Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

LEONORA
È tardi.

ALVARO
Allor di calma è duopo.

CURRA
Vergin santa!

LEONORA
a Don Alvaro
Colà t'ascondi.

ALVARO
traendo una pistola
No. Difenderti degg'io.

LEONORA
Ripon quell'arma. Contro al genitore
Vorresti? . . .

ALVARO
No, contro me stesso!

LEONORA
Orrore!

SCENA IV

Dopo vari colpi, apresi con istrepito la porta, ed il Marchese di Calatrava entra infuriato, brandendo una spada e seguito da due servi con lumi.

MARCHESE
Vil seduttor! Infame figlia!

LEONORA
correndo a suoi piedi
No, padre mio.

MARCHESE
Io più nol sono.

ALVARO
Il solo colpevole son io.
presentandogli il petto
Ferite, vendicatevi.

MARCHESE
No, la condotta vostra
Da troppo abbietta origine
Uscito vi dimostra.

ALVARO
risentito
Signor Marchese!

MARCHESE
a Leonora
Scostati.
ai servi
S'arresti l'empio.

ALVARO
cavando nuovamente la pistola
Guai se alcun di voi si muove.

LEONORA
correndo a lui
Alvaro, oh ciel, che fai?

ALVARO
al Marchese
Cedo a voi sol, ferite.

MARCHESE
Morir per mano mia!
Per mano del carnefice
Tal vita spenta sia!

ALVARO
Signor di Calatrava!
Pura siccome gli angeli
È vostra figlia, il giuro;
Reo sono io solo. Il dubbio
Che l'ardir mio qui desta.
Si tolga colla vita. Eccomi inerme.

Getta via la pistola che, cadendo al suolo scarica il colpo, e ferisce mortalmente il Marchese.

MARCHESE
Io muoio!

ALVARO
disperato
Arma funesta!

LEONORA
correndo al padre
Aita!

MARCHESE
a Leonora
Lungi da me.
Contamina tua vista la mia morte!

LEONORA
Padre!

MARCHESE
Ti maledico!
Cade tra le braccia dei servi

LEONORA
Cielo, pietade!

ALVARO:
Oh, sorte!

I servi portano via il Marchese, mentre Don Alvaro trae seco verso il verone la sventurata Leonora.

English Libretto or Translation:

LEONORA
It is too late!

ALVARO
Then we must
keep calm.

CURRA
Holy Virgin!

LEONORA
to Don Alvaro
Hide in there.
indicating her room

ALVARO
drawing a pistol
No, I must protect you.

LEONORA
Put away that gun. Would you
raise it against my father?

ALVARO
No, against myself.

He replaces the pistol.

LEONORA
Horror!

After several blows, the rear door on the left is noisily thrown open. The Marquis of Calatrava enters in a rage, brandishing a sword; he is followed by two servants carrying lamps.

MARQUIS
Vile seducer! Shameless daughter!

LEONORA
throwing herself at his feet
No, father -

MARQUIS
repulsing her
No longer am I your father!

ALVARO
to the Marquis
I alone am the guilty one.
baring his chest
Strike - take your revenge!

MARQUIS
to Don Alvaro
No, your conduct
shows the baseness of your origins.

ALVARO
offended
My lord!

MARQUIS
to his daughter
Stand aside.
to the servants
Arrest the scoundrel!

ALVARO
again taking out the pistol, to the servants, who back away
Beware,
if either of you moves …

LEONORA
running to him
Alvaro - heavens, what are you doing?

ALVARO
to the Marquis
I yield to you alone. Strike!

MARQUIS
Die by my hand? Let such a life
be ended by that of the executioner!

ALVARO
My Lord of Calatrava! Pure as the angels
is your daughter - I swear it; I alone am guilty. Let the suspicion
aroused by my boldness be removed along with my life.
Here I stand, unarmed …

He throws down the pistol; as it strikes the ground, it goes off, mortally wounding the Marquis.

MARQUIS
I am dying!

ALVARO
desperately
Fatal weapon!

LEONORA
running to her father's side
Help!

MARQUIS
to Leonora
Get away from me! The sight of you sullies my death.

LEONORA
Father!

MARQUIS
I curse you!

He falls into the arms of his servants.

LEONORA
in desperation
Heaven, have mercy!

ALVARO
Oh, cruel destiny!

The servants carry the Marquis to his apartments while Don Alvaro drags the unfortunate Leonora with him towards the balcony.
