N. 8 1/2 - Scena Banco

SCENA IV
Banco e Fleanzio.


BANCO
Studia il passo, o mio figlio...
usciam da queste tenebre...un senso ignoto
Nascer mi sento il petto,
Pien di tristo presagio e di sospetto.
Come dal ciel precipita
L'ombra piů 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.
Si perdono nel parco?voce di Banco entro la scena:
Ohimé!...Fuggi, mio figlio!...oh tradimento!

Fleanzio attraversa la scena inseguito da un sicario

English Libretto or Translation:

They leave.
Enter Banquo and Fleance


BANQUO
Hurry, my son, let us escape
from these shadows.
I can feel an unknown sensation rising in my heart,
filled with sad foreboding and suspicion.

How the gloom falls
more and more darkly from heaven!
It was on a night like this
that they stabbed my lord Duncan.
A thousand feverish images
foretell misfortune to me
and cloud my thoughts
with phantoms and fears.
They go off into the park
Alas! Fly, my son! Treachery!

Fleance crosses the scene pursued by one of the assassins.
