Magnifico tempio eretto a Belo, festivamente
adornato.


SCENA PRIMA
Oroe nel santuario, a' piedi del simulacro di
Belo; Magi che, prostrati e chini, adorano;
ministri disposti fuori del santuario e
prostrati; Oroe in atto di celeste visione.


OROE
(dopo essersi rianimato, e colle
braccia tese verso il simulacro)

Sì... Gran Nume... t'intesi.
I venerandi tuoi decreti adoro:
E l'istante tremendo
Della giustizia, di vendetta attendo.
(S'alza, seco i Magi e i ministri).
Or dell'Assiria a' popoli accorrenti,
Alle straniere genti, a' prenci, a' regi,
Del nuovo augusto tempio a Belo sacro,
Ministri, voi l'aurate porte aprite:
(I ministri apriranno le due gran porte
laterali).

E a me d'intorno voi, Magi, v'unite.
(Si ritira in mezzo ai Magi al santuario).

English Libretto or Translation:

ACT ONE

 

Magnificent temple erected in Belo, festively
adorned.

FIRST SCENE
Oroe in the sanctuary, at the foot of the simulacrum of
Belo; Magi who, prostrate and bowed, adore;
ministers arranged outside the sanctuary e
prostrate; Oroe in act of celestial vision.

OROE
(after having revived, and colle
arms stretched towards the simulacrum)
Yes ... Gran Nume ... I mean you.
Your venerable decrees I adore:
And the tremendous instant
Of justice, of revenge I await.
(The Magi and the ministers rise up with him).
Or of Assyria to 'acceding peoples,
To foreign people, a 'prenci, a' regi,
Of the new august temple in Belo sacred,
Ministers, you open the aurate doors:
(The ministers will open the two great doors
lateral).
And to me around you, Magi, unite you.
(He retires among the Magi to the sanctuary).
