CHŒUR

Vérone vit jadis deux familles rivales, Les Montaigus, les Capulets, De leurs guerres sans fin, à toutes deux fatales, Ensanglanter le seuil de ses palais. Comme un rayon vermeil brille en un ciel d'orage, Juliette parut, et Roméo l'aima! Et tous deux, oubliant le nom qui les outrage, Un même amour les enflamma! Sort funeste! aveugles colères! Ces malheureux amants payèrent de leurs jours La fin des heines séculaires Qui virent naître leurs amours!

English Libretto or Translation:

CHOIR

Verona once saw two rival families, The Montaigus, the Capulets, From their endless wars, both fatal, Ensanglanter the threshold of his palaces. As a ruddy ray shines in a stormy sky, Juliet appeared, and Romeo loved it! And both, forgetting the name that outrages them, The same love enflamed them! Deadly spell! blind anger! These unfortunate lovers paid with their lives The end of the age-old heines Who saw the birth of their loves!
