Macbeth
Sappia la sposa mia ... Regna il sonno su tutti ... Allor questa voce ... Il pugnal là riportate ... Vieni altrove, ogni sospetto (in German; Geh', melde meiner Herrin ... Rings liegt alles im Schlafe ... Dann hörte ich plötzlich ... Hier, den Dolch, gib ihn den Wachen ... Komm', dass dem Argwohn wir entrinnen)

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:


SCENA XII
Lady Macbeth.


LADY
Regna il sonno su tutti... Oh, qual lamento!
Risponde il gufo al suo lugubre addio!

MACBETH
di dentro
Chi v'ha?

LADY
Ch'ei fosse di letargo uscito
Pria del colpo mortal?

English Libretto or Translation:

Lady Macbeth enters slowly, alone.

LADY MACBETH
Sleep reigns over everyone.
Ah, that moaning!
The owl responds
To his mournful farewell.

MACBETH
within
Who’s there?

LADY MACBETH
What if he was roused from his sleep
before the fatal blow?
