Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ATTO QUARTO

SCENA I
La Camera di Desdemona. Letto, inginocchiatoio, tavolo, specchio, sedie. Una lampada arde appesa davanti all'immagine della Madonna che sta al disopra dell'inginocchiatoio. Porta a destra. Un lume acceso sul tavolo. È notte.
Desdemona ed Emilia


EMILIA
Era più calmo?

DESDEMONA
Mi parea. M'ingiunse
di coricarmi e d'attenderlo. Emilia,
te ne prego, distendi sul mio letto
la mia candida veste nuziale.
Emilia eseguisce
Senti. Se pria di te morir dovessi
mi seppellisci con un di quei veli.

EMILIA
Scacciate queste idee.

English Libretto or Translation:

ACT FOUR

Desdemona’s bedroom. A bed, a prie-dieu, a table, a
mirror and some chairs. A lighted lamp hangs before
the image of the Madonna above the prie-dieu. On the
right is a door. It is night.
(Desdemona, with the assistance of Emilia, is preparing
for bed.)

EMILIA
Was he calmer?

DESDEMONA
He seemed so to me.
He commanded me to go to bed
and there await him.
Emilia, I pray you,
lay upon my bed
my white wedding nightgown.
(Emilia does so.)
Listen.
If I should die before you,
lay me to rest in one of those veils.

EMILIA
Put such thoughts from you.
