Quel nome!

No!

Quel nome!

La tua serva chiede perdono,
ma obbedir non pu˛! Ah!

Timur
PerchÚ gridi!

Calaf
Lasciatela!

Li¨
No, non grido pi¨! Non mi fan male!
No, nessun mi tocca!
Stringete, ma chiudetemi la bocca
ch'ei non mi senta! Non resisto pi¨!

La folla
Parla! Il suo nome!

Sia lasciata! Parla!

Piuttosto morr˛!

Chi pose tanta forza nel tuo cuore?

Principessa, l'amore!

L'amore?

That name!

Your servant asks for forgiveness,
but obeying can not! Ah!

Timur
Why cry!

Calaf
Leave her!

Li¨
No, I do not cry anymore! It does not hurt me!
No, no one touches me!
Hold on, but close my mouth
that he does not hear me! I can not resist anymore!

The crowd
Speaks! His name!

Turandot
Be left out! Speaks!

Li¨
I'll rather die!

Turandot
Who put so much strength into your heart?

Li¨
Princess, love!

Turandot
The love?
