Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

JAGO
avvicinandosi a Otello che si sarà accasciato su d'una sedia
(Una parola)

OTELLO
(E che?)

JAGO
(T'affretta! Rapido
slancia la tua vendetta! Il tempo vola).

OTELLO
(Ben parli).

JAGO
(È l'ira inutil ciancia. Scuotiti!
All'opra ergi tua mira! All'opra sola!
Io penso a Cassio. Ei le sue trame espia.
L'infame anima ria l'averno inghiotte!)

OTELLO
(Chi gliela svelle?)

JAGO
(Io).

OTELLO
(Tu?)

JAGO
(Giurai).

OTELLO
(Tal sia)

JAGO
(Tu avrai le sue novelle questa notte)
ironicamente a Roderigo
(I sogni tuoi saranno in mar domani
e tu sull'aspra terra).

English Libretto or Translation:

(Iago draws close to Othello who has collapsed onto achair.)

IAGO
A word with you.

OTHELLO
What is it?

IAGO
Make haste!

Let your vengeance be swift!
Time flies.

OTHELLO
You speak truly.

IAGO
Angry words are idle gossip. Act!
Aim at the objective, that alone!
I shall deal with Cassio.
He shall pay for his intrigues,
and hell shall swallow up his guilty soul!

OTHELLO
Who will pluck it from him?

IAGO
I myself.

OTHELLO
You?

IAGO
I have sworn.

OTHELLO
So be it.

IAGO
You shall hear more tonight.
