Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

OTELLO
S'inginocchia
Si, pel ciel marmoreo giuro!
Per le attorte folgori!
Per la Morte e per l'oscuro mar sterminator!
D'ira e d'impeto tremendo
presto fia che sfolgori
Questa man ch'io levo e stendo!

Levando la mano al cielo. Otello fa per alzarsi; Jago lo trattiene inginocchiato

JAGO
s'inginocchia anch'esso
Non v'alzate ancor!
Testimon è il Sol ch'io miro,
che m'irradia e inanima
l'ampia terra e il vasto spiro
del Creato inter,
che ad Otello io sacro ardenti,
core, braccio ed anima
s'anco ad opere cruenti
s'armi il suo voler!

JAGO e OTELLO
alzando le mani al cielo come chi giura
Sì, pel ciel marmoreo giuro!
Per le attorte folgori!
Per la Morte e per l'oscuro mar sterminator!
D'ira e d'impeto tremendo presto fia
che sfolgori questa man ch'io levo e stendo!
Dio vendicator!



ATTO TERZO

English Libretto or Translation:

OTHELLO
(He kneels.)
Now, by yond marble heaven!
By the jagged lightning-flash!
By Death, and by the dark
death-dealing ocean flood!
In fury and dire compulsion
shall thunder-bolts soon rain


(raising his hands to the sky)
from this hand that I raise outstretched!
(He starts to rise; Iago prevents him.)

IAGO (kneeling also)
Do not rise yet!
Witness, you sun that I gaze on,
which lights me and which animates
the broad earth and the spiritual expanse
of the whole universe,
that to Othello I do consecrate
ardently heart, hands and soul
even though on bloody business
his will be bent!

OTHELLO, IAGO
(raising their hands to heaven in an oath-taking gesture)
Now, by yond marble heaven!
By the jagged lightning-flash, etc.
God of vengeance!
