Salve, o Re!

Voi pur salvete, nobilissimi signori.

CORO
Salve, o donna!

LADY
Ricevete la merce' dei vostri onori.

MACBETH
Prenda ciascun l'orrevole
Seggio al suo grado eletto.
Pago son io d'accogliere
Tali ospiti a banchetto.
La mia consorte assidasi
Nel trono a lei sortito,
Ma pria le piaccia un brindisi
Sciogliere, a vostr'onor.

LADY
Al tuo regale invito
Son pronta, o mio signor.

CORO
E tu ne udrai rispondere
Come ci detta il cor.

Hail, madam!

LADY MACBETH
Accept my thanks for your praise.

MACBETH
Let everyone take his place
according to his rank.
I am pleased to greet
such guests at the banquet.
Let my consort take
her appointed place on the throne.
But first let her offer
a toast in your honour.

LADY MACBETH
I am ready to answer
your royal request, my lord.

ALL
And you will hear our reply,
prompted by our hearts.
