Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

BORSA, MARULLO, CEPRANO, CORO
Zitti, zitti, moviamo a vendetta;
Ne sia colto or che meno l'aspetta.
Derisore sì audace, costante
A sua volta schernito sarà!
Cheti, cheti, rubiamgli l'amante
E la Corte doman riderà.

Cheti, cheti, ecc.
Derisore sì audace, ecc.
Zitti... cheti... attenti all'opra.

Alcuni salgono al terrazzo, rompono la porta del primo piano, scendono, aprono ad altri che entrano dalla strada e riescono trascinando Gilda, la quale ha la bocca chiusa da un fazzoletto; nel traversare la scena ella perde una sciarpa.

GILDA
da lontano
Soccorso, padre mio!

BORSA, MARULLO, CEPRANO, CORO
da lontano
Vittoria!

GILDA
più lontano
Aita!

RIGOLETTO
Non han finito ancor! …qual derisione!
Si tocca gli occhi.
Sono bendato! … Gilda!
Si strappa impetuosamente la benda e la maschera, ed al chiarore d'una lanterna scordata riconosce la sciarpa, vede la porta aperta: entra, ne trae Giovanna spaventata; la fissa con istupore, si strappa i capelli senza poter gridare; finalmente, dopo molti sforzi, esclama:
Ah! la maledizione!

English Libretto or Translation:

BORSA, MARULLO, CEPRANO, CHORUS
Softly, softly, the trap is closing;
now we shall catch him, all unsuspecting.
The mocker so insolent, so unremitting,
will soon be a butt of derision himself!
Stealthily, stealthily we'll kidnap his mistress,
and in the morning the whole Court will laugh!
Stealthily, stealthily, etc.
The mocker so insolent, etc.
Softly… stealthily …to work.

Some of the men climb up to the terrace, force the door, open the gate from the inside to admit the others, then emerge dragging Gilda, gagged with a handkerchief. As she is carried off she drops a scarf.

GILDA
from afar
Help, father!

BORSA, MARULLO, CEPRANO, CHORUS
in the distance
Victory!

GILDA
from further away
Help!

RIGOLETTO
They haven't finished yet! …A good joke this!
touching his eyes
I'm blindfolded!... Gilda!

He tears off the mask and the blindfold. By the light of a lantern left by Marullo's men, he sees Gilda's scarf, then the open gate. Rushing into the courtyard, he drags out the terrified Giovanna and stares at her, stupefied, speechless, he tears his hair. Finally, after a great struggle, he cries out.

Ah, the curse!
