Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

DESDEMONA
Esterrefatta fisso lo sguardo tuo tremendo,
in te parla una Furia, la sento e non l'intendo.
Mi guarda! il volto e l'anima ti svelo; il core infranto
mi scruta…io prego il cielo per te con questo pianto,
per te con queste stille cocenti aspergo il suol.
Guarda le prime lagrime, che da me spreme il duol.

English Libretto or Translation:

DESDEMONA
Horror-struck, I gaze into
your stern and terrifying eyes,
I hear a fury in your words

but do not comprehend them.
Look at me! My face, my soul
I show you; my stricken heart
search well... I pray to heaven
for you with these my tears;
for you these burning drops
I shed upon the ground.
Behold the first tears ever wrung
from me by suffering.
The first tears!
