Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ATTO QUARTO

Il cortile delle prigioni di S. Lazzaro.
Notte alta.


Andrea Chénier sta seduto sotto alla lanterna che dà luce, e scrive sopra una piccola assicella con una matita fatta di un pezzo di piombo, scrive ora con foga, ora arrestandosi e riflettendo come in cerca di qualche parola o rima. Roucher gli è vicino.

Schmidt entra nel cortile e si avvicina a Roucher:

SCHMIDT
Cittadino, men duol, ma è tardi assai.

Indicandogli Chénier, Roucher gli fa cenno di tacere; si fruga indosso e trova un po' di danaro e lo dà a Schmidt.

ROUCHER
Pazienta ancora un attimo!

Schmidt parte.

CHÉNIER
cessa di scrivere
Non più ...

ROUCHER
Leggi!

CHÉNIER
Pochi versi ...

ROUCHER
Leggi!

English Libretto or Translation:

ACT FOURTH

The courtyard of the prisons of S. Lazzaro.
High night.

Andrea Chénier is seated under the lantern that gives light, and writes on a small clapboard with a pencil made of a piece of lead, writes now with enthusiasm, now stopping and reflecting as if searching for some words or rhyme. Roucher is close to him.

Schmidt enters the courtyard and approaches Roucher:

SCHMIDT
Citizen, men duol, but it is very late.

Indicating to him Chénier, Roucher beckons him to keep quiet; He rummages around and finds some money and gives it to Schmidt.

ROUCHER
Continue for a moment!

Schmidt departs.

CHÉNIER
he ceases to write
Not anymore ...

ROUCHER
Read!

CHÉNIER
Few verses ...

ROUCHER
Read!
