Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Capulet entre en scène conduisant Juliette par la main. À son aspect tout le monde démasque.

CAPULET
Soyez la bienvenue, amis, dans ma maison!
À cette fête de la famille,
La joie est de saison!
Pareil jour vit naître ma fille!
Mon cœur bat de plaisir encore en y songeant!
Mais excusez ma tendresse indiscrète
présentant Juliette
Voici ma Juliette!
Accueillez-la d'un regard indulgent.

CHŒUR
Ah! qu'elle est belle!
On dirait une fleur nouvelle
Qui s'épanouit au matin.
Ah! quelle est belle!
Elle semble porter en elle
Toutes les faveurs du destin.
Ah! qu'elle est belle!

On entend le prélude d'un air de danse.

JULIETTE
Écoutez! écoutez!
C'est le son des instruments joyeux
Qui nous appelle et nous convie!
Ah! Tout un monde enchanté semle naître à mes yeux!
Tout me fête et m'enivre!
Et mon âme ravie
S'élance dans la vie
Comme l'oiseau s'envole aux cieux!

English Libretto or Translation:

Capulet enters the scene leading Juliet by the hand. At his appearance everyone unmasks.

CAPULET
Welcome, friends, in my house!
At this family party,
Joy is in season!
That day saw my daughter born!
My heart still beats with pleasure!
But excuse my indiscreet tenderness
presenting Juliette
Here is my Juliet!
Welcome her with an indulgent look.

CHOIR
Ah! that she is beautiful!
Looks like a new flower
Who flourishes in the morning.
Ah! that she is beautiful!
She seems to carry in it
All the favors of destiny.
Ah! that she is beautiful!

We hear the prelude of a dance tune.

JULIETTE
Listen! listen!
It's the sound of joyful instruments
Who calls us and invites us!
Ah! A whole enchanted world is born to my eyes!
All feast and intoxicate me!
And my soul delighted
Get started in life
As the bird flies to heaven!
