Percuotete quei vili!
"Gelo che ti dà foco e dal tuo foco più gelo prende!
Candida ed oscura!
Se libero ti vuol ti fa più servo.
Se per servo t'accetta, ti fa Re!"
Su, straniero, ti sbianca la paura!
E ti senti perduto!
Su, straniero, il gelo che dà foco,
che cos'è?"

La mia vittoria ormai t'ha data a me!
Il mio fuoco ti sgela: Turandot!

I Sapienti
Turandot! Turandot! Turandot!

English Libretto or Translation:

Beat those cowards!
"Frost that gives you fire and takes more from your fire!
Candid and obscure!
If free, he wants you more than a servant.
If he accepts you as a servant, he makes you King! "
Up, stranger, you bleach the fear!
And you feel lost!
Up, foreign, the frost that gives focus,
what is that?"

My victory has given you to me now!
My fire melts you: Turandot!

The wise
Turandot! Turandot! Turandot!
