,
Parsemé d'étoiles,
Au sein de la nuit
Trasparent et pur,
Comme dans un rêve,
Penché sur la grève,
Mon regard, oui, mon regard vous suit
À travers la nuit!
Ma voix vous implore,
Mon cœur vous adore,
Mon chant léger,
Comme un oiseau semble voltiger!

CHŒUR
Ah! chante, chante encore!
Oui, que ta voix sonore,
Ah! que ton chant léger,
Loin de nous, chasse tout danger!

LÉÏLA
Ah!

NADIR
Il s'est glissé jusqu'au pied du rocher.
Léïla! Léïla!
Léïla se penche vers lui et écarte son voile un instant.
Ne redoute plus rien! Me voici! Je suis là!
Prêt à donner mes jours, mon sang pour te défendre!

CHŒUR
Ah! chante, chante, encore! etc.

LÉÏLA
Pour toi, pour toi que j'adore,
Ah! je chante encore!
Je chante pour toi que j'adore!
Il est là! Il m'écoute! Ah!

NADIR
Ah! Chante, chante encore!
O toi que j'adore,
Ne crains nul dnager!
Je viens pour te protéger!
Ne crains rien, je suis là!
Léïla, ne crains rien!
Léïla, je suis là!

ACTE II
Les ruines d'un temple indien; au fond, une terrasse élevée dominant la mer. Le ciel est étoilé.

English Libretto or Translation:

LEILA
In the cloudless sky,
studded with stars,
in the dead of night,
as transparent and pure
as in a dream,
bent towards the beach,
my eyes, yes,
my eyes follow you;
through the darkness,
my voice beseeches you,
my heart adores you,
my nimble song
seems to flit about
like a bird.

CHORUS
in the distance
Ah! keep singing, keep singing!
Yes, let your voice ring out,
Ah! let your nimble song
drive sway every peril!

LEILA
Ah!

Nadir slips along to the foot of the rock.

NADIR
God, it is she!
Leila! Leila!

Leila bends towards him and her veil momentarily opens.

You need no longer fear!
Here I am! I have come,
ready to lay down my life and shed my blood
to defend you!

CHORUS
Ah! Keep singing, keep
singing, etc.

LEILA
He is here! He is listening to me!
For you, for you I adore,
Ah! I shall keep singing,
I sing for you I adore!
He is here! He is listening to me!
Ah!

NADIR
Ah! keep singing, keep singing,
O you I adore!
You need fear no danger,
I have come to protect you.
Have no fear, I am here!
Leila, have no fear!
Leila, I am here!

CHORUS
Ah! keep singing, keep singing,
yes, let your voice ring out,
ah! let your song tonight
drive every danger tar away!
Ah!
