Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

CONTE
Tace la notte! immersa
Nel sonno, certo, la regal Signora;
Ma veglia la sua dama...
Oh! Leonora,
Tu desta sei; mel dice,
Da quel verone, tremolante un raggio
Della notturna lampa...
Ah! l'amorosa fiamma
M'arde ogni fibra!...
Ch'io ti vegga d'uopo,
Che tu m'intenda...
Vengo... A noi supremo
tal momento...
Cieco d'amore avviasi verso la gradinata. Odonsi gli accordi d'un liuto: egli s'arresta
Il Trovator! Io fremo!

English Libretto or Translation:

COUNT
The night is still!
The queen is surely
immersed in sleep;
but her lady is wakeful
Oh! Leonora, you're awake;
I'm told, from that balcony,
by the quivering ray
of your night lamp.
Ah, the flame of love
burns my every fibre!
I must see you,
you must hear me. I'm coming.
This is our supreme moment.
He starts to go up the steps, but stops, hearing a lute.
The Troubadour! I tremble with rage!
