Ah heaven! What are you talking about?
Of this chosen land

blessed you did it, I was happy
He was by your side, but ...

BALDASSARRE
Speak, finish.

FERNANDO
A new man attacked me
sweet desio, that to explain I dare not;
courses at the temple, at the prece mentioned the core
to glory and to virtue, but the love won.

A virgin, an angel of God
at the altar he prayed with me,
a spike, a joy, a desire,
a terror this impious soul.

Ah, my father! Rapíami the beautiful,
until the extreme virtude of the cor.
I ask heaven for comfort, but that,
only that is an innate tutor.

From that day on that you have sweetened them
aure grate with it expired,
these walls are serious to Fernando
a happier destiny dreamed.

Of my ills in the procella
an eager searches for my heart,
and to heaven I turn, but that,
only that is innuendo tuttor.

But answer: who is given, the beautiful

You save me! you guide me to the port;

BALDASSARRE
He grabs the hand of Fernando that I took to leave, he tells him with emotion
Perfidy, betrayal
you, my son, will attack;
May your life be a torment
the pain with you will live.
Perhaps in the lap to the treacherous wave
a sigh, hear me one day:
both of the shipwrecked and the lido
He goes looking for him to flee.

FERNANDO
Father, I leave you.

BALDASSARRE
Is that!

LEONORA
(Ah! What did he say? That inflamed chest

LEONORA
(He did not know ... my fate!)

FERNANDO
Weaving of infamy with weaving;
me alone chose the king.

ALFONSO
with anger
Marquis! ...

FERNANDO
I'm not like that:
Every precious name
will know how to kick my foot.
(to the Knights)
Gentlemen; to honor come back to me;
target of fate
I'm going to meet death
and the only name each
I will have the parent.

LEONORA
to Don Gasparo
(Ines, answer, where is it?)

GASPARO
(Ines! Locked up in jail ...)

LEONORA
(Or everything is known to me).

FERNANDO
the order received from the king is removed from the neck
This revered ordinate,
price of infamy, I yield;
the desecrated brando,
draws the sword
of your enemies to the edge
so much tremendous finer
I break before you,
what a gift and the fu of the king.

Cursed is the time and the day,
that in me fell so much misery,
that I compensate for my sweats
you threw me infamy and or;
Serbian, Serbian ah, your treasures,
leave only the honor to me.

LEONORA
to the king
Grace, ah sire! on this day
for us he fell so far;
then turns to Fernando who rejects her
nobil alma, your fury,
they are strals to my heart;
the vengeance you implore,
you will have it well, but still hate me.

ALFONSO
Too much, ah! too much on this day
he fell into me with outrage and discontent,
tremble, ungrateful, my fury
you double and my pain:
the vengeance you implore
in remorse it is of my heart.

BALDASSARRE
Cursed is the time and the day
that in us fell so much misery,
braided with laurels
serto was of disonor,
to Fernando
come, O son, and to your fury
make the parent calm.

GASPARO and CHORUS
We fell on this day
remorse and insecem the mess;
we despised him, and of high honors
that noble heart is very worthy;
vanne, o prode, and to your fury
make the parent calm.

General movement, Fernando leaves followed by Baldassarre, the Knights divide respectfully to let him pass; and they bow before him.



ACT FOURTH

The scene represents the facade of the church of St. James.


FIRST SCENE
Monks and Baldassarre. Some of them are prostrate, others dig their grave and repeat at intervals.

CHOIR
Comrades, let's go where the pain has truce.

BALDASSARRE
Most beautiful splendon
in the stars,

in me he plunged:

of a child again
I mean the voice,
but the last time
for her it sounded.

CHOIR
Most beautiful splendon
in the stars,
horrible anguish
that cor tried.

Of a child again
the entry intends,
but the last time
for her it sounded.

All enter the chapel less Baldassarre and Fernando.


SECOND SCENE
Baldassarre and Fernando.

BALDASSARE
Beloved son, to the father
you alone remain; of the Alfonso family
he was an unhappy victim
your sister.

FERNANDO
In that temple, you lie,
no longer can the shame
of the repudiation cruel; to whom you damn
the wicked for women
that in even more black mantle
He wanted to cover your other child.

BALDASSARE
It's true.
Fernando, in me of the years
the weight is serious, to you my revenge,
your commission; a blood heritage
get ready for me.
Let my cener be sad in the grave.
Incamminandosi

FERNANDO
Will you leave me?

BALDASSARE
In the temple
vanne, appeals to me an unhappy man. In this
night came and here, miserable, sick,
my rescue and asks.

FERNANDO
Young woman still?

BALDASSARE
In the greener age:
shot down, trembling, extreme fate
threatens his days.

FERNANDO
Ouch! wretch!
Baldassarre part


SCENE THIRD
Fernando alone.

FERNANDO
King's Favorita! what a black abyss,
what my infernal plot, my glory
wrapped up in an instant,
and every spunked of the lover's core!

Gentle spirit in my dreams
you shone a day but I lost you:
flee from the heart, lied hope,
larvae of love, flee together.
Sleal woman, next to you
of the parent he forgot the cry;
the homeland, the sky; and in so much love,
of mortal stain the core.


FOURTH SCENE
Baldassarre, called and Monks.

BALDASSARE
Son, deh vien!

Peace to the nun I am with you
or I will pray.

Everyone enters the temple.


SCENE FIFTH
Lonely Leonora.

LEONORA
Fernando, ah where,
where will I ever find it! This is the earth
that he alone dwells; in these spoils,
God of mercy, deh! let them insine him
he gave me to forward; from the rio pain
faded, I am
at a morir. Of my life the gift
take, great God, but of Fernando to the foot
deh! forgive me.

CHOIR

That up to heaven our preceded ascend,
on the betrayal that the dolor extinguishes.

LEONORA
What a listening! a prayer! heaven is invoked
on the betrayal ...

CHOIR
Partner your favor, Nume, make it
of those chosen by your choir.

LEONORA
Or what will this alma be?
that now returns to the sky!

FERNANDO

And the implacable duol over the rea
of misfortunes cagion rat descend.

LEONORA
It is, he is!
It is a question of revenge! Ah, I'm lost!
Escape from these thresholds ... Oh God! ... I can not ...
death my heart chills me.
he falls exhausted at the cross


SCENE SESTA
Fernando coming out of the temple, and said.

FERNANDO
Oh my sister,
for a little while you wait for me; grieving grief
yes, he invades me, at your side he calls me,
but still you are already an adult.

LEONORA
trying to get up
Oh God! what a penalty.
Alas! what a frost!

FERNANDO
What did you listen to? Who I see!
An unhappy man!
is approaching
Oh, welcome you.

LEONORA
It is!

FERNANDO
backing away with horror
Oh God!

LEONORA
Do not curse Leonora.

FERNANDO
Ah! go, fly you; and this earth
no more profane the river your foot,
let me fall down quietly,
not condemned to you.
In its halls the king t'appella,
of gold and infamy will cover you,
at his side you will be more beautiful,
your infamous name will all be.

LEONORA
Under the ice, the cliffs, the brushwoods, the stones,
moving to every prayer, I drew here.

FERNANDO
O you, who deceived me,
what do you expect from me?

LEONORA
On both sides
a sol error falls.
I hope that the arcane black revealed to you
Ines had, and your forgiveness I hoped.
Believe me, you do not mind
on the edge of the tomb; to you, Fernando,
the messenger did not arrive, and the truth was concealed;
ah! your forgiveness, only the forgiveness I hope

Pietoso at the par of the Nume,
a number for me;
ouch! that cried a river
lunge pourai from you.
D'onta fatal marked,
nothing else I have in sen,
that to die blessed
of your forgiveness almen.

FERNANDO
To that trouble, to that accent,
I hear, oh God! to temper the heart;
at that sigh I remember
the first days of love.

LEONORA
My torment hurts to black,
deh, let your beautiful heart die;
I remind you of your forgiveness
the first days of love.

To my grief, to my fright,
comfort only one accent!
For your father, ah, let me,
for the death I am at.

FERNANDO
Vanne, vanne.

LEONORA
For your love
how happy you are one day.

FERNANDO
Right sky! my fury
as an inarid leaf.

LEONORA
Your pietade alfin gives me
or you push me into the avel.

FERNANDO
Ah! Leonora ... God forgives.

LEONORA
And you?

FERNANDO
I love you more and more!
Come, ah come, I abandon myself
to the joy that amazes me,
my throne is made of my heart,
with you on the side I will die.

As a flash, rises to the alma
a voice and a thought,
flee, ascend to the whole world
your life, your joy.

LEONORA
And be true! ... I abandon myself
to the joy that bursts me.
Of his heart he is made the throne,
I fully pay is my desir.

But answer, you do not know the alma
in your voice, at your thought,
deh! hide from the whole world
my life, my death.

FERNANDO
Let's flee together.

LEONORA
Ah shut up: it is vain.
one hears in the Church repeating the religious chorus
Do you hate that focus?

FERNANDO
Here we go.

LEONORA
It's heaven
that speaks to you.

FERNANDO
Let us flee; in you put away
my fate is sol, deh come.

LEONORA
You turn to God.

FERNANDO
The love is stronger; to possess you
I will all deal with men and the sky.

LEONORA
feeling missing
Ah! of the Nume the favor, on the black abyss
behold, it saves you, goodbye, to be able to supreme
you save a crime; ah, of my fate
I do not complain: God, Fernando, the will;
from today I wash you
with my death.

FERNANDO
Ah no, let's flee.

LEONORA
looking lovingly at him
Fernando!

FERNANDO
Ah my Leonora?

LEONORA
The fiery torment ...
My life is complete.

FERNANDO
Oh heaven!

LEONORA
I die
forgiven, Fernando, and I'm blessed!
One day, beyond the grave
gathered we will be. Goodbye!
dies

FERNANDO
Leonora!
Leonora, it is my voice
that calls you back, the lights still open,
I am it, I am your husband; ah everything is in vain!
To the rescue, to the rescue!


SCENE ULTIMA
Baldassarre followed by the Choir and said.

FERNANDO
Ah father, it is given!
My Leonora.

BALDASSARRE
lowers towards the corpse and recognizes it
Oh, who I see!

FERNANDO

BALDASSARRE
Silence, she is already extinguished.
then he turns to the others
On the new peregrin,

FERNANDO
I too
will have your preceeded.

ALL
