Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Calaf
Tre enigmi m'hai proposto, e tre ne sciolsi.
Uno soltanto a te ne proporrò:
Il mio nome non sai. Dimmi il mio nome.
Dimmi il mio nome prima dell'alba, e all'alba morirò…

L'Imperatore
Il cielo voglia che col primo sole mio figliolo tu sia!

English Libretto or Translation:

Calaf
Three puzzles you proposed to me, and three of them broke up.
Only one I will propose to you:
My name you do not know. Tell me my name.
Tell me my name before dawn, and at dawn I will die ...

The emperor
Heaven want me to be with the first sun, my son!
