Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

NINIA
Qual densa notte! - ove scendiamo! e quale
Invincibil terror l'alma m'assale!
Un raccapriccio... Un fremito... Un orrendo
Presagio... che m'agghiaccia. - Io non saprei
Perché... ma piango.

OROE
Al grande istante or sei.
Snuda quel ferro. - Ardire,
Non pensar che a ferire.

NINIA
Ma chi ferir degg'io?
La vittima dov'è?

OROE
La guida un Dio.
(Si ritira).

NINIA
Tremendo arcano!... Ah! il solo Assur!
Oh padre... Sì, a piè della tua tomba
A te lo immolerò.
(Va aggirandosi, e si perde di vista).
(Assur si presenta da parte opposta).


ASSUR
Fra questi orrori,
Furie, che m'agitate,
Reggete i passi miei, l'acciar guidate.
Orgoglioso rival, a mie vendette
T'abbandona la sorte;
Qui troverai la morte...
E la tomba.
(Va sperdendosi fra le volte).
(Semiramide dal fondo).

English Libretto or Translation:

ninia
What a dense night! - where we go down! and which
Invincible terror the alma hits me!
A horror ... A shudder ... A horrible one
Presage ... that chills me. - I would not know
Because ... but I cry.

OROE
At the great moment or six.
Snuda that iron. - Ardire,
Do not think of it to hurt.

ninia
But who will hurt?
Where is the victim?

OROE
The guide a God.
(He retires).

ninia
Tremendous arcane! ... Ah! the only Assur!
Oh father ... Yes, at the foot of your grave
I will immolate you.
(He goes around and gets lost in sight).
(Assur presents itself on the opposite side).

ASSUR
Among these horrors,
Furies, which you stir up,
Regulate my steps, the acciar guide.
Proud rival, to my revenge
Fate leaves you;
Here you will find death ...
And the grave.
(He gets lost among the times).
(Semiramide from the bottom).
