Il balen del suo sorriso, Count di Luna's aria from Il Trovatore

Ardita, e qual furente amore		(Daring, they asked me 
ed irritato orgoglio			about maddening love
chiesero a me. 				and wounded pride.)
Spento il rival, caduto			My rival dead, 
ogni ostacol sembrava ai miei desiri;	when every hindrance seemed removed 
						from the achievent of my wishes;
novello e più possente ella 		she now lies out a new and a most 
	ne appresta...				difficult obstacle ...
L' altare! Ah, no, non fia		The altar! Oh no, let not
D' altri Leonora!			Leonora be but mine!...
Leonora è mia!				Leonora is mine!

Il balen del suo sorriso		The flashing of her smile
D' una stella vince il raggio!		shines more than a star!
Il fungor del suo bel viso		The radiance of her beautiful features
novo infonde in me coraggio!...		Gives me new corage!...
Ah! l' amor, l' amor ond' ardo		Ah! Let the love that burns inside me
le favelli in mio favor!		speak to her in my favour!
Sperda il sole d' un suo sguardo	Let the sun's glance clear up 
la tempesta del mio cor.		the tempest raging in my heart.
Qual suono!...oh ciel...		What a noise!...oh heavens...

Per me, ora fatale, the Count's aria from Il Trovatore

Per me, ora fatale,		Come to me, death,
i tuoi momenti affretta:	come swiftly:
la gioia che m' aspetta		the joy that awaits me
gioia mortal non è!		can only be reached in Heaven!
Invano un Dio rivale		In vain a hostile God -
s' oppone nemmeno un Dio,	not even a God -
donna, rapirti a me!		could steal you from me, woman!
