Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Turandot
Chi pose tanta forza nel tuo cuore?

Liù
Principessa, l'amore!

Turandot
L'amore?

Liù
Tanto amore segreto e inconfessato, grande così
che questi strazi son dolcezze per me
perché ne faccio dono al mio Signore.
Perché, tacendo, io gli do, gli do il tuo amore…
Te gli do, Principessa, e perdo tutto!
Persino l'impossibile speranza!
Legatemi! Straziatemi!
Tormenti e spasimi date a me,
ah, come offerta suprema del mio amore!

Turandot
Strappatele il segreto!

Ping
Chiamate Pu-Tin-Pao!

Calaf
No! Maledetto! Maledetto!

La folla
Il boia! Il boia! Il boia!

Ping
Sia messa alla tortura!

La folla
Alla tortura! Sì, il boia!
Parli! Alla tortura!

Liù
Più non resisto! Ho paura di me!
Lasciatemi passare!

La folla
Parla! Parla!

English Libretto or Translation:

Turandot
Who put so much strength into your heart?

Liù
Princess, love!

Turandot
The love?

Liù
So much love secret and unconfessed, so great
that these strazi are sweetness for me
because I give it to my Lord.
Because, keeping silent, I give him, I give him your love ...
I give you, Princess, and I lose everything!
Even the impossible hope!
Tie me! Straziatemi!
Torments and spasms given to me,
ah, as the supreme offering of my love!

Turandot
Tear up the secret!

Ping
Call Pu-Tin-Pao!

Calaf
No! Cursed! Cursed!

The crowd
The Executioner! The Executioner! The Executioner!

Ping
Be put to torture!

The crowd
To torture! Yes, the executioner!
You speak! To torture!

Liù
No longer can I resist! I'm afraid of me!
Let me pass!

The crowd
Speaks! Speaks!
