LEONORA Ascolta. Tacea la notte placida e bella in ciel sereno La luna il viso argenteo Mostrava lieto e pieno... Quando suonar per l'aere, Infino allor sì muto, Dolci s'udiro e flebili Gli accordi d'un liuto, E versi melanconici Un Trovator cantò. Versi di prece ed umile Qual d'uom che prega Iddio In quella ripeteasi Un nome... il nome mio!... Corsi al veron sollecita... Egli era! egli era desso!... Gioia provai che agli angeli Solo è provar concesso!... Al core, al guardo estatico La terra un ciel sembrò.
English Libretto or Translation:
LEONORA Listen! The serene night was silent and, lovely in the calm sky, the moon happily revealed its silvery and full face! When, resounding in the air which till then had been so quiet, sweet and sad were heard the sounds of a lute, and a troubadour sang some melancholy verses. Verses, beseeching and humble, like a man praying to God: and in them was repeated a name, my name! I ran eagerly to the balcony... There he was; it was he! I felt a joy that only the angels are allowed to feel! To my heart, my ecstatic eyes, the earth seemed like heaven! To my heart, etc.
