Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Gérard saluta, ma ad un cenno dell'Incredibile esce premuroso dalle file dei Rappresentanti e gli si avvicina lasciandosi trarre da lui in disparte.

MATHIEU, LA FOLLA
vedendo comparire Robespierre
Viva Robespierre! Evviva!

L'INCREDIBILE
a Gérard
La donna che mi hai chiesto di cercare
è bianca o bionda?

CHÉNIER
accennando a Robespierre
Egli cammina solo.

GÉRARD
all'Incredibile
Azzurro occhio di cielo
sotto una fronte candida;
bionda la chioma con riflessi d'or;...

ROUCHER
a Chénier
E quanto spazio ad arte
fra il nume e i sacerdoti!
Ecco Tallien!

LA FOLLA
Barère!... Collot d'Herbois!...
Quello è Couthon!... Saint-Just!

CHÉNIER
L'enigma!

GÉRARD
... una dolcezza in viso
ed un sorriso di donna non umano;...

LA FOLLA
David!... Tallien!... Fréron!...
Barras!... Fouché!...

ROUCHER
Ultimo vedi?

GÉRARD
... nel suo vestir modesto;
pudico velo sovra il tesoro ...

CHÉNIER
Robespierre il piccolo!

LA FOLLA
... Le Bas!... Thuriot!... Carnot!...

GÉRARD
... d'un seno vergineo,
ed una bianca cuffia sulla testa.
Dammi codesta creatura vaga!
Ti dissi: Cerca! Indaga!
Dinanzi mi è passata qual baleno un dì,
ma poscia l'ho perduta!
Or più non vivo; peno!
Mi salva tu da questa angoscia
e tutto avrai!

English Libretto or Translation:

Gérard greets, but at a nod from the Incredible he comes out thoughtful from the ranks of the Representatives and approaches him, letting himself be drawn away from him.

MATHIEU, THE CROWD
seeing Robespierre appear
Viva Robespierre! Hooray!

THE AMAZING
to Gérard
The woman you asked me to look for
is she white or blonde?

CHÉNIER
hinting at Robespierre
He walks alone.

GÉRARD
the incredible
Blue eye of heaven
under a white front;
blonde hair with reflections d'or; ...

ROUCHER
in Chénier
And how much space to art
between the god and the priests!
Here is Tallien!

THE CROWD
Barère! ... Collot d'Herbois! ...
That's Couthon! ... Saint-Just!

CHÉNIER
The enigma!

GÉRARD
... a sweetness in the face
and a smile of a non-human woman; ...

THE CROWD
David! ... Tallien! ... Fréron! ...
Barras! ... Fouché! ...

ROUCHER
Last see?

GÉRARD
... in his modest vestir;
pudico veil over the treasure ...

CHÉNIER
Robespierre the little one!

THE CROWD
... Le Bas! ... Thuriot! ... Carnot! ...

GÉRARD
... of a virgin breast,
and a white cap on the head.
Give me this vague creature!
I told you: Search! Investigate!
In front of me has passed me a day,
but then I lost it!
I no longer live; I suffer!
You save me from this anguish
and all you will have!
