Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

CAPULET
Ma fille, cède aux vœux du fiancé qui t'aime!
Le ciel va nous unir par des nœds éternels!
De cet hymen béni voici l'instant suprême!
Le bonheur vous attend au pied des saints autels!

Pâris s'avance et se dispose à passer son anneau au doigt de Juliette.

JULIETTE
retirant sa main et à demi-voix comme dans un rêve
La haine est le berceau de cet amour fatal!
Que le cercueil soit mon lit nuptial!
Elle porte la main à sa tête et détache sa couronne de fiancée; ses cheveux se déroulent et tombent sur ses épaules.

CAPULET
Juliette! reviens à toi!

JULIETTE
Ah! soutenez-moi! je chancelle!
On l'entourne et on la soutient.
Quelle nuit m'environne? et quelle voix m'appelle?
Est-ce la mort? j'ai peur!!! mon père!!! adieu!
Elle tombe inanimée dans les bras de ceux qui l'entournent.

CAPULET
égaré
Juliette!!! ma fille!! ah!!!
atterré
Morte!!

TOUS
Morte!

CAPULET
avec désespoir
Morte!

TOUSJuste Dieu!

English Libretto or Translation:

CAPULET
My daughter, give in to the wishes of the fiancé who loves you!
The sky will unite us by eternal knots!
From this blessed hymen here is the supreme moment!
Happiness awaits you at the foot of the holy altars!

Paris advances and is ready to put his ring on Juliet's finger.

JULIETTE
withdrawing his hand and in a low voice as in a dream
Hatred is the cradle of this fatal love!
Let the coffin be my wedding bed!
She holds her hand to her head and unties her bride crown; his hair unrolls and falls on his shoulders.

CAPULET
Juliette! come back to you!

JULIETTE
Ah! Support Me! I'm staggering!
We surround him and support him.
What night is it surrounding me? and what voice is calling me?
Is it death? I'm afraid!!! my father!!! farewell!
She falls inanimate in the arms of those who surround her.

CAPULET
lost
Juliette !!! my daughter!! ah !!!
aghast
Dead !!

ALL
Dead!

CAPULET
with despair
Dead!

ALL
Just God!
