Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Studia il passo, o mio figlio...
Usciam da queste tenèbre...
Un senso ignoto
Nascer mi sento in petto,
Pien di tristo presagio e di sospetto.

Come dal ciel precipita
L'ombra più sempre oscura!
In notte ugual trafissero
Duncano, il mio signor.
Mille affannose immagini
M'annunciano sventura,
E il mio pensiero ingombrano
Di larve e di terror.

Ohimè !... Fuggi, mio figlio !
O tradimento !...

English Libretto or Translation:

Be careful how you go, o my son...
Let’s go out from this darkness...
I feel something unknown
Growing in my heart,
Fraught with sad premonition and suspicion.

How the shade falls from heaven
More and more obscure !
On such another night as this
They stabbed to death Duncan, my lord.
A thousand nightmares
Are foretelling me misfortune,
And are oppressing my mind
With ghosts and dread.

Alack !... Run away, o my son !...
O treachery !
